Come on a Russian Sign Language tour of Urs Fisher’s exhibition Small Axe and take part in his project YES in Garage Square.
Garage Museum of Contemporary Art invites visitors on a sign language tour of Urs Fisher’s exhibition Small Axe, organized to celebrate the first anniversary of Garage’s move to its permanent home in the building that once housed the Vremena Goda restaurant.
Occupying the Central Gallery, the installation includes more than 20 bronze hand-painted sculptures produced especially for the show. Small in scale, each captures a transient moment—from a wilted tulip in a vase to a rat playing a grand piano—populating the gallery with flights of fantasy in physical forms that provide an antidote to the austerity and grandeur of the Soviet Modernist architecture.
After the tour, visitors are welcome to take part in Urs Fisher’s largest collaborative outdoor project in his career. Each visitor can participate in the making of a landscape of clay sculptures that will metamorphose over the course of the show.
All tours are prepared by Garage's Inclusive Programs manager, Vlad Kolesnikov, in collaboration with Garage guides.
