Maxim Wakultschik I Opening 20 March

February 17th, 2021

EXHIBITION 

SACCHETTI CONTEMPORARY is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by Maxim Wakultschik, an artist based in Düsseldorf. He currently focuses on a technique that breaks with the classical concept of the image: an expansion beyond the two-dimensional into the object-like can be discerned. The artist creates aesthetic female faces. His approach is comparable to digital raster graphics, with the small but subtle difference that every pixel of a computer simulation is replaced, so to speak, by a precisely inserted toothpick colored by hand. Vakultschik explores the interaction of color and light, interstice and surface structure, whereby his works irritate our optical perception.

OPENING: 20 March, from 10am to 4pm
DURATION: from 20 March until 1 May 

Christian Verginer I Opening 20 March 2021

February 17th, 2021

EXHIBITION 

SACCHETTI CONTEMPORARY is pleased to present sculptures by the South Tyrolean Christian Verginer for the second time in a solo exhibition. His artistic work is committed to figuration and thematically dedicated to the sometimes ambivalent relationship between man and nature. His sculptures, executed with astonishing precision, are representations of children and young people. The sculptor questions – occasionally provocatively and ironically – human actions and their consequences for our habitat and future generations.

 

OPENING: 20 March, from 10am to 4pm 
DURATION: from 20 March until 1 May

1st FLOOR Galleria SACCHETTI – with an exhibition with works by Annelies Štrba 

The awarding of the Willy Reber Art Prize to Annelies Štrba at the beginning of October 2020 was the occasion for the Galleria SACCHETTI to realize an exhibition, which gives an insight into her extensive and diverse oeuvre by means of selected works from the years 1974 to 2020. On display are the large-format black-and-white photo canvases from the early days, color photographs on photographic paper behind glass, two video works, including the key work Shades of Time 2.0, as well as the intense color pigment prints on canvas from the Nyima, Madonna and Momoka series. The latter unfold a painterly effect thanks to their digital processing.

 

OPENING: 21 November, from 12pm to 6pm. The artist will be present from 2pm to 6pm.
DURATION: from 21 November 2020 until 31 March 2021

Axel Anklam I Opening 22 August 2020

August 12th, 2020

EXHIBITION 

The Galleria SACCHETTI is delighted to be the first to show works by the Berlin-based artist Axel Anklam in Switzerland. Anklam’s sculptures and reliefs create an exciting interplay of dynamics and calm, lightness and force, openness and closeness. His oeuvre impressively combines musical principles and the personal experience of being in nature. Both opaque and transparent materials are used: epoxy resin, carbon, fibreglass or stainless steel, from which the artist repeatedly creates net-like structures. 

 
OPENING: 22 August, from 3am to 5pm 
DURATION: from 22 June until 10 October  

Thomas Kaemmerer I Opening 22 August 2020

August 12th, 2020

EXHIBITION 

The Galleria SACCHETTI is delighted to be the first to show works by the Berlin artist Thomas Kaemmerer in Switzerland. Kaemmerer’s works irritate the viewer’s perception, since at first glance they appear to be photographs. On closer inspection, however, they reveal themselves to be paintings and the artist demonstrates virtuosity in the use of brush and palette. With a pronounced attention to detail, Kaemmerer brings architectural subjects – industrial plants, house facades and streets of European cities – technical devices or carefully composed still lifes to the canvas. 

 
OPENING: 22 August, from 3am to 5pm, with the presence of the artist
DURATION: from 22 June until 10 October
