Bodys Isek Kingelez


Composed of paper, commercial packaging and the stuff of everyday life, Bodys Isek Kingelez’s ‘extreme maquettes’ transform these materials into fantastic visions that encompass civic buildings, public monuments and private pavilions. Published to accompany the first retrospective of his work, this book traces the span of Kingelez’s career, from early single structure works included in Centre Pompidou’s landmark 1989 exhibition, Magiciens de la terre , to the complex and multifaceted cities he made in the 2000s, bringing his rarely seen, distinctive oeuvre to American audiences.

Featuring new photography of his work, this is the most comprehensive volume on the artist to date.
