About

One of the most influential and pioneering artists of the twentieth century, Alexander Calder transformed the very nature of sculpture by introducing the fourth dimension of time into art. Explore the artist’s mobiles, stabiles, standing mobiles, paintings, and a monumental outdoor sculpture in this major exhibition, for our second winter season in St. Moritz.

A master of many materials and techniques, Calder created a diverse body of work that represents a career-long interest in energy and form. Pushing the boundaries of modern art with his mobiles and stabiles, Calder experimented with the concept of real-time experience. From 1953 Calder’s focus diverted to the creation of large-scale sculptures; one highlight being ‘Untitled’ (1976), a key work which can be seen outside of the St Moritz gallery, within the surroundings of the Swiss mountains. An extension of his Critter series from 1974, of which otherworldly figures adopt turbulent postures and characteristics such as multiple arms or legs, ‘Untitled’ is an exotic creature that stands over 17-feet-tall. The pieces on view reflect the artist’s direct and innovative approach to art-making, oscillating from the intimate to the grand.
