Description

In September 2008, Urs Raussmüller garnished the stone slabs and glass panes of Merz’s table in the Hallen für Neue Kunst, Schaffhausen, with approx. 650 kg of fruit and vegetables, making reference to Mario Merz’s action in the fall of 1987. Loaden with fruit, the work expresses the wait for ripeness and harvest according to its title “The Island of Fruit Waits for September”. For a short period of time the multitude of forms and colours and the increasing evidence of the perishing fruit become a symbol for the ephemeral nature of life. Informative text by Christel Sauer and colourful, large-format images.
