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 .
