ルドルフ・スティンゲルが焼け落ちる Burning Down Rudolf Stingel
Sell The House, Sell The Car, Sell The Kids. Burning down the house. Watch out, you might get what you’re after. Even burning down your favourite artist, who paid your rent while you were his studio assistant in New York.
Actually the biggest player in the global art scene got a slap into his face by another big player of the same calibre. Entertaining comparative contemporary art studies: Arles vs Paris, – who will be the arty “winner”? (lol)
Even on the architectural level two titans are competing for world attention during this C-19 vacance en France: Japanese Ando vs American Gehry.
The race between completely different art patron practices gives us artists a welcomed stimulus, whilst wondering what the hell is going on in one own’s country.
Please keep in mind, that this work “Untitled” from 2011 by Urs Fischer exists in the edition of 2 plus 1 AP. Means, that we can actually watch edition 1 and 2 simultaneously melting down in the “private” exhibitions by Swiss collector Maja Hoffmann and French collector François Pinault.
First shown at the 54th Venice Art Biennale 2011, curated by Swiss Bice Curiger, Swiss Urs Fischer represented by the Swiss gallery Eva Presenhuber, realised with the support of the Swiss City of Zürich.
Anyway, which of the two “Untitled” works from 2011 (confusing right?) will be burned down first?
The bookmakers are open even during the lockdown in “Tokyo 2020”, which starts next week…more confusing…

Jun 27, 2013 Urs Fischer – Untitled, 2011 – MOCA U – MOCAtv
Amidst the crumbling of thousands of clay sculptures on the floor of The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA stands Urs Fischer’s “Untitled” (2011), a trio of perpetually changing sculptures which includes the artist’s bold reinterpretation of Giambologna’s sixteenth-century Mannerist masterpiece “Rape of the Sabine Women” as a monumental candle. This behind-the-scenes installation footage pictures sections of torsos and bodies lofted and affixed to each other to create the sculpture’s dynamic composition. Once the wicks are lit, the sculpture is subjected to a process of melting and dissolution, transforming the static figures and adding a performative element and a sense of duration to the work.
