Robert Rauschenberg: Gluts - Peggy Guggenheim Venice
The "Gluts", works that Rauschemberg meant as expressions of glut, excess, surplus of supply, are some ofrty sculptures created by the artist intermittently from 1986 to 1995. He began the series in the 1980s, when he turned toward an exploration of the visual properties of metal. Assembling found metal objects such as gasstation signs, deteriorated automotive and industrial parts littering the landscape, he transformed the scrap-metal dertus into wall reliefs and freestanding sculptures that recalled his earlier combines.
