Pier Paolo Calzolari (b. 1943) is recognized as one of the original members of Arte Povera. He is known for his sculptural installations which make use of elemental materials such as plants, fire, lead, and most notably, frost. His works often explore the nature of existence and ideas of personal and collective memory. Calzolari’s works are included in the collections of the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Centre Pompidou in Paris among others.
