Urs Fischer’s edition for the New Museum, Chicken Rotation, is a four-part mixed-medium wall relief that plays with ideas of misalignment, subversion, and simultaneity and relates to his recent series of cartoonlike assemblages. Often humorous and shocking, Fischer’s works underscore the notions of impermanence, metamorphosis, and change through the artist’s particular attention to materials and their transformation over time. His large-scale installations, sculptures, and wall works have incorporated both durable and organic mediums in an alchemy of correspondences and juxtapositions that evoke the passing of time with a uniquely macabre sensibility. “I don’t care about big or small,” Fischer has insisted; instead, he revels in the “collisions of things, and how objects relate to each other.”
