Texts by Jens Hoffmann, Andrea Lissoni, and Luca Lo Pinto
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.
