Taken from one of the most iconic series within this Swiss duo’s expansive oeuvre, Peter Fischli and David Weiss’s "Airport (London – Air Europe), 1988" typifies the artists’ search for the sublime in the quotidian. Focusing primarily on the infrastructures of air travel, as opposed to the glamour of jet-setting, Fischli and Weiss capture a scene that is both banal and serene. In this significant 1988 piece, trucks, planes and a single worker engage in a functional choreography. Framed by unimaginative architectures and grey skies, the large planes appear both mundane and alien, distinguished by their ability to overcome gravity.
