There are moments in life that create a before and an after.
Venice is the personal and artistic watershed of Aymone Poletti.
After the success of the Venetian exhibition PRECIOUS: Memory \ Growth / Life, the artist returns to her native Ticino to propose a synthesis of her twenty-year career and her most recent production: monotypes, works with salt, engravings.
Aymone’s intimate works, always suspended between dream and abstraction, with the refinement that is her distinctive mark: the memories, the suggestions, the “signs” that Venice left indelible in her memory.
With the beauty, the contradictions, the intrinsic fragility and all the poetry of the Lagoon.
Among the works in the exhibition, there will be her recent works carried out with the crystallization of salt.
These are interventions on photographs and eggshells, which through special processes of boiling and crystallization with Japanese salts and inks created crystalline incrustations as if they were slowly lichens grown on a rocky surface.
On the other hand, the other important part of Aymone’s artistic narrative is entrusted to the monotype: a process that, while remaining within the printing limits, has the peculiar characteristic of exploiting the chalcographic matrix not for a multiplication of the image, but rather to obtain original and unique impressions.
Venezia che muore,
Venezia appoggiata sul mare,
la dolce ossessione degli ultimi suoi giorni tristi,
Venezia, la vende ai turisti.
Aymone Poletti was born in Sorengo (Lugano) in 1978 and has been exhibiting professionally since 2000.
She studied in Mendrisio where she graduated from the Academy of Architecture, the same place as by the architects Aurelio Galfetti, Alfredo Pini and Peter Zumthor.
During the same period, she took part in the art classes held by Harald Szeemann and those of design by Antonio Citterio and Bruno Monguzzi.
She won several selections, on the occasion of exhibitions dedicated to young artists, as well as a scholarship from the city of Lugano.
Active member of Visarte, in the first half of 2015, she was artist in residence at the Cité internationale des Arts in Paris and attended the Académie de la Grande Chaumière.
Recently, in collaboration with Artrust, she has exhibited in Venice as part of the VAP (Venice Art Projects).
Her works can be found in both public and private collections, in Switzerland and abroad.
