A special highlight at Art Cologne 2006 is an exhibition of the work of Jannis Kounellis, a major Arte Povera artist (literally, “poor art”), titled “Homage to Jannis Kounellis“. The exhibition features a reconstruction of one of his most famous works, the spectacular installation Untitled (12 Horses). The original was staged in 1969 at Galleria L’Attico in Rome. It consisted of a group of twelve live horses tethered in the gallery. The exhibition also features a Kounellis portfolio titled Opus One. This is on loan from the Albertina in Vienna. Both artworks can be viewed in Hall 4 of the Cologne Trade Fair Centre (Ground Floor, Stands D-070, E-070 and E-071). Art Cologne, November 2, 2006.
