Artist details

Category: Contemporary Art


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.
