Stock Description

Introduction by Christoph Eggenberger. Texts by Bice Curiger, Jaqueline Burckhardt, Isabel Schulz and Werner Hofmann among others. Swiss artist Meret Oppenheim remained for a long time in the shadow of the surrealists who were her friends. When, in 1936, she made the "fur teacup", however, she created an icon of twentieth-century art. The fame she gained for her "fur teacup"as well as Man Ray's photographs of her from the 1930s caused her to become an icon herself. In this beautiful and thorough retrospective of her work, Oppenheim's geometric and organic sculptures, drawings, collages and objects merit attention beyond the confines of surrealism, addressing themes such as the role of women as artists and the individual in relation to Nature.
