Jean Tinguely

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Jean Tinguely was a Swiss sculptor and painter who was most well known for his creations of kinetic art, known technically as meta-mechanics, in the grand Dada tradition. Jean Tinguely’s basic purpose for his art is to lampoon the unconscious over-creation of material items in modern industry. Jean Tinguely’s best known work was Homage to New York, which he designed to destroy itself.
 
« To me art is a form of manifest revolt, total and complete. »
Jean Tinguely
However, it did not completely self-destruct in its exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. A later work,Study for an End of the World No. 2, was successful in its self-destruction when shown for an audience in the desert near Las Vegas.
 
« One has complexes. One has the art complex. One goes to the School of Fine Arts and catches the complexes. »
Jean Tinguely


Some of his more well known public works include Chaos I, in Columbus Indiana; the Tinguely Fountain in Basel; the Jo Siffert Fountain in Fribourg, Switzerland; La Cascade, a sculpture in Charlotte, North Carolina; and a number of other metamatic generative sculptures made in the 1950s. (Artist website)

What is Performance Art?

What is Performance Art?

Performance presented within the context of fine art that is traditionally interdisciplinary. It may be scripted or unscripted, random or orchestrated carefully; spontaneous or may carefully be planned without the participation of the audience. Performance can be through the media or live and the artist performing can either be present or not. The situation can involve the four basic elements: space, performer's body/his presence through a medium, time and performer-audience relationship. Artwork constitutes actions of a group or an individual at a particular time and space.
