The attraction of Uli Fischer’s fragments of worn textiles lays in his interest in everyday life, trivial practices and objects. Focused on textiles “marked by life”, through their patina and their empirical history (age, material, function, etc.) his artwork archeologically reveals lost time, and distant memories of people and their affects – joy, suffering, anxiety etc, makes readable. Thus, his work deals with inevitable transformation over time, where time becomes material and corporeal. Presented objects-paintings are the result of the encounter of a past and present within the field of contemporary textile art. Trough the artistic process of the realization, Fischer enters into a dialogue with the time flow, fabric properties and uses, as well as the choice and multiple combinations of materials, to capture elusive nature of human, hence material existence.
