Images of Franz West, Blue

  • Two light blue curved structures made of a rough material stand on spindly legs in a gallery.
  • This is a picture of a light blue, papery sculpture in an s-shape, large enough that you could walk into its interior. Thin legs hold it up so it does not touch the floor, and there is a cord hung from above, suggesting something is suspended inside of it.

  1. Long This is a light blue, papery sculpture created in an S-shape. It looks as if you could walk into it. It is propped on small, thin legs, giving it a light, floating quality. You can see underneath that there is another form inside. A cord is being dropped into the center from above, implying there may also be a suspended object of some kind inside.
