Catalogue Note

"A 'mobile', one might say is a little private celebration, an object defined by its movement and having no other existence... They are, that is all; they are absolutes. There is more of the unpredictable about them than in any other human creation." Jean-Paul Sartre, 'Les Mobiles de Calder', in: Exhibition Catalogue, Paris, Galerie Louis Carré, Alexander Calder: Mobiles, Stabiles, Constellations, 1946, n.p.
