    COA by the artist

Paolini was born in 1940 in Genoa, and now lives and works in Turin. After training in graphics with a special interest in writing and the book as object, which was to characterise the course of his career (from Idem, 1975, to L’autore che credeva di esistere2012), Paolini focused his research on investigating the constituent elements of the image (Disegno geometrico, 1960; Ipotesi per una mostra, 1963). “I think I want to deliberately stay in the midst of these frames […] to comfort me […] for having created a model, an idea, and not an actual object.” In 1964 he exhibited at La Salita in Rome, presenting a display of white canvasses and frames arranged in a timeless scenic area. In 1967 he made Giovane che guarda Lorenzo Lotto, reinterpreting the famous painting not merely in an allusive manner but as a means for linking author and spectator. In the 1970s in particular, he investigated perspective as an analysis of representation (Nove quadri datati dal 1967 al 1971 visti in prospettiva). Paolini has participated in numerous solo and group shows, including at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1980); Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart (1986); GNAM, Rome (1988); Fondazione Prada, Milan (2003); Kunstmuseum, Winterthur (2005);  Whitechapel Gallery, London (2014); and at various editions of dOCUMENTA in Kassel and the Venice Biennale.
