Jean Tinguely @ the Henie Onstad Art Centre

"Movement" is the key to the art of Jean Tinguely (1925 - 1991). His art is humorous and unpredicatable in its caricature of the technological and rationalised society of the times. For the first time in Norway, this spectacular exhibition of Tinguely's art will be on display at the Henie Onstad Art Centre. I checked it out and was enamoured by the playfulness of these kinetic pieces and intrigued by his performance pieces from the 70's. He worked with the fury of a genius to produce witty performances that commented on the mechanical age of society.
