A journey through mythology, antique civilizations and cities which are cradles and of Jannis Kounellis's own artistic reflection. The book is accompanied by a puddle of lead, an original and unique work for each copy, signed by the artist.
The provocative spirit that animates the whole work of Jannis Kounellis is again expressed in La Perdita del punto di vista, a book he wrote for the collection L'art en écrit. The most radical member of the Arte Povera questioned the brevity of life and the unability to paint it as a whole, leading us on a journey through mythology, ancient civilizations and his own artistic questions. Kounellis works with simple materials such as iron, fire, cotton, wood, burlap ... and concerning the work inserted in the book lead.
Also available in regular edition.
Greek-Italian contemporary artist based in Rome, Jannis Kounellis (1936-2017) was one leading figure of Arte Povera.
