The world put on paper

In his work, an interest in the downtrodden and the underprivileged serves as a leitmotif. With works of reportage, such as “Chicago Westside” (2011) about an impoverished district and “On the Long Bench” (2012) about Bahnhofsplatz Lucerne, he deliberately draws our attention to the faces of people on the fringes of society. His sensitive no-frills portraits are loaded with stories, arousing interest and empathy. At a busy Lucerne roundabout, there stands further evidence of Christoph Fischer’s focus on such subject matter. Here, he spent years observing the street sweeper Heinz Gilli from his studio and, in 2016, created a monumental concrete sculpture for him and the residents of this neighbourhood plagued by noise.
