An illu­ma­ting stu­dy of the Swiss artist’s explo­si­ve work. Swiss artist Roman Signer (born 1938) 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 1970s, Signer is a pro­li­fic artist who is high­ly respec­ted worldwide.

He com­bi­nes unor­tho­dox sculp­tu­re mate­ri­als (bal­loons, bicy­cles, dyna­mi­te) with ele­men­tal forces (pres­su­re, gra­vi­ty, fire) to make work that is, at times, liter­al­ly explo­si­ve. A pro­li­fic artist, at work sin­ce the ear­ly 1970s, Signer builds on the tra­di­ti­ons of Mini­ma­lism, Vien­nese Aktio­nism and Arte Pove­ra to crea­te a visi­on that is uni­que­ly his own.

His work has been exhi­bi­ted at major venues across Euro­pe and North Ame­ri­ca, as well as at such exhi­bi­ti­ons such as Docu­men­ta 8 (1987), Skulp­tur Pro­jek­te in Muns­ter (1997) and the 48th Veni­ce Bien­na­le (1999), whe­re he rep­re­sen­ted Switz­er­land. This book is the first mono­graph to cover the who­le of Signer’s dis­tin­guis­hed care­er to date.
