Eduardo Paolozzi, Forms on a Bow, 1949

From the Tate Gallery:

Paolozzi lived in Paris between 1947 and 1950. He was greatly influenced in this period by the early Surrealist sculptures of the Paris-based Swiss sculptor, Alberto Giacometti. Here Paolozzi has explored Giacometti’s use of open or transparent structures, and of forms that evoke memories of organic and mechanical objects. The sharp protrusions of some of the elements strung between the two ends of the ‘bow’ suggest an interest in brutal instincts. Paolozzi made a preparatory sketch for the work, which is also in the collection of the Tate Gallery.
