One of the main representatives of the Arte Povera movement, Nakis Panayotidis draws on a diversity of materials to create his art. Melding natural materials like lead, copper, iron, and stone with lamps and other found objects, Panayotidis looks for a point of equilibrium and interchange between these materials.
Published to accompany a twenty-year retrospective of the artist's work at the Kunstmuseum Bern, Nakis Panayotidis: Seeing the Invisible reproduces in nearly one hundred full-color illustrations a selection of Panayotidis's paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and installations from across his entire career. Editors Matthias Frehner and Regula Berger, who curated the exhibition, are joined here by art critic Bruno Corà, friends of Panayotidis, and collectors of his work in reflecting on its important themes, including the intrinsic permanence of momentary images and the acceptance of ancient mythology and art as part of modern life.
Matthias Frehner is director of the Kunstmuseum Bern, where Regula Berger is a research assistant. Together, they curated the exhibition Nakis Panayotidis: Seeing the Invisible.
