The Iguana poster by Alexander Calder


We love the late 60s techicolour vibe of this poster featuring Calder's The Iguana (1968). This is a contemporary reproduction of a poster first created by the Louisiana Museum for their Calder exhibition in 1969. 

Acrobats, dancers and the planets 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 that the movement is bound by.

Many have tried to describe the playful grace of the Calder sculptures. The French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre thus: "An object of 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."
