This publication gathers together images shot both in the artist’s studio and his exhibition at La Piscina, along with a curatorial text. Going beyond the concept of a catalogue, it is thus a book both by and for the artist: a permanent area of his personality and artistic being.
“Ako Atikossie chooses the mass of water surrounding the lands and continents we inhabit (…). Yet we humans often take the marine presence for granted. This is the central theme of his solo exhibition, treating the subject with the same attention as scholars and researchers who are turning their gaze to the ocean as a source of strategic new raw materials to fuel technological progress.” - Samuele Menin
