Caterina Tognon is pleased to present the artistic duo Bertozzi & Casoni with a series of sculptures where Bertozzi & Casoni demonstrate their skill in working on polychrome ceramics. Formal hyperrealism meets compositional surrealism in the executive mastery of the two artists who elevate and ennoble the use of this technique in contemporary art. The use of bright, clear color, applies as much to the elements of nature – especially animals, but also plants, bones and skulls – as to waste. Not devoid of a strong irony, these sculptures reflect on our way of living and consuming, on the passage of time, on the debris we create. Remains of a human passage, “garbage”, to which Bertozzi & Casoni give new life by upsetting our common sense of beauty.
All about glassThis gallery, located near to Piazza San Marco, is owned and directed by Caterina Tognon, who collaborates with international artists and designers primarily working with glass. Occasionally the gallery takes an interest in the contemporary ceramic world. Caterina is deeply interested in investigating the cross section between fine art and applied arts. The gallery therefore retains a powerful identity and a recognisable style which has earned it a loyal following. She selects the projects personally and, depending on the theme of the exhibition, makes use of different curators. Since its founding in 1998, the gallery’s exhibition programme has favoured solo shows. Caterina also organises major exhibitions in collaboration with cultural institutions and museums in Venice and is a founding member of Cotisse.
