Exhibition

Section 7 – Eschermania

Mano con Esfera (Escher)

Pink Floyd
POn the Run (1987)
Vinilo, LP pirata, 31x31 cm
Colección particular, Italia
All M.C. Escher works © 2017 The M.C. Escher
Company. All rights reserved

Escher’s art left the confines of the studio and was transformed into gift boxes, postage stamps and greeting cards; it entered the world of comics and ended up on the LP sleeves of famous bands like Pink Floyd; and his impossible structures are used to allude to paradoxical situations or to astonish people with unrealizable constructions.

Echoes of engravings such as Relativity (or House of Stairs) are to be found in the whirling stairs which lead Mickey Mouse and the Simpsons to get lost in an Escher-like world. Escherian settings have been used in commercials like the one for Audi in 2007, based on the famous print Waterfall. Hand with Reflecting Sphere, Other World and Belvedere were used by Illy Caffè for a 2006 advertising. A scene in the fantasy film Labyrinth (1986), starring David Bowie and produced by George Lucas, is built around House of Stairs. Even the famous staircases at Hogwarts, in the Harry Potter saga, are a dynamic transposition of this work, which also inspired one of the most striking scenes from Night at the Museum 3.
