Peter Fischli and David Weiss have been working together since 1979. For their works they use simple everyday objects. Their humorous treatment of the various philosophical and theoretical ideas that try and find an explanation for our world is a theme that runs through all their works. By making slight alterations, artistically manipulating, or by changing the perspective, they take objects out of their normal context, enticing our thoughts to stray and see things in a different light. In their work they reflect our everyday life with its obsession for philosophizing theories and speculations.
