CLAES OLDENBURG (1929- ) An American sculptor, best known for his public art installations typically featuring very large replicas of everyday objects. Oldenburg is most famous for his monuments to absurdity, such as the enormous spoon and cherry sculpture that shades the lawn of the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis. The Swiss sculptor makes the mundane monumental, creating an ironic tension between banality and intensity. The increased scale turns inanimate objects into characters who enter a surreal dialogue with viewers and landscapes. Because he depicts objects from everyday life, his work is associated with Pop art. His works are in every major museum and are passionately collected by the most serious art collectors world-wide.
