Italian sculptor and installation artist, Annalù Boeretto, explores chemical and physical substances to create a feeling of metamorphosis to penetrate the mystery of her creations. By assembling incongruous elements and resin glass, Boeretto creates sculptures associated with nature, movement through water and most famously with butterflies.
Annalù, (A. Boeretto) was born in San Donà di Piave (Venice, Italy) in 1976. For several years she has been developing a sculpture and installation work in Italy and abroad. She belongs to that species of artists for whom dominating matter, chemical, physical substances, is part of a wider exploring process, which no doubt involves art, but also the less palpable dimensions of the soul.
In her works is a feeling of metamorphosis, of transition. A disciple of metamorphosis, intent on penetrating the mysteries of creation, the artist able to assemble incongruous elements such as resins and paper, bark and glass wool, bitumen and sand, cement and roots, in order to create new realities, worlds suspended and imaginary architecture where alchemy is lightness. Her work features deeply lyrical and evocative characteristics, but also a huge formal impact, with images of involving power and exalted symbolic allure.
Annalủ, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice (1999), lives and works in her “palafitte” home by the river Piave in Passarella di San Donà di Piave, Venice. Since 2001 her works have been shown in numerous personal and collective exhibits in Italy and abroad. Among them: the Venice Biennale in 2001 and 2011; Frozen Istant, Parkview Art Gallery Hong Kong+ Italian Consulate in HK 2016; A Drop of Sunshine in cold Water at the Gallery on Fifth, Naples, Florida USA, Simulacri at the Gagliardi Gallery (Siena, Italy) and Frozen Moments at the Parkview Art Gallery in Hong Kong in 2015; Liquida at the Davico Gallery in 2014 in Torin, Codex 2013 and De Rerum Natura 2012 at Gagliardi Gallery (Siena), and Legendary Nature at the Red Elation Gallery in Hong Kong, 2013; Unfoldin at the Dac Gallery, Los Angeles in 2008, Fluttuazioni 2009 and Reverie 2011 at the Forni Gallery in Bologna.
