Alain Kirili - Improvisations
Publication documenting a public commission of the sculptor for the campus of the University of Burgundy in Dijon.
Alain Kirili (1946-2021) was a French American sculptor of verticality and modeling. His work emphasizes an "aesthetics of spontaneity" and seeks its formal unity through the variety of materials he employs in a quest for "organic simplicity." He has worked on the monumental aspects of sculpture in public spaces.
