Calder to Quinze


Artist and architect Arne Quinze recently completed a large-scale installation in honor of structural renovations to the MAMAC Museum in Nice, France. With its title, “Hommage à Alexander Calder,” the work is sited next to, and builds upon an existing steel sculpture of Calder’s. Quinze took inspiration from Calder in form, creating a large, arc’ed canopy with similar curving lines to its inspiration. However, he departed from the solid steel material, using his signature controlled, chaotic style, creating a mass of orange and white wooden sticks to make up the form.
