THE INVENTION OF BLUE


THE INVENTION OF BLUE



Work in progress

The work and writings of Yves Klein serve as the point of departure for interwoven reflections around the Mediterranean: an older man reminisces about his lifelong search for happiness, a figure inspired by Somerset Maugham’s “The Lotus Eater” haunts bourgeois holiday resorts, and a young woman travels in search of the origins of Klein’s most famous invention, the monochrome ultramarine blue.
