Summary "In 1969, sculptor Jean Tinguely began an amazing artistic adventure with his wife, artist Niki de Saint Phalle. With help from a group of their artist friends, the pair started construction of the Cyclop in a park on the outskirts of Paris. The Cyclop is a monumental sculpture made of twisted metal, mirrors, stairways, footbridges, fountains, and a gigantic eye in the middle of the "forehead." Inside, an installation of noisy gears, unique gadgets, and riotous machines crafted by such artists as Jean-Pierre Raynaud, Eva Aeppli, and Larry Rivers delights astonished visitors. Twenty years in the making, the Cyclop created an enchanting world where visitors can explore and interact with the work of several artistic giants of the 20th century. Artists Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely embraced the Nouveau Realisme movement of the 1960s, which appropriated ordinary materials and objects from the everyday world and recast them as art. Nearly forgotten until filmmakers Louise Faure and Anne Julien rediscovered it for Monster in the Forest, Tinguely's Cyclop remains a shining example of Nouveau Realisme, and a monument to his "anti-museum" views about art"--Container.
