Urs Fischer

9:40 PM

Not sure where to begin with this exhibit...it was definitely out there!
Prior to going to see the exhibit, I had actually never heard of Urs Fisher. My friend posted up a video about his work and I just had to check it out.

We first went to his exhibit at the MOCA on Grand Ave.
As soon as you step inside you can't miss the massive holes on the walls. How did he do that!? The video I watched before going to the exhibit explained that the holes in the wall, should make the viewer feel as if a giant came in and punched them. It certainly felt that way. After seeing that you just feel the urge to go deeper in to find out what destruction that giant made or has uncovered. It's like falling down the rabbit hole. The deeper you go in, the odder it gets.
Bread houses? frozen rain? melting light posts? creepy skeletons?...yep it was def a trip. It was nice to escape the real world for a bit.

After the exhibit on Grand, we walked over to little Tokyo and checked out his other exhibit. Outside you come upon this huge sign that reads "with the help of 1,500 people from LA." Yeah sure 1,500 people not a big deal....this doesn't really hit you until you're inside.

I don't think I had ever seen nor will I ever see so much clay again in my life. It's truly something amazing to behold. All over the place, there were rows and rows of clay figures. On the stairs, railings and walls there sat grotesque creatures, animals, mundane objects, people, abstract figures  etc..I think I saw it all!
Not one clay figure was perfect and some were cracking away, which made them even more striking to look at. It was as if theses pieces had been disintegrating there for years.
