    • Meret Oppenheim, Object:
    • Luncheon in Fur, 1936
    • Surrealists were fascinate by the way objects could
    • become containers of inner desires and fantasies

    • Object is so bizarre you couldn’t imagine using it;
    • functional object rendered completely dysfunctional both by artistic
    • application and by artistic context

    • Rene Magritte, The Treachery of Images, 1928
    • Object lessons are vessels of truth. We depend on these to be truthful. This is not a pipe? The whole foundation of the
    • relationship between words and objects is destroyed. Thie image forces us to
    • reconcile this relationship, and throws the truthfulness of the relationship
    • into instability. This reflects
    • the time period where people were exploring the unconscious and reality and our
    • perception of reality. It is
    • interesting to think that without language, this work would be meaningless

    • Alberto
    • Giacometti, Suspended Ball, 1930-31
    • Mixing of categories. The formless- the process of undoing form and category.
    • Two shapes propped on bed-like surface in cage. Ball and phallic crescent moon with
    • ball suspended above it in infinite caress to the point that a crevasse is
    • wedged into the ball. Ball is female and masculine in that it mimics female
    • genitalia but it is mounted onto of the ball. Phallic crescent is passive recipient of ball’s crevass, and also somewhat
    • mimics female vulvar shape. Shows a disobeying of boundaries,
    • undoes the stability of the masculine and feminine roles.
  22. Image Upload
    • Man Ray, Minotaur, 1934

    • Shows a doubling of a man and beast which is created by
    • an androgynous figure (actual model is woman). Also has headless form, and headless (acephale) is a
    • category/example of the formless
