Jannis Kounellis’ works differ fundamentally from conventional art. Instead of illustrating life, they incorporate it as such: fragments of the real world – animals, plants, coal, human hair – are brought into “scenic” constellations in such a way that a new reality arises, stimulating the fantasy of the viewer. With poetic imagination, Kounellis deploys in his works means that activate all the senses and generate an unusually direct effect.
