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.
