MICHELANGELO
PISTOLETTO

HALL 2.0

STAND F16

(1933, Biella)

The artwork is from the series 'Lavoro' (Work), in which the artist sheds light on the human condition of working through his specific language, elevating to art the little daily things that are in front of the viewer's eyes every day but often go unnoticed.

Michelangelo Pistoletto has been represented by Christian Stein since 1967.

Michelangelo Pistoletto lives and works in Biella, Italy. He is one of the most influential artists of his generation and a pioneer of the Arte Povera movement. For over half a century, Pistoletto has sought to merge art and life through sculptural installations, experimental performances, and, most famously, his iconic mirror paintings, which serve as the foundation of his artistic practice.
