Urs Fischer, one of the most acclaimed living artists, is dropping a new set of NFTs next week. Pace Gallery will feature six newly minted NFTs of the artist in an online exhibition from July 21 to Aug 7.
The show, in partnership with Fair Warning auction app and digital market platform MakersPlace, will go live on Pace’s website. The NFTs are part of the Swiss artist’s NFT series titled “CHAOS,” which feature a total of 501 NFTs.
CHAOS: NFTs by Urs Fischer
Each NFT in CHAOS is made up of two distinct floating objects that are constantly colliding with each other. These NFTs are all quirky: a red Nike shoe merging with a showerhead, a fork blending with an American Express card, and what not!
Fischer sold the first NFT of the series, CHAOS #1 Human, via Fair Warning for $97,700 in April. This wacky work features an egg colliding with a lighter.
The artist, meanwhile, will drop the first 500 NFTs over the next few months. After this, Fischer will mint the 501st artwork, which will feature all 1,000 objects in the previous NFTs.
“The individual objects selected for ‘CHAOS’ are engineered, cultured, or manufactured by humans and sourced from the physical world and transformed into a 3D digital model through 3D scanning,” the project noted on its website.
The buyer of each NFT will get a reference rendering and the raw data behind the visuals. In addition, they will receive instructions on how to exhibit the artwork.
In recent months, several galleries have eagerly welcomed the crypto art craze. Furthermore, an increasing number of people have been visiting NFT gallery spaces in real-world destinations. These, for instance, include The Museum of Art & Philosophy in Hobart, Australia and the Underground Museum in Moscow, Russia.
