90 cm (approx. each puppet)
Untitled by Peter Fischli and David Weiss presents the artists’ avatars, Rat and Bear, sleeping soundly upon piled up blankets and acting as stand-ins for their creators. The practically life size rag puppets and blankets bring the installation into the realm of the domestic, though in a theatrical blown-up manner. With their creation the artist duo propose a transformation to the commonplace, reviewing everyday banality and attempting a reversal of values and hierarchies.
