Roman Signer: Street Pictures by Roman Signer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The futility of all human endeavour is strikingly expressed in Roman Signer's work. Since 1975 he has been creating sculptures, installations, photo sequences and short Super 8 films, in which he engages with all sorts of ordinary objects a chair or a kaya, for example which he drops, sinks or explodes with great precision. During these counter-productive actions he refers to them as Kurzzeitskulptur, Signer adopts a solemn attitude, striking a pose of great seriousness. This has earnt him a moniker as the Buster Keaton of art. In "Street Pictures", Signer juxtaposes two striking, yet familiar images. They are photos of roadside monuments and private stalls made by the artist on his many journeys, this time to the Ukraine.
