 "La Gioia" october - december 2014

Born in 1940 in Italy. Lives and works in Turin.

Giulio Paolini is often linked to Arte Povera, but his practice is closer to conceptual art. Dissatisfied with the commodity status assigned to traditional media such as painting, he decided to embark on a conceptual exploration of the parameters of the painting’s status within our culture as well as its physical structure. His use of found materials with sometimes historical and literary references gives his works strong conceptual and critical layers. His research is centered as much on the artist's tools as on the figure of the artist as an operator of language and accomplice of the viewer.
