‘water boots’ roman signer, 1986 (photo: marek rogowiec)
Roman Signer is a swiss artist living and working in the area I grew up in. A man with an impressive creative mind. I was thrilled to learn that the Swiss Institute here in New York is showing one of his movies: Restenfilm is a special screening of Roman Signer’s work. Resten translates as leftovers in German. Throughout his career, the artist has used frequently a Super-8 camera as visual sketchbook. From avalanches to small experiments in his backyard, the leftovers of Signer’s artistic life are spectacular and poetic at once. Following the screening Roman Signer will answer questions from the audience. More info here.
