Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely worked together from 1960. The first joint projects at this time were the so-called “Assemblages”, initiated by Niki de Saint Phalle, in which materials, paper and wire were painted, shaped and glued and then Jean Tinguely brought these together in an “Assemblage”.

The first joint exhibitions took place in Amsterdam and Stockholm in 1961 and the first large scale collaborative work for the artist duo was their participation in the French pavilion of the 1967 World Fair in Montreal, where an ensemble of sculptures and machines was presented.
