CATALOGUE NOTE
“During the course of his wanderings, Kounellis uncovers the incomparable richness of this multiple and fragmentary heritage: he brings together its material testimonies and spiritual messages in the crucible of his creative memory, only to access them later and project them into the future of his oeuvre.” (M. Scheps, ‘The Odyssey of Kounellis the European’, in Jannis Kounellis: In the Neue Nationalgalerie, exh. cat., Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, 2008, p. 43)
