ERIK DIETMAN

Erik Dietman was born in Jönköping, Sweden, in 1937. He studied at the academy of fine arts in Malmö but lived in France for most of his life; he died in Paris in 2002.

He was a member of the Fluxus movement, that asserted the intrinsic artistic quality of even the most common gesture, and claimed artistic creation should not be confined to the field of aesthetics, but be part of the flow of daily life, on behalf of an absolute conception of art.

Among the exhibits he took part in, let us mention: “Eloge de l’envie”, Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain, Nice (2001); “L’ami de personne”, a monumental sculpture at the Jardin des Tuileries, Paris (2000); “För fulla glas”, National Museum, Stockholm (1999); “Erik Dietman-Sculptor Classicus”, Musée d’Art Moderne, Saint Etienne (1997) and “Erik Dietman: Sans titre. Pas un mot. Silence”, Georges Pompidou Centre, Paris (1994).

His production is extremely vast, partly owing to his interest for in a great variety of materials and techniques; he was particularly fond of stained glass, in whose use of which he developed great skill.

Although he used traditional mediums media such as marble, stone, wood, bronze and paper, Dietman introduced themes into art that had themes never been addressed before.

Pataphysics, scatology and self-acknowledgedan awareness of the grotesque play an important role in the artist’s work, in which wordplay and double entendre meanings have always found a proper place and achieved their communicative end.
