To overcome the strictures of his early academic training in art, Paolo Canevari turned to Arte Povera as a place to start afresh, and as an antidote to the "high rhetoric" of conventional materials. Canevari bring a minimalist's restraint to his materials--which include rubber tires and inner tubes--and also a more explicit political commentary on their ramifications in the world. This volume documents 10 years' worth of Canevari's work.
