        ITEM DESCRIPTION:
        Signed and dated 1971 on the inside page by Eduardo Paolozzi (see scans). This is the catalogue for the exhibition at the Tate Gallery, 22 September - 31 October 1971. As well as numerous pictures, catalogue also includes: Brief Chronology (One-man and important group exhibitions) & bibliography.


        FOREWORD (PAGE 5):
        Paolozzi has been one of the most volatile of twentieth century sculptors. He does not appear as a figue herocially struggling with masive and intractable materials but as a man of imagination and great curiosity; finding, colecting, experimenting, directing. His prints and sculptures, collectively and often individually, are compendia of his fantasies and his obsessions, which include science fiction monsters, toys, Mickey Mouse, Japan, robots, armaments, artificial limbs, devices for extending or testing the human frame and mind, the media in which he works. In fact all of these are closely linked in the notion of translation from medium to medium (that is, image), eg: object to photograph, photograph to half-tone, half-tone to air-brush, air-brush to etching, and so on indefinately. But an artificial limb is also a flesh and blood limb in a different medium and Mickey Mouse is a man translated into a child, a child into a mouse, a mouse into a geometric diagram, a diagram into cinematography.

        It is this intense interest in medium together with Paolozzi's life-long opposition to any established elitist, tasteful or exclusive view of art that entitles him to be regarded as one of the founders of Pop, Assemblage, Mult-Medium art, and what he calls BASH.

        The exhibition and this book, which accompanies it, equally reflect Paolozzi's fantasies and obsessions, Both are aggregations of material linked by a network of associations, metamorphoses, puns, references. Everything is transformed, but nevertheless it may remain the same. Paolozzi is not afraid of the meaning which an object may have in its own context and not afraid of direct political or art-critical comment.
