    Full Description

    The first monograph dedicated to the artistic journey of Sicilian-born Antonino Bove (b.1945), one of Italy’s most multifaceted contemporary artists, and his research into the sphere of dreaming and death. In the early 1960s, Antonino Bove began using a photographic camera to produce prints, and assembled images and texts, integrating materials like wax, tar, gauze, and different pigments into his paintings in addition to small objects and glass. His work is charged with an ethereal, psychological, and metaphysical sense of poetry. During the following decade, this orientation was intensified with deeper research into ethno-anthropology, characterised by social, political and historical elements. But the artist’s principal source of fascination was his utopian artistic project aimed at saving mankind from physical death, and at the same time, saving the universe itself.

    Text in English and Italian.
