Louisiana anniversary poster with the work, Anteater - Anteater, (1963), by Alexander Calder (1898-1976). Calder's three iconic sculptures in total have been permanent fixtures in Louisiana's sculpture park since 1976, and the view of the Øresund from the Calder terrace has since become an integral part of a visit to Louisiana. The poster is a reprint in connection with Louisiana's 60th anniversary in 2018.
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 by which the movement is bound.
Many have tried to describe the playful grace of the Calder sculptures. The French philosopher, Jean Paul Sartre thus:
An object by 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.
The poster is a reprint of the poster from Louisiana's Alexander Calder exhibition in 1995-96.
