Piero Gilardi. Opere storiche: 1964-1969 

OPENING: 20 March 2008 at 6 p.m.
from 20 March to 31 May 2008

Biasutti & Biasutti Gallery presents an exhibition dedicated to the artistic beginning of Piero Gilardi. Fifteen works of various sizes make up the body of an exhibition illustrating the birth of "nature carpets". These are his first works, temporally defined between 1964 and 1969, which identify Gilardi's art and all that the artist discovered in those years, attending the atelier between New York and the West Coast, between northern Europe and Italy and speaking with the "new artists" such as Bruce Nauman, Louise Bourgeois, Richard Long, Mario Merz, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Gilberto Zorio, Jan Dibbets, Konrad Leug, Emilio Prini, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Daniel Buren; also embracing a certain ideological commitment inspired by the literature of the student movement: Marcuse, Debord, Dewey and McLuhan. To better interpret the idea of Nature-carpets, Gilardi claims that this experience was: "a starting point of a story substantiated not by contamination but by hybridizations". On the occasion of the exhibition, a catalogue will be published with the presentation of Martina Corgnati, which traces the historical period between 1964 and 1969. The publication is also accompanied by some writings by Piero Gilardi.
