the “klein glow sitting ball” is a collection of six customized sitting balls. the products are 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 and 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.
