Published by Skira Paris.
Edited by Jean-Louis Andral, Claire Lilley, Jean Frémon.

Jaume Plensa (born 1955) is one of the major figures of contemporary sculpture, best known for his prodigious human figures constructed from stainless steel. Plensa is not only a sculptor, however, and this monograph explores an underappreciated facet of the Spanish artist’s oeuvre: his drawings. As they are not made to order and do not require the help of assistants, the drawings afford Plensa a greater freedom of experimentation. Plensa works with a variety of materials, such as plastic sheets or thick glue on paper or Plexiglas, modulating the interplay between light and transparency, which imbues his two-dimensional works with the appearance of volume. As with his sculptures, the artist focuses on the human figure, which he assembles with photos, letters and numbers. By elucidating the diversity of Plensa’s artistic process, the monograph champions his drawings as works in their own right.

Jaume Plensa: One Thought Fills ImmensityJaume Plensa: One Thought Fills Immensity

Published by Skira.
Text by Jeremy Strick, Clare Lilley, Brooke Kamin Rapaport, Fumio Nanjo, Catherine Millet.

Internationally celebrated Spanish artist Jaume Plensa (born 1955) has emerged as one of the most significant voices in contemporary sculpture. Over the course of more than 30 years, Plensa has amassed a multifaceted body of work that mixes traditional and unconventional materials on both intimate and monumental scales. Working in steel, cast iron, resin, glass and stone, Plensa has traversed the globe with his public works and international exhibitions including at the Reina Sofia (Spain), Yorkshire Sculpture Park (United Kingdom) and the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume (France). From the Crown Fountain in Chicago, a modern-day agora in an urban landscape, to Echo, the enormous white sculpted head that greets Seattle's citizens on the shore, Plensa's nomadic practice speaks to the capacity and beauty of humanity. Illustrated in this volume are works on paper and sculpture that highlight his abiding themes.

Text by Florence Guionneau-Joie, Didier Arnaudet.

Over the past 25 years, the renowned Spanish Catalan artist and sculptor Jaume Plensa (born 1955) has established himself as one of the most ubiquitous exponents of public sculpture. À Bordeaux focuses on 11 monumental new sculptures by the artist installed in Bordeaux, France, seven of which have never before been reproduced. These include "Paula" (2013), a cast-iron sculpture standing over 23 feet tall, and "Marianna & Awilda" (2013), a work in stainless steel composed of figures seated facing one another in a dialogue. In addition to these and other new sculptures, this publication also includes celebrated works by Plensa in Millennium Park, Chicago; the Burj Khalifa, Dubai; the BBC Broadcasting Tower, London; Pearson International Airport, Toronto; Daikanyama, Tokyo; and Raoul Wallenberg Square, Stockholm, among many other sites worldwide.

The Crown Fountain

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Interview by Carsten Ahrens.

The Barcelona artist Jaume Plensa is best-known for his spectacular Crown Fountain in Millennium Park, Chicago. Constructed between 1999 and 2004 with support from the Crown Foundation, this work features water cascading down two monumental towers, as well as video and lighting effects. Alternating images recorded on video by Plensa show the faces of 1,000 Chicagoans from all segments of society. Every 12 minutes these faces transform into gargoyles reminiscent of traditional fountains. Plensa's Crown Fountain, which swiftly became a popular public attraction, is comprehensively presented in this monograph, along with an extensive chronology of his multi-faceted oeuvre.
