Jean Tinguely

Everett Ellin Gallery

Joyous madness best describes the activities at Ellin’s Sunset Strip Gallery during this Swiss sculptor’s exhibition of electrically-activated machinery. His creations are monstrous yet tender, vulgar yet childlike; some squeal, rattle, and knock while others sing and dance. The works come to life only in motion and communicate with irrepressible urgency to even the most anti-anti-artist. In his unique way Tinguely has captured the hearts of literally hundreds of Angelenos despite themselves.
