ROMAN SIGNER. SKULPTUR / FOTOGRAFIE
From 23 March to 1 July 2018
Thursday 22 March 2018, H18:30 - 21:00
Istituto Svizzero di Roma
via Ludovisi 48 - Metro A Barberini
Istituto Svizzero is pleased to present “Skulptur/ Fotografie”, a solo presentation by artist Roman Signer.
Roman Signer ranges among the most renowned contemporary Swiss artists with an extremely versatile body of work encompassing various disciplines such as sculpture, drawing, happening, installation-work, photography, and video. He is best known for his ephemeral time sculptures with which he has contributed to the redefinition of the concept of sculpture—tied to process, transformation and movement— since the mid-seventies.
His creative process often reveals, by means of a structured suspension in time, what is scarcely or very seldom visible. It’s a passing moment where slight transformations of shape and matter occur.
For his solo show in Rome he will present sculptures and photographs from different times of his prolific production. In particular he will exhibit some of his unprecedented early black and white photographs, which document his action/sculptures.
