Antonella Zazzera

Antonella Zazzera's works offer a new vision of contemporary sculpture that reveals to have roots in art history. The works on display at art Karlsruhe, some of them realized for the occasion, are the sculptures called Armonici that take their place on the wall but even on the floor. Looking at these sculptures one should have the impression of not dealing with a work of art in the strictest sense but, rather, with a work/event or with genuine installation.
The copper wire is the basic material that constitutes these sculptures; the artist, that 2016 was awarded the prestigious Prize for sculpture Arnaldo Pomodoro, weaves the thread of her works with her hands, trying to feel the harmoniuous point where the copper wire has to be inserted; the vibrating effects provoked by the multiplications of lines produce sculptures of high tension. While the velvety Carte/Scultura are realized with copper thread and cellulose; these are three dimensional drawings, completed by the shadow cast on the wall. The Naturalia on display are sculptures that represent a development of the bird's nests and are dynamic forms that extend through space through the shadow.
Born in Todi (Perugia, I) in 1976, where she lives and works.
She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Pietro Vannucci in Perugia.
In 2005 she was awarded The 1° Premio per la giovane Scultura Italiana (1st Prize for young Italian
Sculpture) estabilished by the National Academy of San Luca in Rome and in 2016 she received the Arnaldo Pomodoro Sculpture Price.
Among her Solo and group exhibitions, starting from 2005 in Italy and  abroad we might mention the participation to Tissage Tressage, quand la sculpture dèfile,Fondation Villa Datris pour la sculpture contemporaine, L’Isle sur la Sorgue (F) 2018, Kairos Castle The Art of the Moment, a cura di Joke J. Hermsen, Kasteel Van Gaasbeek, Gaasbeek (B).

Angela Glajcar

The recent exhibition in Museum Powerlong in Shanghai (CN), 2019 and the participation to the Chengju Craft Biennale 2019 South Corea showed huge and dynamic installations of Angela Glajcar  that we are pleased to present at art Karlsruhe with the works called Paperwall and Terforations (2019).
The paper objects and installations of the Mainz sculptor Glajcar explore the way space is experienced, using a material that is fragile and light: the paper. In the act of ripping and perforating a material that is traditionally used as a two-dimensional support, Glajcar gives paper a strong sculptural presence. Finely tuned states of equilibrium of lightness and heaviness, materialness and immaterialness, are intended to evoke in the viewer an emotional reaction to the inanimate objects.
Born in Mainz (D) in 1970. Studium an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste Nürnberg. 
Angela Glajcar’s works have been shown internationally, in Museum Wiesbaden (D)- Terforation2.0, CODA Museum Apeldoorn (NL), Museion Museum for Modern and Contemporary art, Bozen (I) and currently in a large exhibition in the Powerlong Museum, Shanghai (CHN) and in the Biennale Chengju 2019 South Corea (Kor).

Nataly Maier

The present choice for art Karlsruhe of Maier’s works is meant to summarise a very peculiar artistic research, rooted in its etymological meaning of “writing with light” – and eventually resulting in an essential, and yet extraordinary rich and skillfully arranged inquiry on the reality of vision.
The works of Nataly Maier, who was awarded this year 2019 with the prestigious prize of the Foundation Paolo Michetti (I), are based on the specific quality of the colored surface, describable as a screen emanating a peculiar brightness, intimately connected with subjects of nature.
Through the format of the diptych – the two parts of it placed one on top of the other- Maier connects the domain of form, often introduced by a specific image like that of a waterfall (on the top) while the sensorial phenomena are related through the color (at the bottom), thus breaking up the basic elements of representation.
The conceptual component , expressed trough the separation of form and color, turns into a dialogue between two areas intended to capture the essence of nature.
The result is a continuously rebooted vision, in which color is the key player.
Born in Munich (D) in 1957, lives in Milan (I). Studed Philosophie in Tübingen.
Nataly Maier has been represented in numerous group and solo exhibitions as in 2019 in Museo Michetti,
Francavilla a Mare (I), 2018 in the Foundation Calderara (I).

Gallery profile

The outline of the gallery, opened by Antonella Cattani in 1991, is characterized by an exhibiting program that aims at showing contemporary personalities who have succeeded in emerging from the art scene because of the outcome of their researches in different practises that go from painting to sculpture, up to the new media.In an alternation between exhibits of established artistic positions - among whom Giuseppe Spagnulo, Claude Viallat, Marco Gastini, Gianni Dessì, Giovanni Frangi and Marco Tirelli can be quoted - projects of new generation artists are to be found, like the ones by Angela Glajcar, Julia Bornefeld, Antonella Zazzera, Emanuela Fiorelli, and Paolo Radi. In order to grant a historical continuity to the distinct eras, various shows are dedicated to historicized artists. Several protagonists of the Italian art after 1950 have thus been exhibited along the years, among whom Fortunato Depero, Afro, Antonio Sanfilippo, Pietro Consagra, Gastone Novelli and Achille Perilli.
