Bündner Kunstmuseum Chr & Walther König, 2020
In the past few years, Roman Signer has paid more attention to his sketches and partially integrated them into exhibitions. For the first time they are the focus of an exhibition at the Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur and provide an overview of Signer’s work over the past 50 years. The sketches are a key to Roman Signer’s artistic work and reveal the core of his expanded understanding of sculpture. They show ideas for objects, actions, films and installations and document how changes can be experienced through the influence of different forces. The fleetingness of the sketches anticipates the character of his “temporary sculptures”, which are the hallmarks of this internationally acclaimed Swiss artist.
