Calder: Nonspace takes its title from a 1963 essay by American novelist James Jones, written after his encounter with a series of large-scale sculptures at Alexander Calder’s studio in Saché, France. This catalogue explores this angle on Calder’s monumental vision by documenting an installation of more than 30 stabiles and standing mobiles, at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles.30 stabiles, mobiles and standing mobiles are woven through a specially designed environment created by New York architectural designer Stephanie Goto (whose projects include the New York restaurant Piora and the apartment of chef Daniel Boulud), along with five large-scale works set outdoors. Goto also contributes an essay that explores the transformation of a classical gallery into a unified experience, and an essay by Andrew Berardini looks at the moments in Calder’s work where space is transformed by art.
