Jannis Kounellis ; contemporary artists series (édition en anglais)


Greek-born Jannis Kounellis was one of the key artists in the Arte Povera movement, and this book puts his career into context as never before. Following his breakthrough in the late 1960s in Rome, when he questioned the traditionally sterile environment of the gallery by exhibiting live animals within its walls, Kounellis went on to include diverse materials in his work, including fire, earth, gold, wood, and charcoal, quickly establishing himself as one of the most innovative sculptors of our time. Over the course of his long and successful career, Jannis Kounellis had many books and exhibition catalogues to his name but only a few in English. This book will be the final, most comprehensive book ever made of his work - Features writings by the artist and a collection of tributes from people who have known and worked with him over the years, including Pierre Audi, David Hammons, Gloria Moure, Giulio Paolini, Vassili Vassilikos, and many others - Timed to coincide with a posthumous exhibition at Gavin Brown's Enterprise, New York, and a retrospective at Tate Modern, London
