Angela ANZI

Angela Anzi’s (*1981) artistic practice is characterized by a multimodal approach and an analytical interest in the genuine expressiveness of material. In her sculptures, performances and installations, she overturns traditional conceptions that arise from the shape and the material of the objects shown. In this way, she provokes material synergies and continuous shifts in meaning via movement, touch and intermedial mirroring. The result is unusual sensory impressions, within which the civilizationally learned filter mechanisms of our sensorial attention seem to be immobilized, and reality and fantasy become one.
