Published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles, this catalogue presents recent works from the often astonishing oeuvre of Swiss artist Urs Fischer. Known for his subversive approach to art, Fischer’s installations, sculptures, drawings, collages, and other pieces together invoke a world of visual and collective primary experiences – entering an exhibition conceived by him is to find oneself in an evocative space that is simultaneously amusing and theatrical, yet undeniably forceful in its visual language. Closely aligned with its venue, ‘Mon cher…’ is a clever and colourful homage to Van Gogh, the modern age, and anti-classicism.
