Vettor Pisani (Bari, 1934 - 2011) was a painter, architect and playwright. By combining sculpture, installation, photography and performance, Vettor Pisani builds dreamlike places populated by sphinxes, puppets, celibate machines, dolls, islands of the dead, which together symbolize the complex universe of the individual’s neuroses, the theatre of humanity deprived of any illusions.
In 1972 he was invited to Kassel's "Documenta 5" and in addition to the 1972 Venice Biennale, Pisani participated in the 1976, 1978, 1984, 1986, 1990, 1993 and 1995 Biennials. He has also participated in the 1973, 1986 and 1992 Quadrennials Rome and in exhibitions such as "Avanguardia / Transavanguardia" in Rome and "Italian Art Now: an American Perspective "at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 1982; "Arte Italiana 1960-1982" at the Hayward Gallery in London in 1982, "Terrae Motus" and "Terrae Motus 2" at Villa Campolieto in Ercolano in 1986 and at the Grand Palais in Paris in 1987.
