Marcella Giannini is an Italo-Colombian artist and illustrator based in Rome. She has a BA in printmaking from the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome, a MA in printmaking from the CIEC Foundation in Spain and is currently finishing her MA studies in Papermaking at the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome.
Her work mainly combines papermaking techniques, textile art and natural dyes experiments. In her latest works, she uses her own-made paper thread to create tapestries with geometric patterns.
At Copper Leg Art Residency, she will combine textile techniques with natural dyes to create a functional sculpture that addresses the theme of inhabiting and community. The art object will be presented this Saturday at Rae Schoolhouse during the event “Sirakas”.
Rodolfo Liprandi (b. Trieste 1994) it’s an Italian sculptor who graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Poland, where he currently lives.
A close union, a dialogue between man and nature takes place in Rodolfo Liprandi’s environmental art and Land Artworks, site-specific interventions of an installation feature that pay homage to the wild world.
The works created by assembling the branches collected in the surrounding environment, subject to the passage of time and weather conditions, participate in the cyclical nature of life to finally rejoin the earth.
From 2018 Liprandi has started various collaborations with entities such as nature reserves, associations, and festivals, creating installations with the aim of raising awareness and educating the viewer to respect and protect the nature that surrounds us.
To the delight of the inhabitants of Vaskjala, he created two statues, “The Guard of the Wormhole Road” and “The Crowned Head”, depicting several significant animals related to Estonian stories and myths, as well as the local area.
We will open the sculptures created by Rodolfo in Vaskjala at this MiniFest :

18.00 Opening of Bartosz Janczak’s Sculpture in front of Rae Culture Center
18:30 Introduction of Bartosz Janczak’s art at the Rae Culture Center
Bartosz is a designer with a decade of experience, recently escaping from the computer screen into public spaces, where he’s creating sculptures. He is originally from Poland, but lives and works mostly in London.
His structures are inspired by military defense structures, brutalist architecture and eastern block monuments. His objects are aggressors, they are tearing apart the air with it’s edges, other times they are bonded in a deadlock. Visually his art is very raw in it’s approach and posture. Heavy, blocky shapes interact with each other, intertwined in light and soft-spoken compositions. Always white, gives the audience a resemblance of antique in an almost spiritual experience.
During a stay at Copper Leg Art Residency, he is focused on creating a monument of devotion for the new world’s society. Inspired by mythology and a vast variety of Estonian beings, deities and legendary heroes he decided to create an altar responding to moods of modern civilization and it’s abstract world of manufactured needs.
Friend of Bartosz, half-Catalan, and semi-German, lives and works near Barcelona. Kim is also a sculptor, but this time supporting friend Bartosz as an assistant and engineer of his sculpture built during Cooper Leg Residency. Kim mainly is focusing on his art on working with wood, metal, and stone.
Everyone is welcome to open the sculpture at the Rae Cultural Center on Friday 18.00!
