Art: Jannis Kounellis

Greek artist Jannis Kounellis is known for using a myriad of objects, (e.g., live animals, fire, coal, bed frames) in his art installations. I first came across his work at an exhibit I attended a couple of years ago at the Fondation de l’Hermitage in Lausanne of all places and I was drawn to his black and white pieces. Much of his work is at the Tate Modern in London, so if you’re interested, and in the neighbourhood, go have a peek and let me know what you think.
