Anna Galtarossa’s work is concerned with “transforming feelings into places”. Her sprawling, minutely detailed installations and sculptures feature a vast accumulation of imagery and objects, from dime store plastic toys, to tilting architectural constructions, and fetishistic totems made of family snapshots and human hair. She builds up her installations like oil paintings; each develops slowly and is the outcome of a long process of research and reflection. Her work offers us a complex mythology encoded within many layers and details. It often represents a self-portrait of sorts; an archaeology of life as it is lived.
