THE FOUR ELEMENTS, 1961
Narrator: Alexander Calder graduated in engineering but decided to be an artist when studying the stars while on a boat journey. ”The Four Elements” rotate and billow as they move. Which of the four sculptures that represent air, water, earth and fire is for the beholder to decide. A miniature model of ”The Four Elements” was made already in 1939, but a full-scale version was not built and installed on Skeppsholmen until 1961, in time for the opening of the legendary exhibition ”Movement in Art”.
