Elisa Seitzinger is a name that is one of the most talked-about on the contemporary art scene. As a curious and eclectic illustrator, she has managed to give voice and visual power to an extraordinary image.
Hers is an unmistakable and fascinating world, resulting from composite and multiple fascinations: Seitzinger is dazzled and dazzling, she draws from and dialogues with sacred and courtly medieval art, revisits bestiaries, models Byzantine mosaics and Orthodox icons, she introduces us to the world of tarot cards, she looks at the esoteric and classical iconography, she is inspired by ex-voto and primitive paintings. A deep and precise research, never dictated by chance, always elegant and full of meaning.
The exhibit in Domodossola (Verbania, Piedmont) represents the artist's first solo exhibit in northern Italy, between the large centers of Milan and Turin, a few kilometers from the Swiss border. A real return to her origins, in the Ossola alpine valleys, where Seitzinger was born and raised. From Saturday November 12th, 2022 to Sunday February 5th, 2023 – there will be an immersive journey between the sacred and the profane that winds through the imposing and solemn atmospheres of the historic Collegio Mellerio Rosmini, an institute dedicated to Antonio Rosmini Serbati (1797-1855), priest, author of writings on ascetics, theology, philosophy, pedagogy, one of the major Italian thinkers of the nineteenth century.
