Marisa Merz (1926 –2019) was an Italian artist and sculptor.In the 1960s, Merz was the only female protagonist associated with the radical Arte povera movement. In 2013 she was awarded the prestigious Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale.She lived and worked in Turin, Italy . Working with both traditional and non-traditional materials, the artist’s works often blur the categorization of domestic objects — blankets, bowls of salt, and boots — with art objects, such as sculpted heads and painted angels. “
