Urs Fischer's Rotten Foundation

While tongue-in-cheek art is a theme throughout his work— frequently utilising decaying fruits and vegetables as his own conceptual commentary— the result here is topical in a way that transcends mere sarcasm. While Trump-era art is not an uncommon sight in New York this year, Urs brings something unique to Karma, whether coincidental or not. And it absolutely goes beyond pairing a chair with raspberry jam. Seemingly sparse, with four pieces total, the resulting experience as an observer is overwhelming, a motif that mocks materialism. It is at once uncomfortable, useful, and strangely beautiful— as we can only expect from Urs.
