Fischerspooner at the mumok
When Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner created their art, music and performance project Fischerspooner in New York in 1998, they had one mission: To make the tight-lipped, elitist art scene more open and accessible. Their first, opulent performances were celebrated right off the bat. With their song "Emerge", released in 2000, Fischerspooner also landed an international club hit.
Fischerspooner now present their dazzling, queer universe at the mumok under the title "Sir". A series of photos produced by Yuki James forms the basis of the spatial installation specially created for the exhibition. At the center of the photo series, Casey Spooner is accompanied by various friends, acquaintances, some anonymous men (recruited on the internet), who had themselves photographs in various character settings in Spooner's former apartment in New York: The pallet ranges from leather-and-chain bondage to markedly male nudity. The use of a private setting as a stage for self-presentation throws up questions about the demarcation between private and public space.
The spatial installation deals with an artistic continuation of Fischerspooner's fourth album project. The work entitled "Sir", set for release in autumn 2017, was produced by Michael Stipe (R.E.M.).
