Peter Fischli David Weiss
As part of the PASSAGEN, the supporting programme of the International Furniture Fair in Cologne, at the beginning of the year Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers present a new edition of the exhibition “Mondi Possibili”.
On display will be works by artists such as Benjamin Bergmann, Thomas Demand, Thea Djordjadze, Peter Fischli/David Weiss, Thomas Grünfeld, Stefan Kern, Frances Scholz, Andreas Schulze, Franz West, and Martin Wöhrl.
This exhibition series is intended to be continued in the coming years. The first exhibition titled “Mondi Possibili”, presenting furniture and objects created by artists, already dates back several years. Already in 1989 Monika Sprüth presented in her space on Maria-Hilf-Strasse furniture-like objects by, among others, Tony Cragg, Peter Fischli/David Weiss, Katharina Fritsch, and Louise Lawler.
The works on display deal with the subject of furniture from a variety of angles: as citation, as homage, as adaptation, or as copy. Others are usable objects that hardly differ from their reference objects in the domain of design or furniture.
