Lot Essay

"Maybe it's an obvious choice, but those are the things I relate to. What if I did a Fabergé egg? Would that be better? Even if I have nothing to do with it? I just use the stuff that's around me. And those objects, those domestic objects as you call them, are made in human scale, so they can also be related to humans. They're made by humans for humans. They speak about us" (U. Fischer, quoted in M. Gioni, "This is my Grandmother she Makes Really Genius Cakes", in U. Fischer and A. Zachery (eds.), Urs Fischer: Shovel in a Hole, New York, 2009, p.63).
