Description
Having made a name for himself in the Roman art scene of the early 1960s, Jannis Kounellis resurfaced, with extraordinary intuition and creative force, in the Arte Povera movement--the first Italian art movement to be recognized on an international level. Using materials that were initially considered unusual, such as wool, coal, live animals, plants, and theatrical sets, and endowed with a keen sixth sense, Kounellis worked to eliminated the ideological boundary that separates life from art, ethics from aesthetics, creation from production, the social and the political from the individual and the anarchic. Kounellis's intense artistic odyssey, his more than four decades of fervent and impassioned activity, is here richly illustrated on the occasion of his first large-scale exhibition in Belgium.
