About the Artist

1937 Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto, Italy

Emilio Isgrò (born in Barcellona, Sicily, 1937) is considered, along with Lucio Fontana and Piero Manzoni, to be one of the great trailblazers in Italian artistic language after the Second World War. 1956 Isgrò moved to Milan, where he still lives and works. Right from the start his artistic work has run parallel to his activities as writer, poet, playwright, director, performer and journalist. His first collection of poetry Fiere del Sud [Fairs of the South] (published by Arturo Schwarz) was issued. 1964 He executed his first “erasures/deletions” on encyclopedias and other books, thus giving dramatic birth to the visual poetry and conceptual art that he would subsequently develop and fine-tune. 1965 As part of the Gruppo 70 Festival he took part in the exhibition Poesie e no [Poems and not]. 1966 On the occasion of the exhibition dedicated to him at the Galleria Il Traghetto, Venice, he published Dichiarazione 1 [Declaration 1], in which he defines his conception of poetry as the “general art of the sign”. His poetry book L’età della ginnastica [The Age of Gymnastics] was published (Mondadori).
1969 He decided to apply his erasing techniques to the cinema too: he planned La jena più ne ha e più ne vuole [The hyena – the more it has, the more it wants], a film of almost complete darkness apart from a few seconds of flashing images, but the project failed to come off - “cancelled by nervous producers” laughs the artist. By way of compensation, the London Daily Mirror devoted a feature to him, with photo on the front page.
