Summary of Suzuki (Hiroshima)
Jean Tinguely arrived in Tokyo in February 1963 to put together for an exhibition at the Minami Gallery, which he did. His usual practise was to build his sculptures on site in Japan for the exhibition, making use of area components. That region is referenced in the components of his creating that make use of it.
All About Suzuki (Hiroshima)
His sculptures had been assembled at the gallery immediately after he went by way of Tokyo’s trash to locate elements for them. Ikebanas have been stabilised, he wrote to his pal Pontus Hulten. New sculptures ended up dubbed “Casoar,” “Zing-Zing,” “Honda,” and “Suzuki” by the artist.
The “Balubas” and other outlandish sculptures of earlier many years have provided way to these extra subdued machines. In spite of this, a big, violent eruption seems to be just about the corner.
Tinguely demonstrates his position as “Homo Ludens” by incorporating Japanese influences into his works in Tokyo and connecting them with machines and technology. Japanese avant-garde musician Toshi Ichiyanagi’s “Tinguely-Seem” composition was highlighted on an accompanying album provided in the show’s catalogue.
