is a Swiss contemporary artist living in New York and Los Angeles. Born in 1973, Urs Fischer began his career in Switzerland where he studied photography at the Schule fur Gestaltung, Zurich. He moved to Amsterdam in 1993 and had his first solo show at a gallery in Zurich, in 1996. Fischers subversive approach to art is often considered to be influenced by anti-art movements like Neo-Dada, Lost Art or the Situationist International. Since Fischer began showing his work, in the mid-nineteen-nineties, in Europe, he has produced an enormous number of objects, drawings, collages, and room-size installations. Fischer is represented by Sadie Coles HQ, London; Gavin Brown’s enterprise, New York; The Modern Institute, Glasgow; Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich; and Gagosian Gallery.
