Poster featuring in Greek the title of Jannis Kounellis' artwork Untitled, 2004, part of the ΕΜΣΤ collection.

Having developed strong ties with the Arte Povera avant-garde movement, already in the 1960s, Jannis Kounellis explores the alienation of contemporary society by juxtaposing materials drawn from the industrial civilization and urban mass culture with symbols and values of a pre-industrial world.

The artwork Untitled, 2004 —created for EMST is a monumental installation consisting of multiple cross-shaped diagonal black metal rails that lean towards the ground. The crosses are arranged in a circular display, in the middle of which stands a table loaded with bags full of charcoal. The table resembles a sacrificial altar, while the entire space surrounding it transforms into an emotive, solemn, and profoundly spiritual environment.
