Alexander Calder,
Calder: Nonspace
@ Hauser & Wirth

One of the most
influential artists
of the twentieth
century, Calder
transformed the
very nature of
sculpture with his
invention of the
mobile, introducing
the fourth dimension
of time and the
actuality of real-time
experience into the
realm of sculpture.

‘Calder: Nonspace’:
Takes its title from
a 1963 essay by
American novelist
James Jones — 
presenting primarily
abstract sculptures
that create volumes
out of voids. 

Calder is willing to
believe equally in a
nonspace as well as
in space. Because of
this, his stabiles
(and his mobiles as
well) are able to fill
a given space without
occupying it…
