Luxembourg & Dayan will present at Frieze Sculpture Park a rare occasion to see a sculpture by Claes Oldenburg: Fagend Study (1975), an oversized crumpled cigarette butt made of lead, steel and polyurethane. Blurring the boundaries between art and life, creativity and waste product, Oldenburg’s piece embodies Formless’s line of interrogation, at the same time expanding the field of sculpture: “If I didn’t think what I was doing had something to do with enlarging the boundaries of art,” he once stated, “I wouldn’t go on doing it.”
