Piero Gilardi was born in Turin in 1942, son of the painter and model Cecilia Lavelli.

He achieved great fame with the Nature Carpets in 1965: these are works made of polyurethane (polyuteranism), which reproduce fragments of the natural environment in an extremely realistic way, for recreational purposes but also as a denunciation of a lifestyle considered increasingly artificial (Greto stream, Gallery of modern art, Cagliari). These carpets were exhibited in Hamburg, Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, Milan, New York and Paris.

Starting in 1968 Gilardi interrupted the production of works to participate in the theoretical elaboration of the new artistic trends: poor art, land art and Antiform art. In 1969 he participated as a collaborator in the creation of the first two international exhibitions of new international trends Op Losses Schroeven at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and When Attitudes Become Form at the Kunsthalle in Bern.

Most of Gilardi's recent works have one theme in common, namely the interaction between the work and the spectator.


Dimensions 30x30cm

Work by Piero Gilardi with the name "Fichi e cachi".

These works fall within the "carpets of nature" trend made of polyurethane foam, which faithfully reproduce natural scenarios. The artist's aim is ironic and polemical and takes its cue from American PopArt, in particular the creations of Claes Oldenburg with an ecological background.

The work is mounted in a plexiglass case that enhances it.
Gilardi's works are united by the interaction between work and spectator, creating new ways of approaching art and its user.

With these works, the artist refers to nature and its miracles.
