Alighiero Boetti was one of the most influential Italian artists of the 20th-century. As a key member of the Arte Povera group he sought radical new ways to use simple materials like stamps, pens and magazine covers. Later on he travelled to places like Ethiopia, Guatemala and Afghanistan and created some wonderful embroideries.
This new exhibition features many works never seen in the UK before, such as "Self-Portrait 1993" -- a life-size cast of the artist hosing his head with a jet of water.
