Profusely illustrated catalogue of this major retrospective exhibition "with texts by thirty contributors including artists, commentators, writers and filmmakers, edited by Bice Curiger and designed in Zürich, in close collaboration with the artists." Including: Carved polyurethane objects / Boris Groys; Airports / John Waters; Questions / Franceso Bonami; Equilibres - quiet afternoon / Claire Bishop; Clay figures: suddenly this overview / Nancy Spector; The sausage photographs / Lynne Cooke; Rat and bear / Stefan Zweifel; The way things go / Arthur C. Danto; How to work better / Andres Lutz; Black sculptures, cast in synthetic rubber / Patrick Frey; Videos for Venice / Bice Curiger. From the publisher: "Fischli and Weiss’ conceptually-driven output covers a wide variety of forms including sculpture, photography, film, video, and installation art, and often involves a dialogue between opposites, such as order and chaos, work and leisure, the everyday and the sublime. A childlike spirit of discovery underlies their artistic ventures and they revel in transforming materials. Working project by project, they have broken with artistic convention, made use of commonplace materials and, among other things, created an extensive archive of popular images, all with characteristic wit and humour.".

About this title

Synopsis:

Since 1979, Peter Fischli and David Weiss have been cheerfully celebrating the banality of everyday existence and, in the process, rising to the forefront of the contemporary international art world. Their work deliberately ignores the traditional distinction between high and low art, and employs a wide variety of media, including photography, film, video, artists’ books, installation, and sculpture.

Featuring over 200 color illustrations arranged in spreads designed by the artists, Flowers & Questions is the most thorough survey to date of one of the most fascinating and varied careers in contemporary art. The book includes contributions from a wide range of writers, critics, artists, and filmmakers, including leading art critic Arthur C. Danto, cult filmmaker John Waters, curator and writer Hans Ulrich Obrist, and artist Tacita Dean.

About the Author:

Bice Curiger is a curator at Kunsthaus Zurich. She is cofounder and editor-in-chief of Parkett magazine and co-editor of Tate Etc magazine.
