  • Roman Signer

    1938 born in Appenzell, CH
    lives an works in St. Gallen, CH

    Roman Signer has always seen himself as a sculptor. He even refers to actions that only last for short moments as sculpture. In these »time sculptures«, he is always concerned with problems, actions and time sequences in space. The temporal dimension of his work becomes a metaphor for change and development. Spontaneity and ephemerality can be expressed that way, while the traditional monumental character of the imagery transforms into a more comprehensive overall structure of space and time. With this innovative approach, Roman Signer has significantly contributed to a new understanding of sculpture since the 1970s.
