Claus Oldenburg, one of the giants of pop art was the subject of an acclaimed retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. He is famous for making oversized replicas of everyday objects, i.e., a giant hamburger and a lipstick tube the size of a tree. This film illustrates his collaboration with his wife, Coosje van Bruggen, as they create a number of large-scale sculptures for public spaces, including some carried out in collaboration with American architect Frank Gehry. The film shows various works from conception to installation, including 'Spoonbridge and Cherry' in Minneapolis, 'Dropped Bowl with Scattered Slices and Peels' in Miami, 'Knifeship' at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, and 'Binocular Building' in Venice, California. Theirs was an intimate collaboration of minds and artistic input; he was reserved and quietly driven, she energetic and outspoken.
