  • Specifications
Louisiana poster featuring the work, The Iguana (1968), by American artist, Alexander Calder, (1898-1976), from Louisiana's Calder exhibition in 1969. Since 1976, three of Calder's iconic sculptures have been permanent fixtures in the Louisiana Sculpture Park, and the view of the Sound from the Calder terrace has since become an integral part of a visit to Louisiana.

Acrobats, line dancers and the planets of the sky were a great source of inspiration for many of Calder's sculptures. What they have in common is that they are constantly in motion, and that this movement apparently takes place almost freely in space.

But invisible forces ultimately determine how they move. In his sculptures, Calder did not just want to show the movement, but also to capture it and make visible the forces that the movement is bound by.

Many have tried to describe the playful grace of the Calder sculptures. The French philosopher, Jean Paul Sartre thus:

An object of Calder is like the sea. Forever repeated, always new. One look at it is not enough. You have to live with it every day and let yourself be enchanted.
