Nature, Double-Exposed

The play between seriousness and levity lies at the heart of many works by the Swiss artist duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss (*1952, Zurich; 1946–2012, Zurich, Switzerland), as in the case of the 1997–1998 series Flowers, Mushrooms. Over the course of a year, Fischli / Weiss photographed berries, flowers, and weeds in double exposure, deciding on the spot which subject to photograph on top of the ther. The results – which the artists could never entirely control – are dreamlike images of chromatic intensity. They allude to the naive beauty of nature and, at the same time, keep it at a critical distance. From the forty-part series, one photograph is available here as a large-format, signed inkjet print.
