August 13th, 2021

1st FLOOR SACCHETTI CONTEMPORARY – Presentation of fresco paintings out of the series METAMORFOSI 

We are pleased to present on the first floor of our gallery fresco paintings from the current series of works METAMORFOSI by Michele Lamassa. His most recent works belong to a series of 33 paintings and are dominated by the depiction of a clearly contoured butterfly, each of which almost fills a monochrome pictorial space. Motif and title refer to the phenomenon of metamorphosis described in zoology, in an extended sense to a spiritual transformation of the individual and society as well as the new beginning that goes along with it, which is underlined by the depicted word NULLA.

OPENING: 25 September, from 2pm to 5pm, with the presence of the artist 
DURATION: from 25 September until 30 December

Thilo Hoffmann I Opening 25 September 2021

August 12th, 2021

ARTISTIC INTERVENTION

SACCHETTI CONTEMPORARY is pleased to present a really special object: the silhouetteur. In the silhouetteur, all visitors can transform themselves into the figure they have always wanted to be: two wings make you an angel, a crown makes you a king, a woolen blanket turns you into a monster. With the silhouetteur, Thilo Hoffmann brings together with Elias Al-Ameri the ancient tradition of shadow play into the present: the audience sees the person standing on an illuminated box only as an outline. Visitors are invited to join in, to transform themselves for a moment. The most impressive figures are captured with a digital camera. Cell phone photography is also welcome. 

OPENING: 25 September, from 2pm to 5pm, with the presence of the artists 
DURATION: from 25 September until 30 December

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 May until 10 July
