Published by Silvana Editoriale.
Text by Bruno Corà, Annamaria Maggi, Ruggero Martines, Vito Labarile.

Working in Rome since 1956, Greek artist Jannis Kounellis (born 1936) was a seminal contributor to the Arte Povera group. Kounellis began his career as a painter; influenced by Alberto Burri and Lucio Fontana, he explored the boundaries of the medium and by 1963 was using found elements in his practice. Often monumental in scale, the artist's work unites ancient Greek themes with "poor" materials such as iron, wool, gold, jute sacks, coal, fire and even, controversially, live animals. One of his best-known works from the late 1960s incorporated 11 horses installed in the gallery. Published in conjunction with an exhibition in Bari, Italy, this monograph examines some of the artist's recent monumental evocations and explorations of the human figure and other sculptures alongside past works.

Jannis KounellisJannis Kounellis

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Angela Schneider, Marc Scheps.

In 1969, Greek-born Jannis Kounellis famously exhibited 11 live horses at Rome’s Galleria l’Attico. Kounellis, who has been living in Rome since the beginning of his career, is a pioneer of the Arte Povera movement, which originated in Italy in the mid-60s and is characterized by antiestablishment media (like street theater) and antielitist materials (like rope, rocks and discarded metal). Kounellis preferred dirt, fire, gold, burlap sacks, smoke and coffee grounds--to name a few of the substances that gradually appeared in his sculptures and installations. In 2002, Kounellis created his masterwork, “Labyrinth,” a monumental installation composed of 143 eight-foot-tall vertical iron panels surrounded by a layer of coal. Viewers can walk through to encounter traces of Kounellis’ past pieces: burlap sacks, an iron cot, coffee grounds. Like a trip through “Labyrinth,” this comprehensive monograph contributes richly to the understanding of Kounellis’ influential 40-year career.

Essays by Jan Hoet and Dieter Roelstraete.

Greek-born artist Jannis Kounellis is often identified with the Italian Arte Povera movement, though he had already made a name for himself in the Roman art scene of the early 1960s before allying himself to that movement in 1967. Using materials then considered unusual (such as wool, coal, live animals and plants), and blessed with a keen sixth sense for combining them, Kounellis worked to eliminate ideological boundaries between life and art, ethics and aesthetics, creation and production, the social and the individual. In the 1970s and 1980s, Kounellis continued to build this vocabulary of materials, introducing smoke, shelving units, coffee and coal. Kounellis's exemplary artistic odyssey and his more than four decades of fervent and impassioned activity are here surveyed on the occasion of his first large-scale exhibition in Belgium.

Essay Gloria Moure.

This monumental publication on the artist Jannis Kounellis covers the entirety of his career from the late 1950s thorugh the 1990s. Kounellis was a co-founder of the Italian movement Arte Povera and used a variety of materials, organic (coffee, coal) and inorganic (steel plates, textiles), to create his sculptural works, which speak to such elemental themes as heat, creation, decay and endurance.
