Jannis Kounellis (1936-2017) was a Greek-born performance artist and sculptor. Originally trained in painting, Kounellis eventually shifted to installations. He created works that juxtaposed disparate materials, including stone, cotton, coal, bed frames, and doors. This artistic method can be seen in works where he has installed live birds in cages alongside paintings, sculptures accompanied by the playing of a Bach score, and his recurring installations wherein 12 live horses are displayed in galleries or other art spaces.
