Piero Manzoni

Between gold and shit


“The work of Manzoni continues to be of interest, to intrigue, to annoy, because it rests on an incurable  ambiguity, between the mystic and the body, between high and low, between vitality and death. Between gold and shit.” 

The editions of the “Merda by Piero Manzoni” were produced and canned by the Fondazione Piero Manzoni for the death anniversary 1963/2013 along with the book “Breve storia della Merda d’artista” by Flaminio Gualdoni, Skira.

 On show and  on sale at the Carla Sozzani Bookshop.
