When major artists make public appearances, they may well encounter British artist Ryan James who asks stellar art world figures to create a work for him on the spot (both Jeff Koons and Paul McCarthy have happily made personal pieces of art for the canny collector). James has been on the lookout for other artists, recently meeting Peter Fischli of the Swiss duo Fischli & Weiss at the Kunsthalle Bern. "Peter drew on two brown eggs and signed the egg carton. The eggs are in my fridge, I have to figure out how to preserve them or drain the yolks out. I never thought part of my art collection would reside in my fridge. A couple of collectors have enquired about purchasing them, but I won't sell," quips James.
