The Sculpture Garden exhibits David Gerstein (b.1944)’s Euphoria, Jaume Plensa (b.1955)’s Children’s Soul, and Rotraut Klein-Moquay (b.1938)’s Gitane.
David Gerstein is known for his depictions of the themes of simple life with a witty, yet restrained, humor.
Like its title meaning “happiness” and “joy,” Euphoria expresses the bright and positive energy in the scenes of contemporary life.
Children’s Soul featuring Jaume Plensa’s signature “crouching human” has an opening in the lower part.
This reflects the artist’s intention to put life into the sculpture through the participation of viewers, who are invited to freely take photographs or take a break inside the opening.
Rotraut Klein-Moquay, the wife of Yves Klein, is famous for being the muse of the artist. Her work, Gitane, which means “gypsy” in French, presents a dancing gypsy figure in harmony with nature.
