Jannis Kounellis

JANNIS KOUNELLIS Piraeus, 1936 – Rome, 2017

Jannis Kounellis, an artist of Greek origins who became an Italian citizen, is one of the main representatives of Arte Povera. The modus operandi of Arte Povera involves the recovery and reuse of discarded materials to create installations that aim to expand beyond the physical limits of the artwork, establishing a connection between the artwork and the surrounding environment.
