A collection of visual incursions by Italian artist Emilio Prini in dozens of exhibition catalogues and print publications over the course of five decades. Meticulously researched, and yet necessarily incomplete, this book is a glimpse into the subtlety with which Prini turned each engagement with the world of ideas into a joust for mastery over space, time, and form.
In his work, Arte Povera artist Emilio Prini (1943–2016) used photography, sound and written texts to challenge the viewer’s perception and experience. Highlighting particular elements, he often revealed the relationship between reality and its reproduction.
