    About The Work

    Considered one of the most important Swiss artists working today, Roman Signer continues to challenge and re-imagine the sculptural medium. Incorporating a variety of everyday objects—such as umbrellas, bottles, boats and candles—in sparse and meditative displays, Signer’s work reflects on the transformative nature of intention, curiosity and subtly. Featured at the 1999 Venice Biennale in the Swiss Pavilion, Gleichzeitig (Simultaneous) was part of a performative instillation in which 117 steel and acrylic balls were hung in a grid—then simultaneously discharged from the infrastructure of the pavilion onto clay blocks positioned underneath. Like many of Signer’s works, this edition comments on the process of traditional sculpture, akin to “striking a chip from a block of marble.”
