Annalù is an artist with a developing imagination in which nature devolves into liquid forms. A strongly poetic work emerges from the resin heavily used in her sculptures, played on the short circuit between the natural datum and a sumptuous artificiality, between the instant and eternity, between the apparent fragility and compactness of the material. What she focuses on is the moment of transition, the transition from one state to another through a dynamic equilibrium, sharing an attitude very similar to alchemical science aimed at the transmutation of one matter into another. The work depicts an expanded time in which the shape represents a mandala. Annalù's artistic project defies all of today's expectations; the oxymoron that supports her poetics is visible in her work: a sculpture that imposes itself in three dimensions while appearing absolutely, incontrovertibly liquid.
Annalù was born in San Donà di Piave in 1976. She graduated from the Venice Academy of Fine Arts in 1999. She regularly participates in solo and group exhibitions in Italy and abroad (the United States, Dubai, China, Hong Kong, France, Germany, Belgium, Slovenia, Switzerland, England, Singapore, and Russia). She presented her work at the Venice Biennale in 2001 and 2011, and she has received numerous awards and mentions. She was chosen to represent Italy in the international collective at the Moya Museum in Vienna in 2009. Her work has been shown in Italian and foreign museums, and it is on permanent display at MACS in Catania and MIM Museum in Motion in Piacenza. One of her sculptures was purchased by the German VAF Foundation in 2020. Throughout her career, she has worked with works of various sizes, from small to site-specific installations of monumental proportions. She splits her time between Jesolo and Dubai.
