Michelangelo Pistoletto is beyond Arte Povera, Pop or Nouveau Réalisme, his work is the struggle through the different years of his life and is like the minor residues of a great laboratory which has surpassed the art object in order to enter into the epicentre of society. His interest in artistic creation stems from cohabiting from early childhood with a father whose profession was restoring works of art. There he observed pieces of great value and religious images belonging to an iconography which had its origins in the Middle Ages. This cohabitation, combined with the beginning of his education in Catholic schools, made him reflect on the relations between art and religion; an enquiry that reached its maturity of thought in 1978 when he conceived the show titled Division and Multiplication of the Mirror - Art Takes On Religion.
