A window installation by Anna Galtarossa will be featured among acclaimed artists Marilyn Minter, Laurie Simmons, Shantell Martin, and Anna-Wili Highfield at Tiffany & Co.'s home collection at Milan’s Salone del Mobile.
Artnet's Christine Chu writes "Using familiar materials in an unconventional way, Anna Galtarossa, is an Italian artist who creates nuanced, totemic constructions. “There’s always a narrative in my head with whatever I’m working on,” Galtarossa told artnet News when asked to explain her installation. “I started thinking about the greenhouse as a source of heat and light—that’s why it’s an orange color. I saw it also as something that’s sacred, a symbol of our human qualities of cultivating and nurturing.” Galtarossa, who often uses organic shapes and found materials in her work, wanted to create something that was in dialogue with the graphic lines and precious material of the silver Tiffany & Co. greenhouse. “When I pick materials for my work, I end up disassembling or using them in a salvaged way—so that it will be abstract but elegant,” the artist said. “It’s a delicate dance of material.”
