Abstract [en]

Dorothea Tanning is primarily known as a painter but during an intensive period around 1970 she created nearly twenty cloth sculptures. These peculiar objects, made out of fabric, stuffing, lace, velvet, fake fur, etc., animates the exhibition space and sets an intricate play between bodies. As such they may be seen as physical concretizations of motives found in Tanning's paintings. The essay departs from these cloth sculptures in order to discuss two key themes in Tanning's work, her portrayal of bodies and spaces. Moreover, Tanning's reoccurring interest in transgressions of different sorts, is set in relation to the surrealist movement's general strive to provoke and overcome boundaries. More precisely, Tanning's sculptures and installations are mirrored in avant-garde experiments with the exhibition format, and her sculptured bodies dissolute boundaries is contrasted against her male colleagues more restless zeal to override taboos through an aggressive use of the female body.
