Gilberto Zorio's Biography
Gilberto Zorio is an Italian sculptor and one of the most influential figures in the Arte Povera movement. Born in 1944 in Aosta, Italy, he is known for his ephemeral works and installations made from everyday materials that often combine natural elements with industrial products. His sculptural works often focus on the relationship between the object, its environment, and its viewers. Zorio's works are often seen in major collections, galleries, and museums around the world. His works have been featured in major exhibitions, including the Reversing the Eye: Arte Povera and Beyond 1960-75 at the Jeu de Paume in Paris, France, Candida Höfer- Liechtenstein in Dialogue with the Collections of Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein and the Hilti Art Foundation in Vaduz, Liechtenstein, and The Primacy of the Artwork at the Galleria Civica d´Arte Moderna e Contemporanea (GAM) in Turin, Italy.
