About the work
Roman Signer
Swiss, b. 1938
Follow

Reminiscent of Jean Tinguely and the artist duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Roman Signer is an artist-engineer who devises actions and procedures that achieve humorous, unexpected, and aesthetically compelling results. Signer’s quasi-experiments often consist of setting off explosions, hurling objects into the air, or engineering collisions, which he documents on film and video. “I like to go into nature and try something out,” Signer has said. “That cannot be called work, it’s a pleasure.”
