"すべてがうまくいったとき、モビールは人生の喜びと驚きに踊る詩の作品となる!"-アレクサンダー・カルダー

歴史

アレクサンダー・カルダーは、抽象彫刻の発展における重要人物であり、キネティック・アートにおける画期的な作品で有名で、20世紀で最も影響力のあるアーティストの一人である。マンイーターへの前奏曲」は、空気の流れに反応し、絶えず変化するダイナミックな視覚体験を生み出す、繊細なバランスのとれた立体の彫刻である。

カルダーのスタンディング・モビールは、素材、フォルム、バランスに対する彼の絶え間ない実験の結果である。ニューヨーク近代美術館の初代館長アルフレッド・バーは、1945年にカルダーに新しいスタンディング・モビールの制作を依頼した。本作品は、その依頼作品《Man-Eater With Pennant》のための形式的な習作である。マンイーターへの前奏曲》は、MoMAの彫刻と同様、複数の角度から見ることができるようにデザインされており、鑑賞者が作品の周りを歩き回り、対話することを促す。どちらの作品でも、さまざまな金属部品が中央の支柱の周りを動く。マケットと習作は、作品をスケールアップする前にスケールとバランスを理解する機会を与えるため、カルダーの実践において重要な役割を果たした。多くの場合、これらのマケットは拡大する前に何十年も小さなサイズで存在し、あるいは単にそのサイズのまま存在し、大きな作品になることはなかった。プレリュード』では、MoMAに展示された最終的な作品と比較して、カルダーがより垂直に思考しているのがわかる。

マンイーターへの前奏曲」は、カルダーの下絵にも描かれている、 モビールのためのスケッチ」にも描かれている:マンイーターへの前奏曲;ヒトデ;タコハーバード大学フォッグ美術館のパーマネント・コレクションに所蔵されている。
