A scintillating story about the love and work of two artists who together epitomized the avant-garde of the late twentieth century. One of modern art's most productive relationships, the story of Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely, is a tale of passion and creativity that started, literally, with a bang when the two artists met while working on their respective seminal exhibitions. Tinguely was taking the art world by storm with his self-destructing piece Homage to New York. De Saint Phalle was staging her controversial shooting paintings. Together these iconoclastic geniuses would challenge convention and each other with their visions, collaborating on such major projects as the Tarot Garden in Tuscany, the Paradis Fantastique for the 1967 Expo in Montreal, and the Golem playground in Jerusalem. These and other works are beautifully reproduced in this artistic "duography" that covers the life and work of each of these artists from 1955 when they met, through to Tinguely's death in 1991.
