Alberto Đakometi, jedan od najpoznatijih skulptora 20.veka na narednim fotografijama zabeležen je u svom stvaralačkom prostoru, pariskom ateljeu gde ga je fotografisao Ernst Šajdeger (Ernst Scheidegger). Fotografije su se pojavile u knjizi, zapravo katalogu, koja je bila pripremljena u okviru izložbe organizovane pod rukovodstvom Majkla Pepiata.
Michael Peppiat explores this scenery, that seemed to be as he explains both Giacometti’s most important artwork, including countless complete or unfinished works, and the archive of years of struggle. His death converted it in his greatest achievement, containing as it did the traces of a lifetime´s search for truth.
At first, the artist work there as a member of the Surrealist movement and then he gradually made his mark on Paris artistic, literary and intellectual worlds. After an enforced wartime exile in Geneva, he returned to his studio in Paris and he struggled to realize his pared-down vision of civilization.
Strewn with plaster, sculpting tools, canvases and paint brushes, the studio of Giacometti was an artistic and intellectual center during an era when Paris was the cultural capital of Europe and a magnet for many of the greatest artists and writers of the time. For some of them – André Breton, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Paul Sartre, Genet, Antonin Artaud, Marlene Dietrich and Samuel Beckett – Giacometti created the set design of the Théatre de l´Odéon´s 1961 production of Beckett´s “Waiting for Godot“. *
