Giacometti’s Striding Man, Standing Woman Move Indoors

TMoCA Director Ali-Mohammad Zare’: It was a very sensitive task to move the statues from their original spots and bring them inside the museum, but … if they had remained where they were, they would have been damaged beyond repair

Giacometti’s Striding Man, Standing Woman Move Indoors

Two renowned cast bronze sculptures created by Swiss sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti (1901-66) were moved from the courtyards surrounding Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art to the indoor section of the museum.
The two slender sculptures ‘Striding Man’ and ‘Standing Woman,’ were moved inside the museum after 40 years of exposure to the elements, ISNA reported.
To avoid further acid rains and other factors detrimental to the sculptures, they were installed inside TMoCA under the supervision of specialists from Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti (a French public utility institute).
The installment ceremony was attended by the head of TMoCA Ali-Mohammad Zare’; Oliver Wick, Swiss art historian and former curator of Beyeler Foundation in Basel, Switzerland; Hans-Peter Marty, a notable restoration expert for Giacometti’s works; and Swiss Ambassador to Iran Markus Leitner.
