About the Artists

1942 Torino, Italy

Piero Gilardi was born in Turin in 1942, where he lives and works.

In 1963, he made his first solo show, Machines for the future. Two years later he realizes the first works in expanded polyurethane, the Carpets-nature exhibiting in Paris, Brussels, Cologne, Hamburg, Amsterdam and New York. Starting from 1968 he interrupted the production of works to take part in the elaboration of the new artistic trends of the late 1960s: Arte Povera, Land Art, Antiform Art. and at the Kunsthalle in Bern.

In 1969, he began a long transcultural experience directed at the theoretical analysis and the practice of the conjunction "Arte Vita". As a political militant and animator of youth culture he leads various experiences of collective creativity in the urban suburbs and in the "world": Nicaragua, Indian Reserves in the USA and Africa.
In 1981 he resumed his activity in the artistic world, exhibiting in installations galleries accompanied by creative workshops with the public. Beginning in 1985 he began an artistic research with new technologies through the elaboration of the IXIANA Project which, presented at the Parc de la Villette in Paris, prefigures a technological park in which the general public has experimented digital technologies in an artistic sense. During the 1990s he developed a series of interactive multimedia installations with an intense international activity. Together with Claude Faure and Piotr Kowalski, he established the international association Ars Technica. As manager of the Italian section of Ars Technica he promotes the Arslab international exhibitions in Turin. Methods and Emotions (1992), Arslab. The Senses of the Virtual (1995), Arslab. The labyrinths of the body in play (1999).

He has published two books of theoretical reflection on his various research: From art to life, from life to art (La Salamandra, Milan 1981) and Not for Sale (Mazzotta, Milano 2000 and Les Presses du réel, Dijon 2003). He writes articles for various art magazines such as Juliet and Flash Art.
He promoted the PAV project - Parco Arte Vivente, which opened in Turin in 2008, in which he summarizes all his experiences related to the dialectic Nature / Culture.

About the Gallery


Milan, Via Comelico, 40

Dep Art Gallery opened on 22 September 2006 with an exhibition of works by Mario Nigro. Founded in Milan by Antonio Addamiano, it owes its name, which stands for Distribution and Art Promotion, to the English word "depart". It is, thus, a departure with a precise direction that the gallery pursues to this day, characterized by a broad and varied cultural pr...
