Flavia Robalo I Opening 17 July 2021

June 30th, 2021

EXHIBITION 

SACCHETTI CONTEMPORARY is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Switzerland of works by Flavia Robalo, an artist based in Pietrasanta/Tuscany. With great sculptural skill, Robalo creates an atmospherically dense cosmos centered on female figures that seem dreamlike and immersed in themselves. In formal terms, she develops her protagonists in the field of tension between movement and pause. Robalo’s works refer to an existential dimension: they can be understood as the essence of being human that has become substance.

OPENING: 17 July, from 3pm to 6pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 17 July until 4 Septembe

Michael Schuster I Opening 17 July 2021

June 30th, 2021

EXHIBITION 

SACCHETTI CONTEMPORARY is pleased to present the second solo exhibition of works by Michael Schuster, an artist based in Berlin. Dried and pressed sycamore leaves serve as the material for his artistic work. Using a scalpel, he carefully and expertly cuts out figurative silhouettes from single leaves, which are then applied to paper or assembled in the form of wall installations. Thematically, Schuster deals with the preservation and retention of memories.

OPENING: 17 July, from 3pm to 6pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 17 July until 4 September  

Annelies Štrba at Villa Garbald in Castasegna/Bergell

June 29th, 2021

In a cooperation with the Bündner Kunstmuseum that has existed since 2005, special impulses are brought to the Villa Garbald through annually changing presentations with art. The Bündner Kunstmuseum makes a special effort to preserve the legacy of the photographer and artist Andrea Garbald and to keep photographic art alive in this house.

This year’s guest is the artist Annelies Štrba, who lives in Richterswil and Arcegno, and whose photographs bring a surprising privacy to the rooms of the villa. On display are photographs from the extensive body of work NOONDAY, which capture her everyday family life. The exhibition will run from 3 July 3 2021 to 25 June 2022. 

 

Ursula Palla I Opening 13 May 2021

May 1st, 2021

EXHIBITION 

SACCHETTI CONTEMPORARY is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by Ursula Palla, an artist based in Zurich. In the form of videos and sculptures made of bronze, which are sometimes grouped together as installations, she critically questions the appropriation and manipulation of nature by man. Her works, which are preceded by well-founded research, suggest a paradisiacal state on a formal-aesthetic level. On closer inspection, the beautiful appearance falls apart at the contradictions of the details. 

OPENING: 13 May, from 3pm to 6pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 13 Mai until 10 July 

Sonja Simone Albert I Opening 13 May 2021

May 1st, 2021

EXHIBITION 

SACCHETTI CONTEMPORARY is pleased to realize a solo exhibition with works by Sonja Simone Albert, an artist based in Bonn. In an extremely time-consuming painting process, Sonja Simone Albert creates large-format works in oil, which, in terms of motifs, are entirely marked by nature and may be reminiscent of photographic images. Man is occasionally present: sometimes directly as a person in the landscape, sometimes indirectly as a picker of the bouquet of wildflowers. The artistic interest is in visualizing a particular moment in nature and the atmosphere associated with it. 

 

OPENING: 13 May, from 3pm to 6pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 13 Mai until 10 July

Maxim Wakultschik I Opening 20 March 2021

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, with the presence of the artist 
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, with the presence of the artist 
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. The show will be extended until 26 June 2021!
