Urs Fischer & Georg Herold: Necrophonia
Text by Barnett Newman; copublished with The Modern Institute/Toby Webster

Necrophonia documents a 2011 collaborative exhibition by Urs Fischer and Georg Herold at The Modern Institute in Glasgow. Transforming the gallery into a studio, the artists created figurative sculptures based on poses performed by models from a nearby art school. For the duration of the exhibition, the resulting sculptures--made of unfired clay, so that they disintegrated over time--were exhibited alongside the live nude models from which they were derived, activating the exhibition space with a charged human presence and juxtaposing the real and its representation.
