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

Michele Lamassa I Artists’ Apéro 14 August 2020 in our Pop Up Gallery in Locarno

July 25th, 2020

PRESENTATION OF NEW WORKS

We are pleased to present new works by Michele Lamassa in our Pop Up Summer Gallery in Locarno, Via Serafino Balestra 1a. 

Michele Lamassa dedicates himself to a technique that is atypical within contemporary art: the fresco painting. The themes and motifs chosen by Lamassa show him to be a persistent observer of our time and recent history. His frescoes have a temporary character; using the strappo method – a method of restoration to remove wall paintings and prevent them from decay – the artist transfers his large-format frescoes to jute, whereby they develop their unique effect outside the original architectural context. 

 
!!! IN OUR POP UP GALLERY IN LOCARNO !!!
APÉRO: 14 August, from 5pm to 7.30pm, with the presence of the artist
DURATION: from 14 August until 10 October 
 

Michael Schuster I New Works

July 25th, 2020

CUT OUTS 

Preserving memories is the central theme of Michael Schuster’s artistic practice. The sun is the starting point in many ways. Dried and pressed sycamore leaves are created from sunlight. The artist takes his inspiration from photographs. They are also made of light. Schuster’s “light figures” interpret a moment from the past and make it a new experience for the present.
