Jean TINGUELY (1925-1991) -Pandemonium ‘Dans Coupole’

Joint Technical and collages on cardboard. ‘Pandemonium’ indicates the imaginary capital of Hell where Satan invokes the demons board. This term is also used to designate a place where corruption, chaos and disorder prevail. This sophisticated drawing presents the project of “machine-sculpture” with multiple colors that begins a loud conversation with the spectator. Through his work the sculptor communicates and interacts with the viewer.
Signed, dated and titled lower center: « Jean Tinguely, 1981, Pandemonium ‘dans coupole…’ ».

Provenance: Collection Claude and Micheline Renard.


Jean Tinguely joined the movement of the New Realist in 1961, one year after its foundation. The artist is obsessed with the movement: that electrically driven machines built with metals harvested from landfills, he will create in a large number. They are spectacular sculptures. First designed in a Dadaist spirit, they will express the refusal of the new industrialized object. He creates his Meta-mechanicals and Meta-Matics with scraps. During visual and auditory experiences, he will add skulls, jaws of animals and sound, even if it sounds more like cataclysmical noises. Jean Tinguely’s works sparkles with humor, vitality, irony and poetry. However analyzed in a deeper context, they also reveal a sense of tragi-comedy of the enigma and the unfathomable. "Art is total, because it can be "made" from stone and oil, wood and iron, air and energy, gouache, canvas and situations, fantasy and obstinacy, boredom, buffoonery, anger, intelligence, glue and wire or opposition". Jean Tinguely.
