Hermann Josef Runggalder: Suspended Time
Solo Exhibition: iSculpture Art Gallery San Gimignano | July 21-August 18 , 2018
Opening: July, 21th 2018, 6 p.m.
iSculpture Art Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition “Suspended Time” by Hermann Josef Runggaldier, which will be held in our venue in San Gimignano.
“The artist tries to grasp moments and situations in which both those observed, the future subjects of his sculptures, and he himself are waiting, at the airport for instance. He studies them meticulously, observing the attitudes, postures and facial expressions of these oblivious, anonymous actors. These are ordinary, everyday scenes, in which the characters are simply living their day-to-day lives, without posing in any way. The artist isn’t even noticed and never crosses the boundaries of the personal sphere.”
The exhibition catalogue will be available for the opening on Saturday July 21 at 6 p.m. Exhibition’s catalogue is available: Browse it online!
We will be glad to welcome You,

Following his first exhibition in 2014, iSculpture Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition “Soul” by Gerald Moroder, which will be held at Museum of Chiusa (Capuchin monastery): Nine new works – small and large sculptures and sculptural panels – realized between 2016 and 2017.
The title Soul highlights the theme that runs through his work, so that the layout of the exhibition is crossed by a vital tension and an innate yearning turned to a spiritual dimension. His human figures, emaciated and essential in form, are stretched outward looking, looking for a way, a revelation. They are images of human essence, timeless figures, devoid of characteristics that connect to a space and an era, are archaic contemporaries. He comes from Val Gardena and yet he is not tied to the wood carving tradition of his valley; in fact, he works with a mixture of sand, iron and porphyry stone – materials that, in themselves, maintain history. Even the material has embarked on its own exploration: It consists of particles, becomes stratified and oxidizes thus abandoning part of itself in order to welcome the new.

iSculpture Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition “Journey into synthesis”by Wilhelm Heiliger that will be held at the headquarters in San Gimignano (SI). The Catalogue, printed by the Gallery, will be presented during the opening.
iSculpture Gallery is pleased to offer its spaces to Wilhelm’s real yet fantastic works. We could ask ourselves what induces a gallery which deals exclusively with sculptures to present works that are apparently so far-removed from its usual proposal. The answer to this question lies in the desire to emphasise the importance of the relationship between shape and colour, concepts which are an absolute part of sculpture. The gallery also wants to open up to other forms of expression, to which alternative projects will be regularly dedicated in the future, highlighting once again the absolute non-existence of boundaries to beauty and art.
Opening on October the first at 6.00 p.m. with the presence of the artist.

Anche quest’anno il MiBAC organizza “La Notte dei Musei”, l’evento di respiro europeo che, dalle 20.00 alle 2.00 apre gratuitamente le porte di musei ed aree archeologiche, permettendo un’emozionante ed insolita fruizione del patrimonio artistico italiano per tutti coloro che non riescono a farlo nei consueti orari di visita. In questa occasione il Museo Civico Archeologico e della Collegiata di Casole d’Elsa sarà aperto gratuitamente dalle 21 alle 23.
iSculpture Gallery ha sempre partecipato in vario modo negli anni scorsi alla “Notte dei Musei” a San Gimignano. Purtroppo, ad oggi, non ci è stato comunicato nessun evento nel borgo turrito. Quindi ci troverete, con il solito calice di vino in mano, nella nostra sede di Casole d’Elsa per un’apertura notturna straordinaria…Vi aspettiamo!
This year the Ministry of Culture is organizing “The Night of Museums“, a European scope event that offers a free entrance to museums and archaeological sites, allowing an exciting and unusual use of the Italian artistic heritage for everyone that missed the this opportunity during the usual visiting hours. On this occasion, the Archaeological Museum and the Collegiate Church of Casole d’Elsa will be open free of charge from 21 to 23.
iSculpture Gallery has always taken part to this event in San Gimignano. Unfortunately, to date, the City of San Gimignano has not informed us about its attendance and for this reason we will open the doors of our new venue in Casole d’Elsa. We will be glad to meet all visitors, with a glass of wine and our pleasure to discuss about arts… See you there!
