One of the pioneers in the sixties and seventies, with his unconventional, provocative works Allen Jones (*1937 in Southampton) had a major influence on the radical change that took place in modern art. His famous Furniture Sculptures―realistic-looking female figures made of fiberglass and steel―continue to mark the artist’s sensational, spirited rejection of intellectually overburdened abstract art in favor of triviality and the reality of everyday life. The female form, especially the legs, became Jones’s favorite leitmotif, imprinted on the contemporary collective memory and declaring the passion and eroticism between man and woman as an aesthetic principle. Jones succeeded in overcoming the two-dimensional, something his entire oeuvre strives for, through the human body. This publication demonstrates that his work also always questions the lifestyle of today’s society and its penchant for mass consumption.

Book Description Hatje Cantz Verlag Gmbh Jul 2012, 2012. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Mit seinen unkonventionellen, provokativen Arbeiten prägte Allen Jones ( 1937 in Southampton) als einer der Pioniere in den 1960er- und 1970er-Jahren den Umbruch in der Modernen Kunst. Seine berühmten Furniture Sculptures zu Möbeln umfunktionierte, realistisch anmutende Frauenfiguren aus Fiberglas und Stahl markieren bis heute die Aufsehen erregende und beherzte Abkehr des Künstlers von der intellektuell überladenen, abstrakten Kunst hin zu Trivialität und Echtheit des alltäglichen Lebens. Die weibliche Gestalt, insbesondere ihre Beine, prägten sich als Jones Leit- und Lieblingsmotiv ins zeitgenössische Gedächtnis ein und deklarieren die Leidenschaft und Erotik zwischen Mann und Frau zum ästhetischen Prinzip. Mit dem menschlichen Körper gelingt Jones die Überwindung des Zweidimensionalen, nach der sein ganzes uvre strebt. Die Publikation zeigt, dass sein Werk dabei immer auch den Lifestyle und Massenkonsum der heutigen Gesellschaft hinterfragt.Ausstellungen: Kunsthalle Tübingen 16.6. 16.9.2012 UNESCO Weltkulturerbe Völklinger Hütte 12.10.2012 16.6.2013 Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz 29.6. 29.9.2013 234 pp. Deutsch.
