Jean Tinguely, one of the greatest masters of 20th century art, is back to Italy with an exhibition promoted and hosted by the Hermann Geiger Cultural Foundation in Cecina (Livorno) under the aegis of the Embassy of Switzerland in Italy, from 27 June to 20 September 2015.
The exhibition Jean Tinguely. The Philosophers, staged by the Geiger Foundation and curated by the Art Director, Alessandro Schiavetti, presents nine kinetic sculptures created by the Swiss artist in 1988 as a homage to the thinkers who shaped and revolutionized his political thought and made him outgrow the Marxism of his youth. The sculptures Martin Heidegger, Henri Bergson, Jacob Burckhardt, Friedrich Engels, Pjotr Kropotkin, Wedekind, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Wackernagel come from the Museum Tinguely in Basel, the prestigious institution inaugurated in 1996 and entirely devoted to the Swiss artist.
Also on show will be five brightly coloured chairs made of wood, coloured glass and stones by artist Niki de Saint Phalle, who was Tinguely’s wife and collaborator as well as his source of inspiration.
