April 2 - May 7, 2011

An installation of new sculpture by New York-based artist, R.M. Fischer. This riot of art brut-inflected work fills the gallery floors, walls, and shelves with battalions of totemic contraptions, resembling folk-art accumulations installed in the workshop of an inspired tinker. In some cases Fischer has cannibalized, recycled and re-purposed fragments of his own earlier works of art--some of which even previously functioned as working lamps--to refashion brand new sculptures. These works incorporate the everyday materials and procedures into new configurations created out of the re-assembly process and by re-combining fragments of sculptural forms with crafted elements.
