This large-format book first appeared in 2001, and then again in 2004. More than fifteen years later, on the occasion of his passing, this third edition once again plunges us into the surreal, imaginative work of Henri Van Herwegen (1940–2019), the Belgian sculptor known by his pseudonym: Panamarenko. Most recognised for his assemblage work, the sculptor had a penchant for aeronautics, and variations on this theme were endlessly revisited throughout his career. None of his whimsical contraptions, however, were built to leave the ground. An essay by Jon Thompson accompanies fascinating design sketches and notes by the artist, plus many stunning high-gloss photographs.
