First ever sound-edition by famous Swiss sculptor and conceptual artist Roman Signer (b.1938). Recorded 1982 in the River Steinach, St. Gallen, Switzerland. One-sided LP, transparent Vinyl. Edition of 300 copies.
Over the past three decades, the Swiss artist Roman Signer has exhibited his work in hundreds of solo and group exhibitions and public performances around the world. For Signer, each work is an event, an experiment in which a force such as wind, water, gravity or fire transforms everyday things like umbrellas and plastic bags.Ã‚Â In all of his work, Signer proposes new relationships between ordinary objects and elements brought together in extraordinary ways. Born in Appenzell, Switzerland, Signer started his career as an artist later in life at the age of 28, after working as an architectÃ¢Â€Â™s draughtsman, a radio engineer apprentice, and a short stint in a pressure cooker factory. His work has grown out of, and has affinities with both land art and performance art, but they are not typically representative of either category.
