Jannis Kounellis

The name Kounellis stands for one of the most significant contributions to Arte Povera, since, in 1967, Jannis Kounellis took part in the exhibition ‘Arte Povera e Spazio IM’ in Genoa. Kounellis has expanded the range of artistic media by incorporating into his work supposedly banal or crude everyday objects and materials like steel, coal, burlap sacks, mounds of ground coffee or coffee beans, coat racks, as well as phenomena such as fire, smoke or living animals. He has continuously managed to free himself from the constraints of the two-dimensional canvas and consequently has put painting into new territory, always questioning the traditionally pristine, sterile environment of the gallery.
