Buchbeschreibung London : Afterall Books, 2008. Hardcover. Dustjacket. 109 pp. Condition : as new. - In 1968, the Italian artist Alighiero Boetti renamed himself Alighiero e ("and") Boetti, effectively expressing the duality of his personality and his work--and, by extension, the dichotomies of society and culture and art and life. Boetti was a central figure in the arte povera movement, a group of Italian artists in the late 1960s who expressly distanced themselves from commercialization and the slickness of Pop Art. These artists worked with a wide range of nonconventional materials--from wool and vegetables to silk and dirt. This illustrated study examines Boetti's 1988 work Map (or Mappa), one of the artist's series of woven tapestry maps of the world. In the cartography of this Map, each country is depicted by its flag; its pre-postcommunist picture of the world shows the Soviet Union as a vast expanse of red in the upper eastern corner, projecting the last image of a long-failed socialist utopia. Opposed to "the myth of originality," Boetti saw his role as that of triggering a work of art rather than executing it. Map (and the rest of the series) was based on a schema designed by Boetti's friend and collaborator Rinaldo Rossi and embroidered by a team of craftswomen in Kabul, Aghanistan. The finished work, with its brightly colored, painstakingly woven national flags, transforms the rigid norms of state division into a maze of colors. Map offers not just the beauty of a handcrafted carpet but a movingly interwoven pattern of interdependence that the world too often fails to recognize. Pier Luigi Tazzi is a critic, lecturer, and curator, currently based in Capalle, Italy. Alighiero e Boetti (1940-1994) was a central figure of the arte povera movement of radical Italian artists in the 1960s.AFTERALLAFTERALL Condition : as new.
