Objects are an extension of our bodies, our needs, our desires.
Gagosian is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Urs Fischer in New York, coinciding with his presentation at the Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles.
Denominator features three new projects: Denominator (2020–22), a large sculpture composed of LED screens; People (2022), an installation based on a room at the National Gallery, London; and CHAOƧ #501, the culmination of the CHAOƧ series of digital sculptures.
Denominator is a 12-foot cube constructed from LED screens that display a sequence of fragments from international television commercials in a shifting composition that spans the history of the medium. Through the use of AI algorithms, the commercials have been deconstructed into individual shots, which are then grouped by theme or color and displayed in layered patterns and choreographed sequences.
