"Best known for recasting familiar objects in unfamiliar textures, media, and dimensions, Claes Oldenburg has long challenged his audience to rethink the everyday with works such as French Fries and Ketchup (1963) and Soft Toilet (1966). Oldenburg's masterful drawings reveal another facet of this pioneering artist, inviting viewers to enter his "fantasy' as they explore Oldenburg's relationship with the medium, from sensitive early explorations to veteran campaigns as a refined and accomplished draftsman." "Drawing is crucial to Oldenburg's art: drawings note the beginning of an idea; they develop the thought; they give birth to his sculptures. The medium offers a flexibility particularly suited to the artist's extraordinary visions, enhancing the effectiveness of his manipulations of scale and perspective in sculpture. Pieces such as Proposed Colossal Monument for Central Park North, N.Y.C.- Teddy Bear (1965); Various Positions of a Giant Lipstick to Replace the Fountain of Eros, Piccadilly Circus, London (1966); Proposal for a Cathedral in the Form of a Colossal Faucet, Lake Union, Seattle (1972); and Blueberry Pie a la Mode, Sliding down a Hill (1996) usher viewers into a chimerical world of the mundane made significant."--Jacket

La exposición constituye una muestra retrospectiva de la obra de Oldenburg, refleja los temas que preocupan al artista, influidos por las ideas de su esposa, Cosje van Bruggen, y permite conocer aspectos insólitos de sus métodos de trabajo, partiendo de las ideas, a través de los bocetos y los modelos pequeños y grandes hasta llegar a las esculturas acabadas, revelando el modo en que los objetos estereotipados, materia prima del repertorio de Oldenburg, sufren sorprendentes transformaciones mediante cambios radicales de escala, material y entorno, convirtiéndose en objetos nuevos que ya no poseen su significado o función original

Riesige Hamburger und Soft-Toiletten - mit verfremdeten Nachbildungen der Konsumwelt und Environments avancierte Claes Oldenburg zu einer Schlüsselfigur der Pop Art. Heute sind seine Landschaftskunst und Monumentalskulpturen moderne Denkmale, die den amerikanischen Objektkünstler weit über die Kunstszene hinaus bekannt machten. Gerald Fox begleitete Oldenburg 1995 beim Aufbau eines dieser Grossprojekte und bei der Vorbereitung seiner Anthology-Retrospektive im Guggenheim Museum. Künstler wie Roy Lichtenstein geben Einblick in die Welt eines vielseitigen Künstlers, der alltägliche Gegenstände in sinnlich-ironische Kunstwerke verwandelt. (Quelle: DVD-Hülle)
