Sarah Margnetti starring Kiki Kogelnik
SALTS, Hauptstrasse 12, 4127 Birsfelden, Switzerland
Having a background in decorative painting, Sarah Margnetti (born in 1983 in Monthey, lives and works in Brussels and Lausanne) went on to get a technical training at The Van der Kelen-Logelain Institute in Brussels.
For her show at SALTS, the artist is showcasing large landscape paintings which explore her interest in optical illusions and abstract motives. In addition, Margnetti, together with the curators, selected some drawings, paintings and sculptures of the late Austrian Pop artist Kiki Kogelnik (1935-1997, lived and worked in New York and Vienna), with whom she shares a similar formal and conceptual vocabulary, despite the half century that separates them.
