- PIERO GILARDI
Peter Gilardi was a Italian artist, born in Turin in 1942.
In 1963 he made his debut with the neo-Dadaist exhibition Machines for the future at the Image Gallery of Turin.
Two years later he created i Rugs-Nature, works in expanded polyurethane through which the artist wants to denounce an increasingly artificial lifestyle and increasingly distant from nature, typical of contemporary society.
Starting in 1968, Piero Gilardi interrupted artistic production to devote himself to political activity, while supporting the artistic movements of collective and spontaneous creativity.
He returned to artistic production in 1981, recounting his artistic-ideological journey in a text entitled From art to life, from life to art, published in 1981. Continued in 2000 Not for sale for Mazzotta publisher.
Starting in 1985, he began an artistic research on new technologies through the elaboration of IXIANA project which, presented to Parc de la Villette in Paris, prefigures a technology park in which the public can experience digital technologies in an artistic sense.
Since 2002, Piero Gilardi has been working on the project for PAV – Living Art Park which was inaugurated in Turin in 2008. In 2013, he created the exhibition there Piero GilardiRecent works 2008-2013 which, as the title itself underlines, collects the works created by the Turin artist starting from the birth of the PAV. The exhibition aims to investigate the person of Piero Gilardi as a man in the world through all his artistic experiences realized in the last five years and mostly related to the Nature/Culture dialectic. Among the exhibited works, the series of drawings, chalk, pen and ink on paper, observation of reality, made between 2011 and 2012, which reproduce glimpses of nature in places in the Turin countryside, very dear and known to the artist.
