Children, art lovers, philosophers and comedians have all found delight in the work of Swiss artist Roman Signer (born ), the Buster Keaton of contemporary art. Using constituents such as water, fire, air and earth, Signer makes a playground of the whole world, devising absurdist experiments in all kinds of environments, from desolate Author: Rachel Withers.

Roman Signer is an artist like no other.

Roman Signer (born in Appenzell, Switzerland) is principally a visual artist who works in sculpture, art installations photography, and video.

Early life and career. Born in Appenzell, Switzerland, Signer started his career as an artist later in life at the age of 28, after working as an architect’s draughtsman, a radio engineer.

If Roman Signer is best known for his spectacular actions involving explosions, transformations, and demolitions, these represent only one aspect of his oeuvre. Since the 70s, Signer has devoted much of his creative energy to a redefinition of sculpture, incorporating time, acceleration, and change into the sculptural process.

His artistic ideas revolve around the relationships between. Swiss artist Roman Signer has been redefining sculpture for more than 40 years and is now regarded as one of the finest representatives of Process and Conceptual art.

He produces elementary dynamic sculptures and installations, also known as time sculptures for their preoccupation with the transformation of materials and objects through time. This book, published by Mousse Publishing (, 80 pages), records the work of Roman Signer for ALL'APERTO.

Through a rich set of documentary images, it illustrates the project, production and installation of "Horloge", as well as the explosive action which marked its unveiling.

Roman Signer has always lived and worked in St. Gallen, in eastern Switzerland. I visited him at his studio recently, where he showed me how sand trickles down from the ceiling onto a violin suspended below and makes music in the process. One could say that while sand is the performer of the piece, Signer is the producer of the musical performance.

Charming in conception and sober in execution, Roman Signer's drawings beg to be expanded upon by the viewer's imagination. They offer construction guides and stage directions for the sculptures--works with titles like "After Observations of the Wind," "Volcano," and "Waiting for the Fall"--which entail often comical experiments pursued with an almost Beckett-esque sense of humorous futility.

Most artists are pleased if their work appeals to a modest proportion of the human race. However, as Roman Signer proudly notes in our monograph, his has also attracted a notable bovine the book, the year-old Swiss artist recalled how, inhe sat in a Kayak while it was dragged along a rural German road.

Swiss artist Roman Signer (b. ) makes work that is literally explosive, harnessing natural forces via rockets, fuses and dynamite, as well as rushing water, gravity and catapults. At work since the early s, Signer is a prolific artist who is highly respected worldwide/5(6).
