Roman Signer. Two Umbrellas
Roman Signer. Werke/Works
Volume 4 – 2002-2018
Edited by Alexandra Signer and Peter Zimmermann
With descriptions of the works by Roman Signer
This is the fourth volume in the series, which began to be published in 2003 and forms an overview of Roman Signer’s work. Signer‘s materials – water, fire, air and earth – are elements that intervene in the design of the work and complete it (Roman Signer). Making its production visible is usually part of his work. The artist himself comments on almost all of the 350 sculptures and actions without interpreting them. He states facts such as technical details, climate and the sequence of events, and thus gives the reader a precise impression of his work, almost elevating them to an observer of the action. The result is a catalogue raisonné and autonomous account of the work in this unique oeuvre.
