A student of Anthony Caro and an assistant to Henry Moore, Phillip King, born in Tunis in 1934, is still very present this year with a solo exhibition at Galerie Lelong in Paris. He represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1968 and was President of the Royal Academy from 1999 to 2004. Filmmaker Gerald Fox visits the sculptor in his studio sharing his thoughts about space and colour with us while working on new projects. The film ends with the creation of a new outdoor piece for the Kistefos Museum in Norway. We watch the artist working on a model, visit the site and finally get to see how a major piece is put into place. Here we experience first-hand King´s idea of “extending the dialogue you can have with a work by the use of colour”.
