Born in Italy graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts  of Genova, he  has been working  in Europe ,Russia, China , Japan. Visual artist and performer since  1978 he operates on different levels  of expression (  photography, videos, installations, performances ) without losing the essential  unity of the poetic gravity on the relationship between “self and other, developed and exposed in its open contradiction between reality  and appearance, artifice and nature. He is interested in the metaphor between the “political body ” and the “social body ” in the ambiguity  of contemporary  time .PierPaolo Koss doesn’t slit  his own body as a  canvas by Fontana, he doesn’t cut his own flesh   to prove  immortality through the bright red spurting of the vital  stream; he expresses the organic limits by means of action slow-downs  and marvellous body motions, which catalyze the gaze of cunning beholders and outline  the most  diverse maps of reality. Koss has always worked for the creation of shifting  identities, undergoing  continuous transformations ,using  the body as a means  and not as  an end, a battlefield  with  strong biological limits .
