Urs Fischer "Marguerite de Ponty," at The New Museum
‘Gigantic metal blobs that look like they are fake movie props made of styrofoam, and a deflated grand piano and lamp post à la Claes Oldenberg have all been cast in aluminum in a tediously painstaking and precise manner. Below on the third floor of the museum is the room that caused much hullabaloo in the media over the artist’s impossible (and expensive) requests (can we lower the ceiling?). It seems sparse at a casual glance, but the entire floor from the walls to the ceilings are covered with photographic renditions of the room slightly off, so that it almost creates a shadowy effect’. Words from Carol Lee at Paper Mag state the hyper experience one will get when they enter the rooms of new show from Urs Fischer entitled ‘Marguerite de Ponty’ showing now at The New Museum. Running through until February 7th 2010 you can see some of the inside images from the show below.
