San Donà di Piave, 1976
Annalù, Metamorphic shapes, imaginary lyrical and evocative architectures characterize the environment in which the research, realized through the assembly and alchemy of synthetic resins, glass, paper and materials, moves.
In all themes there is always present the Reverie, a sort of analytical déjà – vu that wants to hold the dream and that features non-places of water architectures, the movement of esoteric spirals of butterflies in mandala’s works or the limbo which creates her books of ice. The artwork focuses on the sense of passage, of evolution, a kind of journey to different states, different realities with a dynamic balance: a spirit of research which has many aspects in common with alchemy that turns a raw material into another.
Annalù was born in San Donà di Piave (Venice) in 1976. In 1999 she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. Her works have been shown in many important solo and group exhibitions in Italy and abroad (United States, Dubai, China, Hong Kong, France, Germany, Belgium, Slovenia, Switzerland, UK, Singapore, Russia). She took part in the Venice Biennale in 2001 and 2011 and she has won several awards and mentions. In 2009 she was selected as Italian representative in the international group exhibition at the Moya Museum in Vienna. Her works have been exhibited in Italian and foreign Museums and are part of the permanent collection of MACS in Catania and MIM – Museum in Motion Piacenza. In 2020 one of her sculptures has been acquired by the German VAF Foundation. Throughout her career she has created artworks of all sizes, from 15x15 cm to site-specific installations of monumental dimensions. She is an artist endowed with great imaginary where nature is declined in liquid forms. From the resin, which is very used in her sculptures, it comes a poetic work played on the short circuit between the natural element and a great artificiality, between the apparent fragility and consistency of the material. She focuses her work on the moment of transition between one state and another, through a dynamic balance very close to the alchemical science aimed at the transmutation of one matter into another. Annalù's artistic project is different from all contemporary art proposals; the oxymoron that underlies her poetics is evident in her work: a three-dimensional sculpture that seems absolutely, incontrovertibly liquid. She lives and works between Jesolo and Dubai.
