For the show titled Four Rooms, One Artist, the Swiss artist has created a series of new works, installations and videos. On display are Piano (2010), a grand piano that is filled with table tennis balls. Two oscillating fans cause the balls to dance on the chords, creating ambient music. The second room presents Cinema (2010). The installation consists of rows of wooden chairs and a projected film that shows clips of experiments that were never constituted into artworks and shots of places or events that are of particular interest to Signer. In the back of the room, one chair mysteriously rocks back and forth. In the third room, three video projections of recent actions are shown: Shirt (2010); Two Umbrellas (2009); and Office Chair (2010). The fourth and last room hosts the installation Waiting for Harold Edgerton (2010).
The exhibition has been curated by Gianni Jetzer and runs through November 12, 2010. The above video shows impressions of the opening reception.
