Work from her oeuvre.

“Despite the idea of stillness often associated with sculpture, Kläs’ works contain the energy of movement while integrating joint body parts in monolithic structures counterbalanced and held up by frames and ephemeral supports. In “All In”, 2011 a varied and multiform set of figures dialogue together in the main space, as in a family picture of humankind, keeping a precarious and yet controlled equilibrium. Through the cast, the artist is able to frieze a movement at the highest point of tension and the sculptures keep echoing that vibrating instant, like adjectives with a spirit.

The direct impact and physicality of the sculptures challenge the viewer to read through the forms, discerning the movements and searching deeper in an effort to elaborate a reference.” – Peter Blum
