A multiple by Gianni Colombo, pioneer in kinetic art, Arte Programmata and Op Art. This is a kinetic light object as the light shining through the structure plays a central role. Squares light up systematically when the cylinder spins on its axis. A small, but significant piece of art history made of bakelite.
This particular item came from the estate of Frans Haks, the former director of the Groninger Museum, which held a focus on kinetic and programmed art.
The multiple is in an excellent condition for its age. It is signed and dated (1972) on the top
