| Contains an interview with the artist and a complete, illustrated chronology of Pistoletto’s Mirror Paintings
Michelangelo Pistoletto (*1933 in Biella) is one of Arte Povera’s most significant protagonists, and his iconic Mirror Paintings earned him rapid and lasting international recognition, encapsulating his dual interest in conceptualism and figurative representation. While his subjects are presented on the threshold of another realm, the works come alive when the onlooker stands before them and involuntarily becomes a protagonist of the piece. This book seeks to evaluate his Mirror Paintings from the last four years in both a contemporary context and as representative of one of the central tenets of Pistoletto’s artistic project since creating the first Mirror Painting in 1962. An interview with the artist as well as a complete, illustrated chronology round off the publication.
