Piero Golia

  • Italian-born and Los Angeles-based Piero Giolia’s work assumes the form of actions, sculptures, and installations often characterized as being extreme yet poetic. With a particular love for mischief, Golia takes everyday gestures and pushes them to the limit in order to cast an ironic look at contemporary society. Following the steps of legendary artists such as Bas Jan Ader, some of Golia’s works have taken the form of adventurous trips, like Going to Tirana (2000), in which he rowed across the Adriatic Sea, moving in the direction opposite from migrants trying to leave Albania.
