L´Oiseau dans l´espace Remake (Brancusi), 2008 – Darya von Berner . Sculpture: Recycled plastic and wood.

L’Oiseau dans l’espace, or Not, is a replica of the original, wrapped in crocheted recycled plastic.

L’Oiseau dans l’espace, is a series of sculptures by Constantin Brancusi. In 1927 it became the centre of a heated legal debate, redefining the meaning of art. The lawyers had to decide whether it was an ‘original sculpture’ or a metal article. It was not clear whether the ‘Bird’ could be called art, because it looked like nothing anyone had ever seen before.

L´Homme qui marche or Not, 2010 – Darya von Berner. Sculpture. Iron and cassette tape

L’homme qui marche, or Not, is a replica of the original, wrapped in crocheted cassette tape.

In the opinion of art historians, L’homme qui marche is one of the most important works by Giacometti. It is one of the most important works of 20th century Swiss art. With this work Giacometti turned to naturalism once more, which in 1935 eventually led to his expulsion from the Parisian Surrealists.
