Franz West : Man with a Ball, Hardback Book

Franz West : Man with a Ball Hardback


Belonging to the generation of artists exposed to actionist and performance art of the 1960s and '70s, Franz West made work that was vigorous and imposing yet free and lighthearted, where form and function where compatible rather than mutually exclusive.

Prepared in close collaboration with Franz West, Man With a Ball features a forest of immense and individualistic standing sculptures the size of small people, four large-scale fiberglass assemblages that suggest the patchworked manufacture of old Lockheed aircraft, and large vitrines of models, in which diminutive cardboard human figures appear together with West's own maquettes for large-scale sculptural projects, both past and future
