About the artwork

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is a modern art museum situated on Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side of New York. Opened in 21/10/1959, this museum?s collections are exclusively dedicated to non-figurative art. Designed as a shell to house modern art, the interior and exterior architecture of the building is revolutionary. The museum space has a helix structure where the visitor reaches the top first of all, then progressively descends until the ground level by a slightly inclined ramp: the exhibition room notion disappears therefore in favour of the continuity of presentation. This helix structure is found on the outside façade. Dequick pays tribute to this unusual museum conception with his photographic processing dedicated to the Guggenheim. He takes several photos that he superimposes. The iconographic repetition of the helix structure lends movement to the ensemble. The building seems to soar into the air in a vortex.
