#141 Jean Tinguely

Jean Tinguely (b. 1925, Switzerland – d. 1991)
Study for en End of the World, 1961

I did not anticipate Tinguely making my list as his kinetic sculptures do not really inspire my work. But I was not aware of the study for the end of the world. I do not even care much what the project entailed (although based on the image above it seems reasonable), I am happy with just the title.

Santiago Sierra (b. 1966, Spain)
250 cm Line Tattooed On 6 Paid People, Havana, Cuba, 1999

Tino Sehgal (b. 1976, UK)
Various

I’m still to experience his actual works, but according to descriptions available – of works themselves as well as their very dematerialised framing and documentation – this is something that highly appeals to me.

Situations generative of meaning and experience rather than of stale documentation…
