Piero Gilardi was born in Turin in 1942, the son of painter and model Cecilia Lavelli.
He achieved great fame with the Tappeti natura (Nature Carpets) in 1965: these are works made of polyurethane (polyuteranism), which reproduce in an extremely realistic way fragments of the natural environment, for playful purposes but also as a denunciation of a lifestyle considered increasingly artificial (Greto di torrente, Gallery of Modern Art, Cagliari). Such Carpets were exhibited in Hamburg, Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, Milan, New York and Paris.
Beginning in 1968 Gilardi interrupted the production of works to participate in the theoretical elaboration of the new artistic trends: arte povera, land art, and Antiform art. He participated in 1969 as a collaborator in the creation of the first two international new trends exhibitions 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 share a common theme, namely the interaction between work and viewer.
