Metal structure, clamps, stones
Collection of Fondazione Merz
Mario Merz (1925-2003) was an artist and the husband of Marisa Merz. He was a member of the anti-Fascist group Giustizia e Libertà during World War II prior to joining the Arte Povera movement in 1967. Merz’s most well-known works are his free-standing igloo structures made of found objects such as stone and broken glass. He was deeply interested in the organic growth of natural elements and in exploring the relationships between art and nature.
