The research of Christian Fogarolli is characterized by a strong interest in the nature of identity, investigated through different perspectives, such as the archival research. He works with different media: environmental installations, photography, sculpture, and video. His work shows connections with theories and scientific disciplines, that often and unconsciously, have used the art to progress and become science. Moreover, Fogarolli’s artworks can be contextualized within a study on image and object perception in relation to subjectivity, probing ties with the anormality and deviance. His works often sounds then out the links between normality and deviance, the relationship among different species and how the latter are usually strictly divided in private or public dimensions.
Founded in 2008 in Paris by Alberta Pane and specialized in contemporary art, the gallery energetically supports international artists promoting the conceptual force of their projects. The gallery encourages artists’ experimentation in space and urges them to work in balance with their environment. In 2017 the gallery opened its second venue in Venice, a former carpenter’s shop of 350m², transformed into an evocative exhibition space. That same year it undertook an editorial venture: Edizioni Alberta Pane, a series of publications that reinforces the role of the gallery as promoter of the artistic activity, fostering the public fruition, and the relationship of artists with institutions, collectors and editorial production.
