Mela Diamant I Opening 3 September 2022

July 16th, 2022

EXHIBITION and BBQ in our idyllic garden

Galleria SACCHETTI is pleased to present works by the Viennese Mela Diamant (formerly Kaltenegger) as part of the second solo exhibition. She creates chromatically fresh, mostly large format, pictorial worlds in the medium of painting and textile, which seem like a snapshot from a fairy tale story. Cheerfulness, irony, profundity and gentleness meet unconcernedly. Diamond’s works have an inherent character of the moment with the spectrum of innumerable developments. This is underlined by the carefully chosen titles of the pictures, often with a touch of poetry. They provide a direction without revealing too much and leave enough room for associations: “Which possibilities arise, the viewer of the actors, places, things and circumstances can weigh for themselves” (Mela Kaltenegger 2017).

OPENING: 3 September, from 4 pm to 8 pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 4 September until 15 October 

Maximilan Verhas I Opening 25 June 2022

June 11th, 2022

EXHIBITION 

The Galleria SACCHETTI is pleased to present the second solo exhibition of works Michael Verhas, an artist based in Berlin. Since 1985 the sculptor Maximilian Verhas has created works in bronze and German silver, which he describes as rolling bodies. By gently hitting on a smooth surface, Verhas’ abstract sculptures can be set in motion. Calculated by the artist, they roll in a certain rhythm over their convex or concave curved running edges and open themselves in rotation to the viewer from all sides. Verhas’ sculptural work breaks with the traditional character of a sculpture: it transforms from a passive, static object into a moving element.

OPENING: 25 June, from 2 pm to 6 pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 26 July until 13 August 

Ursula Palla at the Kunst(Zeug)Haus Rapperswil

June 11th, 2022

 

Galleria SACHETTI is pleased to announce the solo exhibition Like a Garden by Swiss artist Ursula Palla at the Kunst(Zeug)Haus Rapperswil. In her work, Ursula Palla interweaves video with spatial sculptures and works with delicate materials such as poured sugar, coal dust or snow. The fragility of the natural and animal world is the focus of many of her works. Delicate poetry and an enchanting aesthetic make them accessible on a first level. At the same time, all of the works are based on extensive research into their content, the knowledge of which only fully reveals the depth and urgency of the works. Ursula Palla’s video and spatial installations are poetic and at the same time reveal voids that often leave us with a stale feeling and remind us of our responsibility towards nature and the environment. The artist’s work is thus highly topical. The exhibition lasts until 31 July 2022. 

 

Maxim Wakultschik I Opening 7 May 2022

May 5th, 2022

EXHIBITION 

Galleria SACCHETTI is pleased to present the complex and multi-layered works of Düsseldorf-based artist Maxim Wakultschik to the Swiss public for the second time as part of a solo exhibition in its recently renovated, historic premises. Wakultschik’s artistic practice demonstrates an extraordinary curiosity as well as a willingness to experiment in dealing with different techniques and materials. He chooses materials such as acrylic, wood, metal or glass. The artist, who was trained in painting, repeatedly breaks with the classical concept of the image: an expansion beyond the two-dimensional into the object-like can be discerned.

OPENING: 7 May, from 2 pm to 6 pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 8 May until 18 June
