Urs Fischer @ Sant'Andrea de Scaphis
For his new show at Sant’Andrea de Scaphis, Urs Fischer presents Bliss, a single large-scale sculpture. Almost three meters tall it depicts the bust of a woman whose face is turned towards the altar, occupying the center of the 8th century deconsecrated church.
Bliss is realised in plasticine, a sensitive material more malleable than clay and easy to imprint and manipulate. The work is destined to be progressively transformed by viewer interventions, as the public is free to remodel the white surface of the sculpture by shaping it and unveiling its psychedelic interior.
