Pluie bleue, (S 36)

Yves Klein

1957

Installation, 209 x 1,1 cm.
Materials: Dry pigment and synthetic resin on twelve wooden rods

Collection: Private collection.

Yves Klein first exhibited this work in May 1957. Twelve rods are suspended from the ceiling above a field of blue pigment. Like a painting with no fixed form, the work unfolds into space. Klein writes: ‘Pure pigment displayed on the floor becomes a floor painting rather than a hanging tableau.’ The colour becomes ‘As immaterial as possible. The colour itself becomes the attraction.’

Jef Verheyen selects this work for the Integratie 64 exhibition, which focuses on the synthesis between the arts.
