Roman Signer by Roland Waspe
Book DescriptionOne of the most acclaimed European artists today, Roman Signer has created a vast and enigmatic oeuvre marked by his use of a diverse array of materials, including water, sand, explosives, and vehicles. "Roman Signer: Vernissage" celebrates the seventieth birthday of this extraordinary artist through an exploration of the cards used to promote Signer's exhibitions.This vibrantly illustrated volume features a selection of cards and advertisements for 150 Roman Signer exhibitions since 1973. Each card reflects the artistic sensibilities of its era, and together the cards form a miniature historical narrative of contemporary art. Also included in "Roman Signer: Vernissage" are photographs, Signer's sketches for potential projects, and film stills from past projects. Essayist Roland Waspe expands upon the visual narrative with his examination of the development of and dominant subject topics in Signer's work, and how the invitation cards and materials reflect his aesthetic ideals.An intriguing examination of contemporary art, "Roman Signer: Vernissage" will be an essential volume for art lovers and graphic designers alike.
