Paolo Gioli (1942, Sarzano di Rovigo – 2022, Lendinara) undertook a complex research project revolving around the genesis of imagery and the functioning of visual processes in the 1960s. He made his first film in 1969, while in his study of photography, he began with the pinhole technique, then that of the photo-finish and Polaroid emulsion lifted onto various supports. Since 1974 he has taken part in key experimental cinema events as well as major international exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale. His works are to be found in the collections of many major European and US museums, including that of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Art Institute Chicago, MoMA New York, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica in Rome and Museo di Fotografia Contemporanea Cinisello Balsamo (province of Milan).
