Anna Amadio - Liebe Farbe, / Dear Colour,
A first survey monograph on Anna Amadio’s artistic work
Exhibition at the Kunst(Zug)Haus Rapperswil-Jona: February to May 2018
With essays by Peter Stohler, Claudine Metzger and Nina Wolfensberger
The work of the internationally successful artist Anna Amadio (*1963) is varied and fascinating. Since the mid-1990s she has been working with the media of installation, sculpture, painting and drawing. From the start Amadio had an intense leaning towards colour, on the one hand, and synthetic materials on the other, which she either blows up to make air objects, vacuums into larger-than-life lanes, covers whole rooms with or heats up so as to make shrunken objects.
This richly illustrated publication provides a survey of Anna Amadio’s work of the last 25 years and brings together texts highlighting different phases in her career. In a conversation with Peter Strohler the artist talks about the genesis of her works.
