Artist Urs Fischer Turned His Digital ‘CHAOS’ Sculpture Into a 2,000-Piece Puzzle—Perfect for the Art-Inclined Homebody, Vittoria Benzine, δημοσίευση Artnet News [15/12/2022]Marilena Pateraki
Swiss artist Urs Fischer is pulling from the Pop Shop and Scharf Schack playbook this season, taking over Jeffrey Deitch’s gallery in New York City to launch his new, image-based merch line UF. The brand made its debut at a Design District pop-up during the latest Miami Art Week. At present, UF pieces are only available for purchase at such sporadic, in-person activations.
Replete with palm trees and up-beat house music, Deitch’s UF Drop Shop (open through December 23) offers a colorful reprieve from the brisk SoHo streets while peddling up-cycled vintage clothing, signed prints, home furnishings, even books from Fischer’s personal collection, all of which fans can acquire for much less than his original artworks.
The crown jewel of the current UF collection transforms a still from Fischer’s digital sculpture CHAOS #501 (2022) into a 2,000-piece puzzle. The original artwork itself is a raw data file decoupling all 1,000 3D-scanned objects that appear throughout the 500 digital sculptures, or “collisions of things,” in Fischer’s pioneering 2021 NFT collection CHAOS #1-500. Each individual work pairs two unrelated objects.
CHAOS #501 culminates the expansive series, intermingling all 1,000 objects, from a gingerbread house to a pack of highlighters, so they float independently in an infinite tangle that can be rendered in a range of physical and digital manifestations. One digital sculpture from the NFT series depicts a gem-encrusted bird perched atop an orange bell pepper. Both items appear on their own somewhere in CHAOS #501—if you can find them.
