Carla Guagliardi (*1956, Rio de Janeiro) has lived and worked alternately in Berlin and Rio de Janeiro since 1997. In her sculptural work she focuses on the inner conditions of life, examining the body as a pulsating entity. In closed systems she shows in an aesthetically simple way dependencies of pressure and counter-pressure. The artist works with industrial materials such as aluminium tubes, glass or steel, which she juxtaposes without any strong processing steps, thus experimenting with the similarity of their properties.
In 2006 Carla Guagliardi was part of our big anniversary exhibition on 60 years of Haus am Waldsee “Anstoß Berlin – Art makes World”.
