Kunstgiesserei St.Gallen: Subodh Gupta

















"Jeff The Koons, 2009
Aluminum, 51 × 33 × 49 cm

The painted cardboard boxes cast in aluminum were produced based on a used, somewhat damaged example of the original packaging of Jeff Koons' sculpture Puppy. The attention of viewers is drawn to the packaging material and the lettering on it, and grant it the same significance as its contents."











"Black and White, 2009
Polyurethane foam laminated with epoxy laminate and glass fiber , ca. 130 cm diameter

In Indian religions, the right-facing swastika symbol stands for sunrise, day, wellbeing and life. It is contrasted by the left-facing sauwastika, which represents sunset, decline of life, night, misery and death. Subodh Gupta had two ceiling fans in the form of the swastika and the sauwastika produced. The blades were each milled on the milling machine in polyurethane foam, laminated with epoxy laminate and glass fiber, sanded, and sprayed in black and in white.

The mounts for the fans were produced in steel in the metal flow forming technique."













"Egg Tray, 2010
Hammered chrome steel, 140 × 210 × 300 cm

The Indian artist Subodh Gupta’s model of an egg carton, enlarged approximately tenfold, was created in hammered chrome steel in our specialized partner workshop in China. In the exhibition at Nature Morte in New Delhi in 2010/2011, Gupta presented the work along with eggs made from pots and tins."













"Sheet, 2010
Hammered chrome steel, 270 × 135 cm

The Indian artist Subodh Gupta had several objects that he had collected at various flea markets over the years enlarged by a factor of approximately ten. In a workshop in the southeast of China that cooperates with us, a perforated sheet and a gas-powered kettle were also created in hammered chrome steel. A brass button was produced in bronze in our branch in Shanghai. All the objects were then finally patinated to look old. The Hauser & Wirth gallery in New York presented all of the objects together in a solo-exhibition in 2011."
