Urs Fischer @ MOCA, MOCA Geffen

I recently had the pleasure of checking out the Urs Fischer exhibition at MOCA and MOCA Geffen in LA on two separate occasions. Fischer’s work blurs the distinctions between sculpture, installation, and individual pieces of art.  Perhaps that’s why I so enjoy and dislike the work simultaneously.

Buy it. Use it. Pack it. Move it. Repeat.

Packing

Let me make a confession: I’m a deeply materialistic person. Although consumerism and the relentless buying of new things are activities I try to avoid, I’m still materialistic. I still accumulate.
