Roman Signer’s artworks are often only appreciated or experienced after-the-fact. His documentation of countless staged explosions and small acts of destruction reveal his so-called “action sculptures,” performed by the artist himself in the remote Swiss countryside near his home.  The Front Room presents a compilation of these short videos over the course of a weekend. 

Roman Signer was born in 1938 in Appenzell, Switzerland. He lives and works in St. Gallen, Switzerland.
