Comprising more than 250 pieces. This exhibition encompasses Klippel’s development from figurative sculpture into abstraction, from Surrealist woodcarvings to the extraordinary junk assemblages of the 1960’s and 1990’s. It also reflects the diversity of Klippel’s artistic output, both in his choice of materials (stone, wooden pattern parts, plastic toy kits, industrial piping, machine parts, bronze, photography and collage to name but a few) and his enormous scale (from the intimate to the monumental).To accompany the exhibition is a full colour and beautifully designed monograph with full colour reproductions of the exhibited works alongside a comprehensive discussion of Klippel’s life and work. The hardcover edition also comes CD ROM catalogue raisonné, which provides detailed information on more than 1,200 of Klippel’s sculptures.
