Fischli/Weiss: Rock on Top of Another Rock

Posted: 16.04.2013 at 11:59 | Comments: 0

‘In Norway and here, to put one rock on top of another rock in the wilderness is the first thing you do if you want to make a mark. When you walk and you want to find your way back… you make this mark. It is a very archaic, simple thing, but it is referencing the [Robert] Venturi duck. We wanted to make something that forces you to stop your car and get out to take a photograph.’ Peter Fischli

Since they began working together in the late 1970s, Swiss artists Peter Fischli (born 1952) and David Weiss (1946-2012) have become known for their transformations of the common-place and their finely-judged balance of humour and seriousness. (via)
