Atelier Giuliano Pedretti

Atelier Giuliano Pedretti (1924 - 2012)

The oeuvre of Swiss sculptor Giuliano Pedretti is characterised by a ‘breathtaking artistic development’ (NZZ). His visionary Schizo sculptures are without equal in the world of art. By introducing a space separating the head and body halves of his figures, he exposes the schizophrenic disposition of human beings and the times we live in. The spatial separation serves to create a volume that seems almost weightless.
With unerring consistency Giuliano Pedretti, the last exponent of classical modernism, explored the problems of sculpture, space and existence. For him, art was never a ‘whim’. The dynamic Engadin artist was always concerned ‘about the creative aspect, creating something artificially vibrant, about a force counteracting nature, about the intellect surviving and enduring against the disintegration of the world, against death, and time’.
