Roman Signer's installations have made him one of most renowned contemporary Swiss Artists. Rather unknown for a long time though were Signer's «Reisefotos». The artist has been creating these images for more than 35 years in parallel to his plastic work that depict involuntarily comic events, object constellations created by an invisible hand and snapshots interfere with images we know from his own work. These photos are sometimes pictorial, sometimes narrative and almost always humorous.
