UGO MULAS, CIRCUS CALDER
Posted on March 4, 2014 by Editorial Staff
Merano Arte, in collaboration with Ugo Mulas Archive, presents an exhibition with a selection of 36 original images, dated between 1963 and 1964, made by Italian photographer Ugo Mulas. “Circus” is a juvenile work of the great American sculptor Alexander Calder. This amazing work was a small circus made of simple sculptures, human figures, little animals. Built with metallic thread and other recovery material, this work is performance, poetry, visual art and much more. Maybe an example of Arte Povera. Calder Circus is actually preserved at the Witheny Museum in New York. The history of Ugo Mulas and Alexander Calder, is a history of great friendship. A meeting point, an homage by Mulas to the great American sculptor. Through his lenses, Mulas gave a fundamental key of interpretation of one of XX century greatest artists. A must see.
