In 2021, we will present a major work by Otto Piene (1928 – 2014) on the esplanade of the Grimaldi Forum. The large work reminds the public of the theoretical and plastic ambition that the artist gives to our relationship with the landscape. Indeed, in the early 1960s, Otto Piene, a member of the ZERO group, began research to turn natural forces into creative elements. Berlin Star (1984) is one of his most famous sculptural achievements.
The realization of this project is made possible thanks to the collaboration of the Sprüth Magers gallery and the Otto Piene estate.
