Klaus Weber - The Big Giving

London's glowing this weekend. First out is the opening of Klaus Weber's show The Big Giving at the Festival Terrace, Southbank Centre, tomorrow Thursday at 6 pm. The title of the work, The Big Giving, refers to the native North American potlatch ceremony, in which the host's status increases the more he or she gives.

These images are from Klaus last show at Herald St (London) in 2006, and as you can see the volcanic-looking sculptures are giving and receiving, as the water gushes from one figure to another. AMAZING.
