About

Know thyself is sourced in the words of Krishnamurti, “The beginning of freedom is self-knowledge”. This atmospheric body of works on paper using acrylic, ink, pigment inkjet print, represents the journey of self-discovery, visiting the unconscious while glimpsing the process of becoming ourselves. Like pages of a journal, one story visually unfolds and leads you to the next. We are honored to premiere three videos in this series that bring Know thyself to another level.

Angelica’s multi-layered works are informed by her ongoing efforts to create a less reactive and more responsive presence in the world. They act as the muse to meditations on the many facets of surrender, empowerment, reverence, and love that exist in ourselves, and in our relation to a greater whole.

Angelica Bergamini was born in Viareggio (Italy) in 1973. She holds a degree from the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence (Italy) and she has spent long periods of residency in Spain at the University of Granada and at the Museo National Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid.

Bergamini explores the meaning of colors in an open dialogue with human emotions and natural shapes, while her experimental approach manifests through different medias: from painting and paper-cuts assemblages to video and sculptural installations.

Her works have been presented internationally as part of collective shows in New York (Tanja Grunert; White Box; BRIC Arts Media; Photo New York), London (Chelsea space), Paris (Galerie Arnaud Lefebvre), Stockholm (Färgfabriken) and in Hong Kong (Kwai Fung Hin Art Gallery), besides being part of several private collections worldwide. Bergamini’s most recent shows include her participation to the “Il volo e`una scrittura del corpo nel cielo” - altered book project: 9 artists for a novel by C.Gagliardo, published by Hacca Edizioni, a project curated by Pietro Gagliano`, first launched at Salone Internazionale del Libro in Turin 2015 (Italy) and at Writers Literary Festival 2016 in Milan. She is currently working on a new video series based on the animation of a selection of her previous works on paper.
