Published by Silvana Editoriale. Text and interview by Robert Storr. Text by Andrea Camilleri. Interview by Shirin Neshat, Francesca Pietropaolo.
This volume explores 30 years of multimedia works from New York– and Rome-based Italian artist Paolo Canevari (born 1963) through a selection of sculptures, drawings and installations ranging from earlier pieces influenced by Arte Povera to rubber pieces made during the 1990s. Using a variety of materials and mediums, Canevari forges a vocabulary he defines as “Baroque Minimalism.” Celebrating the artist’s first retrospective exhibition in the UK, held at the Cardi Gallery, London, the book includes his most recent Paesaggio and Constellation series, part of the ongoing project Monuments of the Memory. It is enriched by a commissioned essay by Robert Storr, a short story by Andrea Camilleri, and two interviews with the artist, one led by Shirin Neshat and the other by Robert Storr and Francesca Pietropaolo.
Published by Charta. Essays by Valerio Magrelli, Doris Von Drathen, Andrea Camilleri.
To overcome the strictures of his early academic training in art, Paolo Canevari turned to Arte Povera as a place to start afresh, and as an antidote to the "high rhetoric" of conventional materials. Canevari bring a minimalist's restraint to his materials--which include rubber tires and inner tubes--and also a more explicit political commentary on their ramifications in the world. This volume documents 10 years' worth of Canevari's work.
