About

Sandra Casagrande and Roberto Recalcati work together on every piece, sometimes moving from one to the other or meeting over another, a fascinating and unusual process that has to be seen to be believed. Until 2014 they cooperated with Costa Crociere and are now represented by the Sladmore where their first show with us was sold out before the opening night.
“Ipervanitas is a reference to the traditional still life paintings of the XVII and XVIII centuries called "Vanitas" where the painters portray flowers and skulls and other ephemera in order to signify the passing of time and the delicate nature of existence. We add the prefix "Iper" because we wanted to rise above this idea and would like to think of our paintings as a celebration of the sensual fragility of life”.
