Urs Fischer: Sōtatsu at Gagosian Madison Avenue, New York

“Art is open—it can go on endlessly.”
—Urs Fischer

The video shows the exhibition “Sōtatsu,” a new painting in nine parts by Urs Fischer, on show at Gagosian, Madison Avenue, New York. In this work, which is installed in successive panels along the walls of a single room, Fischer explores the ways that space can be divided, stretched, opened, and closed—creating a panorama that is as continuous as it is fragmented. Inspired by the hand scrolls and painted screens of early seventeenth-century Japanese artist Tawaraya Sōtatsu, Fischer’s interior landscape uses negative space, light, and repetition to evoke time and movement: http://on.gagosian.com/yd12Uoy
