Dana Widawski

Dana Widawski (Berlin, 1973)
Formally aesthetic but also qualitatively handcrafted, her works seem to have been stolen from an arts and crafts museum, but it would be too fleeting to leave it at that. Rather, she holds a mirror behind the decorationsof humanity and does not hesitate to deal with
stereotypes, to uncover absurdities and to play with contrasts. Her apparently decorative works of art are subtle and amusing in tone but also very provocative.
The solo- show by Dana Widawski, Decorations de Luxe, 2021 in the gallery Antonella Cattani presented porcelain figures on finely glazed consoles, ornamental wall coverings, tiles on which she has burned her figurative fantasies.
With her profound knowledge of the aesthetics and symbolic language of past cultural epochs, the freedoms she allows herself with her "artisan reconstructions" are anything but arbitrary. It is worth taking a deep look behind the scenes of what seems to be merely decorative decorations.

Giovanni Frangi

Giovanni Frangi (1959 Milan), began his exhibition career in 1983; in the essay by Achille Bonito Oliva, for the catalogue of his first one-man show in Milan, was then written: "It is a discipline of concrete sensation - less nostalgia and more life, less evocation and more colour, less I and more world." Giovanni Frangi’s pictorial language has gradually reached an original perception of landscape, as a mixture of openings towards abstraction and particular tonal visions.
The proximity with the limit of figuration, the tension towards a pure formal image, realeased from any merely representative link, still characterize his poetic. Nature acts therefore as a kind of gravitational point that withholds the figure inside a continuous movement of dissolution and and quest for form.
The artist pushes the work on the image to the limit of its being recognizable, up to the threshold of the sinking in the informed. In Frangi's landcapes colour is the agent of transformation, the vehicle of the alienation process from naturalistic data and at the same time component of more than strong fascination

ANTONELLA ZAZZERA

Born in 1976 in Todi (PG), Italy. Graduated (1999) from the Fine Arts Academy Pietro Vannucci in Perugia. Her artistic research is based on the power of signs and traces, on what she calls Segnotraccia, a visual and sensory archetype which becomes a total identification with the Being in its making. The copper wire is the basic material, that, combined with light, constitutes the most works by Antonella Zazzera. The artist weaves the thread of her sculpture with her hands, trying to feel the harmonious point where the copper wire has to be inserted.
The light, absorbed and exhaled by the copper wire, generates chromatic interferences, and makes the forms become non- forms. Looking at way in which the sculptures take their place on the wall or on the floor we can have the impression of not dealing with a work of art in the strictest sense but, rather, with a work/event or with genuine installations.
The artist started to exhibit her works in the 1990s with solo shows, as well as participations in high level group exhibitions in public spaces and galleries, both in Italy and abroad.
In 2005 she won the 1st Prize for Young Italian Sculpture established by the National Academy of San Luca in Rome. In 2016 she received the Arnaldo Pomodoro Sculpture Price, Foundation Pomodoro, Milan (I).

About us

Gallery profile

The profile of the gallery, opened by Antonella Cattani in 1991, is characterized by an exhibition program that aims at showing contemporary personalities who have succeeded in emerging from the art scene because of the outcome of their research into different practises that go from painting to sculpture, right through to the new media. In an alternation between shows of established artistic positions - among whom Angela Glajcar, 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 Julia Bornefeld, Antonella Zazzera, Emanuela Fiorelli, Paolo Radi and Dana Widawski.
In order to guarantee a historical continuity to the distinct eras, various shows are dedicated to historicized artists. Several protagonists of the Italian art after 1950 have been exhibited in this way over the years, including: Fortunato Depero, Afro, Antonio Sanfilippo, Pietro Consagra, Gastone Novelli and Achille Perilli.
