PierPaolo koss  1959  Graduated in Fine Art  at the Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti  in Genoa (Italy) –Visual Artist  and performer  since  1978 he operates on different levels of expression (performance,photography,video,installation) without losing the essential  unity of the poetic gravity on the  relationship between  self and other,developed and exposed in his open contradictions between reality and appearance,artifice and nature.He is interested in the metaphor between the “politic body”and the “social body” in the  ambiguity of contemporary power.

 

PierPaolo Koss   1959,  formazione Diploma di Laurea  all’Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti  Genova , artista visivo e performer dal 1978 realizza performance ed installazioni , uno dei principali temi della sua opera: la  metafora tra il corpo politico e il corpo sociale nell’ambiguità del potere contemporaneo.

Opera su diversi piani espressivi (performance, fotografia, video, installazioni,) senza perdere un’essenziale unità poetica  che gravita sul rapporto tra il sè e l’altro elaborato e smascherato nelle sue aperte contraddizioni, tra realtà e apparenza, artificio e natura.
