Giulio Paolini

Del Bello Ideale. Nella Vita (2 vols.) I: La Mostra II. Nella Vita

With more than 30 works spanning from 1962 to 2018 the catalogue explores three themes of Paolini’s work.

Portrait and Self-portrait, a veritable topos of Western art history and focus of the practice of Paolini.

On the Surface, a view on his relationship with the theme of perspective in all its forms, from an exploration of lines to the symbology of horizons up to the use of mirroring, tautology, and repetition as tools for analysing space and time.

One of Two explores the relationship between myth and classicism in Paolini’s artistic universe: emblems of an ideal beauty that creates a seemingly unbridgeable distance between the work of art and the viewer.

The catalogue is attended by an autobiographical photobook made by the artist himself that collects almost 100 unpublished photographs from Giulio Paolini’s Archive.

English and Italian text.
