Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) The Swiss painter and sculptor Jean Tinguely, born in 1925 in Freiburg, got renowned for his mobile, machine-like sculptures. His first free works of art are made of wire, wire-plate-compositions as well as characters from colorful sheet metal part. His abstract works reflect the elements of Kazimir Malevich, Wassily Kandinsky, and Auguste Herbin. Tinguely's cinetic sculptures are considered to be cheerful, playful and funny. In 1960 he became a member of the Artists' Association ‚Nouveaux Réalistes' (New Realists) which was founded and under the direction of Pierre Restany. In the same year Tinguely caused attention by his large machines made of scrap in the garden of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His later works are extended by the factor of light, producing numerous light sculptures.

Stockholm, Galerie Burén, Tinguely, septembre 1967, No. 13. 'MOTOR-COCKTAIL À LA ROUE'; STEEL TRAY, PLASTIC WHEEL AND TWO ELECTRIC MOTORS. 'Jean dégage une énergie électrique dès qu'il entre dans une pièce. Il remplit l'espace. Il vit dans le présent. Il voit chaque chose, dans la pièce où il se trouve, instantanément. [...] Son génie est manifesté à tout moment dans sa présence physique - ce qui n'est pas vrai de beaucoup d'artistes géniaux - et par son parler paradoxal, original, drôle et percutant. Une des grandes forces de Jean, réside dans le fait qu'il n'a jamais peur d'être ridicule. Il s'exprime sans aucun arrêt, et sans gêne, dans la vie comme dans son travail. Il est comme une de ses machines, toujours en marche.' (Niki de Saint Phalle, 'Jean', 1987, citée in Tinguely, catalogue d'exposition, Paris, Centre Georges Pompidou, décembre 1988-mars 1989, p. 358). 'Jean gives off an electric energy when he enters the rooms. He fills the space. He lives in the present. He sees everything in the room around him instantly. [...] His genius constantly manifests itself in his physical presence - which is not true of many great artists - and his paradoxical, original, amusing and striking way of speaking. One of Jean's great strengths lies in the fact that he is never afraid of being ridiculous. He expresses himself without a pause, without consideration, in life as in his work. He is like one of his machines, always on the go.' (Niki de Saint Phalle, 'Jean', 1987, quoted in Tinguely, exhibition catalogue, Paris, Georges Pompidou Centre, December 1988-March 1989, p. 358).
