It’s ALIVE!!! (Part IV: Assemblage)
Part IV of our fantasical-like journey through the work of Peter Fischli and David Weiss brings us to the sausage photographs. This series consists of a variety of scenes composed of things one might find in or around the fridge; sausages, cigarette butts, cardboard, etc. The photographs not only share a sensibility of materials, but also a playful attitude towards narrative and a healthy disregard for scale normalcy.
While Fischli and Weiss miniaturize, I attempt to gigantify. That’s right, gigantify (read: embiggen). Using only what’s lying around the house, I give you my assemblage, House Monster.
