This monograph devoted to the artist-director duo Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi traces a large part of their work from the early 1970s to the 1990s. Thanks to a conversation curated by Sergio Toffetti and Daniela Giuffrida, it reconstructs the thread of a journey that begins with Angela Ricci Lucchi’s training in Salzburg with Oskar Kokoschka and the early film experiences of Gianikian; films that use found objects to focus on the themes of memory. The meeting of the directors’ artistic practices and their respective lives has fostered attention on the theme of the “catalogue”: the true pole around which Gianikian|Ricci Lucchi’s poetics revolves and unfolds. In addition to the aforementioned interview, the book includes texts by Alberto Farassino, Janis Crystal Lipzin, Scott MacDonald, and Michel Hommel, and is completed by texts by the filmmakers featured in the book.
