Arman was a US-naturalised French painter. This book covers the first twenty years of Arman's artistic production, from the Accumulations
of industrial objects and series products to the Poubelles
, documenting consumer society's waste; from the famous Colères, Coupes
, which through different processes dematerialise objects depriving them of their functionality, to paintings, to actions and monumental works adhering to the 'poetic of things'.
