Alighiero E. Boetti

Turin 1940 - Rom 1994


Alighiero Boetti was born in Turin in 1941. At a young age, Boetti began to study artists such as Lucio Fonatana, Arshile Gorky and Mark Rothko. Inspired and looking for his own artistic style, Alighiero Boetti went to Paris in 1962, where he trained auto-didactically.
During his two years in Paris, Alighiero Boetti mainly studied Jean Dubuffet's object art. In 1967 Boetti discovered the principle of seriality for himself and has called himself "Alighiero e Boetti" ever since. In 1968 he produced his most important work "Gemelli" (twins), a black and white photo montage, in which he doubled his portrait and questioned the uniqueness of himself.
From 1970 he produced his first biro pictures and from 1973 his famous embroidery pictures appeared, which developed into embroidered maps in the beginning of the 1990s. The outsized embroidered pictures were produced by female embroiderers in Afghanistan, where Alighiero Boetti had first traveled in 1971. Boetti designed his works on the basis of mathematical and conceptual principles, before they were implemented in Afghanistan.
From 1987 Boetti has been working with the Iranian Mahshid Mussari, who collected various motif patterns for his last and largest embroidery, which was commissioned in Afghanistan in 1993. Alighiero Boetti, however, did not live to see the completion of this work, which took 10 months.
He died from the consequences of a brain tumor in Rome in 1994.
