CALDER: Tate Modern

American artist Alexander Calder’s exhibition at the TATE MODERN takes you through various phases of his work where he defines the avant-garde of modern sculpture at the beginning of the 20th century.

Starting with delicate metal wire sketches of silhouettes and faces he marks the transition between hand-drawing and sculpting. The eye follows the line and is amazed by the simplicity of the detail capturing the essence of expression.

Followed by this is his abstract work which was strongly influenced by his encounter with Piet Mondrian, one of the pioneers of geometric abstraction. He¬†explores¬†mechanical composition that is no longer static and allows the viewer to interact. This leads to his famous ‘mobiles’, delicately balanced suspensions which continuously change in motion.

The journey ends with the ‘Black Widow’, a giant suspension hanging in the space where counterweight gives an air of nonchalance that echoes the title beautifully.
