NATURE FOREVER. Piero Gilardi

Gallery 3
curated by Hou Hanru, Bartolomeo Pietromarchi and Marco Scotini

Art must become part of life, but as life is alienated, we also need to commit to liberating and disalienating life. Piero Gilardi

With over 60 works, from the famous Nature-carpets to the interactive installations and through to the Living Art Park of Turin, along with important pieces exhibited for the first time in years or reconstructed for the occasion, the exhibition reviews the career of a master for whom art and life are identified with and become militant commitment, starting out from that as an ecologist.

Fifty-year career in which art, criticism and politics are intertwined

From the complex relationship between man and nature, it investigates the era of consumerism and the use of new technologies in a presentation tackling and exploring themes such as ecology, the relational nature of art and social and political commitment.It is divided into four sections, each of which includes both works and archive materials (sketches, texts, original photographs, small works) allowing a comprehensive overview of the artists thinking and poetic.
