Angelica Bergamini
'Sassi Stone' Medium

2010

About

Stones: immutability, eternity, abstract shape. With hundreds of meters of iron wire woven in "Sasso" (Stone) is a sculpture that has the shape of a solid weighty object, but which traps light and emptiness within its layered and textured surface. The forms take their color and sheen from that of the wire. In the Asian garden stone is an important element: it represents the macrocosm into the microcosm, and the immutable. 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 and a solo exhibition in 2016 at the Ivy Brown Gallery in New York City. She is currently working on a new video series based on the animation of a selection of her previous works on paper.
