A Walk with Roman Signer or, Humor needs to be taken seriously
“Spaziergänge with Roman Signer” (Walks with Roman Signer) wants to put Swiss artist Signer as an individual at its centre – including all the biographical implications this has. This is to gain an insight into the thoughts, experiences and references that inspire Signer when working. It will also try to put Signer into a larger cultural context.
Walks through Appenzellerland with Roman Signer serve as a sort of red thread. The camera joins the artist and in conversations, we learn about what he thinks important, in his art and his origins. We also accompany Roman Signer to his exhibitions in Switzerland and to international locations, we watch him create his art.
