The point of departure for the project is the new 6 meter-high sculpture Ellsworth Kelly has created for the Fondation Beyeler, which was recently installed in its grounds. The angularity of “White Curves,” 2001, which is made of white aluminum, carries on from the first freestanding folded sculptures Kelly did from 1959 onwards. With its asymmetric form and strongly reflective surface, it interacts closely with nature and with the other outdoor sculpture already installed at the Fondation Beyeler, Alexander Calder’s “The Tree.”
