Yves Klein – Aerial Architecture

This multi-dimensional performance combines, lighting, sound, dance, text, judo and acrobatics, to explore the space and universe of the French artist. He conceived of his paintings as living presences not as material things with restrictive boundaries. Scientific investigation meets spiritual space and the invisible becomes visible.

“Going beyond thought is the very law of poetic expression – in the realm of imagination, infinity is the place where the imagination asserts itself as pure imagination, where it is free and alone, vanquished and victorious, proud and trembling. Then images soar upward and vanish; they rise and are shattered by their very height. Then the realism of unreality is evident.”

Gaston Bachelard
