Gehard Demetz. Coming Out

Works by Italian sculptor Gehard Demetz can be seen as of 5th April as part of a dual solo exhibition dedicated to him and Lithuanian artist Laisvydė Šalčiūtė at LaGalleria Arte Contemporanea in the Palazzo Ducale in Mantua.

 

Both artists in this exhibition use wood in order to create their figures: Demetz in the traditional medium of sculpture, Šalčiūtė with woodcuts transferred onto canvas, which she then hand-paints. Religion, mythology, history and art are tightly interwoven in both artists' work.

 

Coming Out is to be taken literally ‒ as a venture into the portraying of human fragility made possible by art.
