Peter Fischli in Alexander Calder's shoes

A Calder mobile after Peter Fischli and David Weiss' Equilibres

In a review of past exhibitions, the
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum explained that Peter Fischli and David Weiss have been collaborating since 1979 on a body of work that humorously celebrates the sheer banality of everyday existence. As contemporary flaneurs, they observe their world with bemused detachment, reveling in the mundane and turning every undertaking into a leisure activity…

In a Press Release of the artists most current work, it is a reminder that Art has exhausted itself to a mundane refection of Marcel Duchamp's curse.

When artist incorporate a shoe in their work, three meaning come to mind, sex, money and brand in the order of a stiletto heel, a brogue shoe or an artistic canvas sneaker.
