Miquel Barcelo 

Invited by the Palermo Festival of the Twentieth Century to plan an exhibition, Miquel Barceló fell in love with Santa Eulalia dei Catalani, a church dating from 1330 which is located at the heart of the city, a stone's throw from the most labyrinthine, sumptuous public market, the Vucciria. The church is a structure that has been reduced to its skeleton and has undergone pillaging and ruin. A large cycle dedicated to death, nutrition, and the offering, this work signals the encounter of this great artist with Sicilian culture and the emblematic fascination of Palermo- this is the thread that runs through the pages of this book, which documents the artist's work diary through the work's completion. Through an extraordinarily rich iconographic apparatus and pages from the artist's sketchbooks, the volume also testifies to Barceló's entire creative carrer beginning with the first works from 1983 through 1998. This book has 156 illustrations, 71 in color.
