'Untitled' 2012 (coats, wire, screws), by Jannis Kounellis
"Such wall-mounted three-dimensional pieces seem to me to talk the language
of painting rather than sculpture. So does a massive, poignantly
flopping black cross created from several navy coats tied together with
wire and screws, hung against a wall. Each coat is a human measure, a
stand-in for a human presence." p.20.

"Expressed in terms of a community-building process, we could thus identify the entity of the nation state as representing the equivalent of the individual person: the prime agent through which community or chaos in the world will ultimately be determined." p.20.
