This monograph is being published to mark the exhibition 'Paolo Canevari - Nobody Knows' curated by Germano Celant. The exhibition has gathered together some of Canevari's foremost artworks supported by various media, from videos to the sculptures created with rubber from inner tubes and tires, and the performance created specially by the artist which, for an hour during the opening ceremony, involved a figure reminiscent of the Little Prince balancing on top of one of his many works entitled Globe. This book, which contains 650 images, a text written by the curator and comments by the artist, describes the influences, the input and the motivations behind Canevari's artistic output. Paolo Canevari was brought up in a family where his grandfather was a mosaicist, and his father and uncle were both sculptors. He is interested in the icons which, from the post-war period to the present day, have formed the memory of Italian culture. However, he subjects them to an anti-nostalgic treatment, in which the material used to depict them recalls the crisis and decadence of a civilisation. Canevari's works are on display and feature in the collections of some of the world's leading events and museums: the Venice Biennale, The MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) and the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York, the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, Villa Medici in Rome, the Contemporary Art Museum of Johannesburg, and many more.

Very good. Prato, Museo Luigi Pecci, 20 marzo-1 agosto 2010. Testo italiano/inglese. Milano, 2010; br., pp. 308, ill. b/n col., cm 24x26. La monografia è realizzata in occasione della mostra personale Paolo Canevari-Nobody knows, curata da Germano Celant. L'esposizione raccoglie opere fondamentali su vari supporti, dal video alle sculture realizzate con camere d'aria e pneumatici, sino alla performance appositamente ideata dall'artista che, per un'ora durante l'inaugurazione, si è immedesimato con il piccolo principe cavalcando il mondo in equilibrio sull'opera Globe. Il volume, attraverso 650 immagini, il testo del curatore e i commenti dell'artista, descrive le influenze, gli input e le motivazioni dell'operato artistico di Canevari. Nato in ascensore e cresciuto in una famiglia dove il nonno era mosaicista, lo zio e il padre scultori, Paolo Canevari, si interessa alle icone che, dal dopoguerra ad oggi, hanno formato la memoria della cultura italiana, sottoponendole però ad un processo antinostalgico, in cui la materia della loro figurazione richiama la crisi e la decadenza di una civiltà. Le opere di Canevari sono state esposte e raccolte in alcune delle principali manifestazioni e musei del mondo: Biennale di Venezia, MoMA, P.S.1, Irish Museum of Modern Art di Dublino, Villa Medici, Contemporary Art Museum di Johannesburg, ecc.
