A crab eats a beetle, crows are trapped in a cage, caribou gallop next to floating trees, a carpet is burning on the floor, a dinosaur is at the end of a staircase. Christoph Fischer tells of such and countless other events in his dream images. The Lucerne artist, draftsman and illustrator has been recording his nightly dreams in his sketchbook shortly after waking up for over 10 years. These sketches are implemented in large-format pencil drawings. Short texts, felt pen sketches and notes complete the book. «Christoph Fischer's dream drawings are surprising, strange and strange. Things come together that don't belong together, proportions shift, materials behave in an unusual way, time passes differently. Christoph Fischer succeeded in telling his night thoughts in this simultaneously individual and universal language of dreams.»* We are pleased to present his comprehensive work to the Fumetto audience. On 8 pages in the March issue of Lucerne's 041 culture magazine, we give those interested an insight into the work of Christoph Fischer.
