With the invitation of the new Gallery Slott in Paris we will be showing our performance of the Klein Glow Sitting Ball. It has been based on the previous experiment of the Klein Glow Sitting Ball performance we held at the Studio of the photographer Mischa Nawrata in Vienna. The concept of the perfomance was developed in cooperation with Maxime Grenier and Leon Milo we created a sound concept to go alongside the performance that was coreographed with Maria Donata D’Orso. The performance will be available for public viewing for a limited number of audience only, so if you would like to see it please register A.S.A.P
The “Klein Glow Sitting Ball” is a collection of six customized sitting balls. The products have been created in a live performance as a hommage to Yves Kleins anthropometry performances. Almost 50 years ago this is what happened “on a clear night in march at ten pm sharp, a crowd of one hundred people, all dressed in black tie attire, came to the galerie internationale d’art contemporain” in paris.” now with the invitation of Slott, CLAASSEN & PARTNER decided that this would be a perfect opportunity to have a revival of the “living paintbrushes”. With a performance of a model covered in bright pink paint who will be interacting with the “sitting balls”, by dissolving art into action and thus styling it into an artistic piece. since the “sitting ball” is not only a seating device, but they can also be used in different ways to interact with the body this action makes perfect sense because it also leaves a trace of the interaction with the body. the concept of the the “klein glow sitting ball” is influenced by yves klein and the conception of anthropometries, the use of “living paintbrushes”. a trace of this act has been left on the sitting balls as a permanent memory on the “klein glow sitting balls” leaving an invigorating image on the “sitting ball”. there has been a performance on the opening night, as well an edition of prints of the performance performed in Vienna, presented alongside the limited edition “klein glow sitting balls” at slott.
