Senza titolo (Trittico)
In 1967, Jannis Kounellis was included in a seminal show at the Galleria La Bertesca, in Genoa, for which the curator, Germano Celant, coined the term Arte Povera, describing the artists? use of detritus in their work. The effect of their experimentation was elemental and anti-elitist. In his long career, Kounellis has continued to explore diverse, often found materials, including live animals, fire, gold, bed frames, windows, smoke, mounds of coffee grounds, and trolleys. It is not surprising that Kounellis is interested in alchemy: in transforming the sterile confines of the gallery, he has breathed life into art. His work can be found in important collections world-wide, including the MOMA and Guggenheim Museum in New York, MOCA in Los Angeles, and the Courtauld Institute and Tate Modern in London.
These three prints are framed separately, but form a dramatic tryptich.
