Sara Berti

Sculptor | Paintings

Sara Berti uses different materials for sculptures, graphic works and paintings. In 2005, still as a student, she was commissioned to realize a 5m sculpture – made of bronze and travertin stone – in front of the City Hospital in Ferrara, Italy. After finishing the Academy in Bologna she started a series of investigations and also international exhibitions on the topic of the body. Based on the famous Italian tradition of figurative sculpture, her work concentrates on showing the continuity between antique tradition and contemporary self-expression.

Sara Berti graduated as a sculptor at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna, Italy. She lives and works in Sharjah/United Arab Emirates. She was invited to exhibitions in Italy, Hungary, Germany, Serbia, Denmark, Turkey, and in the United Arab Emirates. She also represented Italian art in Hungary for the Italian Pavilion of the 54th Venice Biennial.
