Collection: Roberta Gaattel

Introduction: Roberta Gaattel grew up in Venice, where she graduated in Art History (BA at the Academy of Fine Arts), in Philosophy (MA at Ca'Foscar University) and where she continued to study, specializing in Intercultural and Postcolonial Studies (MA in Teaching Italian Language and Culture; Modern and Contemporary History Courses) which led her to work first in Pedagogy and then in
Gender Research. Gaattel's growth has been marked by a constant relationship between study and drawing, which she perceives as complementary. She has never been able to separate her academic research from her artistic production: they have constantly fed and stimulated each other, helping her decipher reality and transmit content. Her relationship with Culture is greedy, dynamic, and omnivorous: She continues to explore and learn. And she continued to be amazed.

Work focuses on the underlying theme of her research, which is relational and communicative. In all her works, she tries to study the relationship between Subject and Object, our private world, and the world in which we live. People and the reality they belong to are both complex products of self and hetero-relationships. She is fascinated by dualisms, the oscillation of human impulses: the attention to oneself and the love for each other, the attempt at dialogue, and the tragic epilogue of incommunicability. She also researched contact between different shapes and languages on
the paper: in her drawings, she worked on both sides of the sheet. Her current research area includes the role of stereotypes in the construction of ideas, the deconstruction of rhetorical devices, the invisibility of discriminated categories in cultural space, social media, and knowledge building.

She has experience working as a history and philosophy teacher in Italian public schools, collaborating with a Venetian Publishing House on an editorial project, and is currently researching women's studies at the University of York. Among her exhibitions: 'The 101st Young Artists Collective" of Bevilacqua La Masa
Foundation (Venice) and "perASPERA Festival of Contemporary Arts" (Bologna).
