Celebrating the everyday.

"Questions and Flowers", a retrospective of works by contemporary artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss, is set to delight visitors to the Kunsthaus Zurich from June 6 through September 9.

The celebrated Swiss duo, who have been working together since 1979, approach their ordinary subjects--from humble sausages to glorious flowers--with wit and originality. A high point is their slapstick video, 'The Way Things go' (1985-87), which captures a chain reaction involving mundane objects such as rubber tires, balloons and buckets propelled by a sequence of carefully orchestrated but seemingly spontaneous collisions and explosions into riotous fun.
