Jannis Kounellis, A Case Summary; Livingstone Gallery, The Hague


Livingstone Gallery presently shows some object-cases and works on paper by Jannis Kounellis (1936).

For those who are familiar with Kounellis’ works the show may not contain big surprises but the exhibits are still very pure and direct, and hardcore-Kounellis.

For those who are not familiar with Kounellis or indeed with arte povera, this might be a modest but good introduction.

Apart from each work telling its own story, there is a great consistency in Kounellis’ work.

Kounellis is shown alongside new works by Jan Wattjes about which I reported earlier on this blog and on Villa La Repubblica (in Dutch).
