Isabella Bortolozzi opened her gallery with the intention of presenting emerging and young international artists, and the desire to create a community of equally passionate and forward-thinking artists. The gallery features artists from various disciplines but, somewhat unusually, never painters. Instead, sculpture, sound installations, video-art and photography are often the predominant disciplines on display.
In a time when many of the city’s galleries seem to be catering to those simply looking for living room wall hangings, Isabella Bortolozzi doesn’t hand her visitor a congenial solution. Instead, she attempts to present the exhibited works as a series of questions to the viewer and wishes to convey the importance and beauty of art that challenges and intrigues.
