Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) was one of the most radical, inventive and subversive sculptors of the mid twentieth-century. A founding member of the Nouveau Réalistes, his work was playful, ironic and often anarchic. Joyous Machines: Michael Landy and Jean Tinguely at Tate Liverpool will be co-curated by renowned British artist Michael Landy who, having seen the Tate Gallery s Tinguely retrospective exhibition in 1982, has been significantly influenced by the artist and his constructive and destructive tendencies. In Break Down (2001) Landy catalogued and destroyed every single one of his possessions from his birth certificate to his car.
