This book was created in conjunction with Micol Assaël’s solo exhibition “ILIOKATAKINIOMUMASTILOPSARODIMAKOPIOTITA”, curated by Andrea Lissoni at Pirelli HangarBicocca (Milan, January 31 – May 4, 2014). It brings together, for the very first time, all of the work made by the artist between 1999 and 2014, offering a detailed, in-depth look at her practice.
Micol Assaël’s entire oeuvre is characterized by the use and juxtaposition of different media: drawing, sculpture, installation, performance, video and sound. Her works often have a complex and at times precarious relationship with the variables (size, lighting, temperature, smell) of the setting that houses them. Each one is analyzed in an entry containing a description of the work, a chronicle of its evolution and an outline of its exhibition history.
