Description:
César (French, 1921-1998) Compression of Silverware 1975 signed and dated 1975 compressed silverware 81 by 70 by 21.5 cm. 31 7/8 by 27 9/16 by 8 7/16 in. Footnotes This work is registered in the Archives Denyse Durand-Ruel, Paris, under no. 7913. Provenance Private Collection, Copenhagen Made respectively from compressed cans and silverware, Compression (1969) and Compression of Silverware (1975) are distinguished examples of what is arguably César's most influential body of work. An inexhaustible source of experimentation for the artist, his Compressions encompass some of the most radical and emblematic explorations in sculpture to come out of Post-War France. In 1960, César witnessed the installation of an outsized hydraulic press at the Société Française des Ferrailles (French Scrap Iron Company) in Gennevilliers, compelling him to investigate the process of mechanical compression. César initially made attempts with plaques, copper pipes and tin cans, and in May 1960, he exhibited his first Compressions which immediately earned him critical and popular acclaim. That same year, he joined the Nouveau Réalisme movement founded by Pierre Restany and started the Compressions Dirigées (Directed Compressions), for which he carefully chose constituents and their layout in the press to obtain previously unattainable density. A testament to the pivotal nature and importance of the series, César never tired of exploring the process's infinite creative potential and he continued to work on his Compressions until his death in 1998. By re-contextualising everyday objects and rendering them illegible, César shifts focus away from the ordinary and creates something entirely novel. An imposing amalgamation of cutlery, Compression of Silverware (Lot 16) toys with the notion of functionality: by drastically altering the attributes of mundane commodities, César compels the viewer to re-evaluate preconceived understandings of domesticity and beauty. An exquisite and historical work, Compression (Lot 17) blends antique values of aesthetic harmony - as demonstrated by the interaction of gold and turquoise, colours used for the regalia of Pharaohs in ancient Egypt - with modern inspiration from the post-industrial era. A compression of metal cans, such as the ones used as oil drums (a common possession for any car owner in the 1960s), Compression's pearlescent and reflective surface, crushed in a flurry of folds and wrinkles, draws the viewer in. The Centre Pompidou held a major retrospective of César's oeuvre in 2018, on the 20th anniversary of his death, which featured César's Compressions in a large dedicated space as the foundation of the exhibition. In addition to the Centre Pompidou, César's works are held in other leading museums such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Tate Modern in London amongst many others.
