Audrey Jeanroy, Yves Klein, Christelle Lecoer
Artist Yves Klein (1928–1962) and architect Claude Parent (born 1923) first worked together in 1969, on Klein’s Air Architecture project; subsequent collaborations included the "Pneumatic Rocket" and the Fontaines de Varsovie project. Parent and his office produced professional architectural designs for Klein’s concepts, clarifying their utopian aspirations with exquisite delicacy. Shortly after Klein’s death at the age of 34, his widow, Rotraut Klein-Moquay, and his mother, Marie Raymond, asked Parent to create an architectural design for an Yves Klein Memorial, to be built on a small plot of land above Saint-Paul de Vence in southeastern France. This handsome volume chronicles Klein and Parent’s relationship, with reproductions of drawings, paintings and sculptures, plus archival materials and photographs.
