About the exhibition:
Segantini chose Baba Uffer as his model when he lived in Savognin. We meet the Savognin woman in many of his paintings, mostly depicted in a blue woolen dress and heavy shoes. At the same time, she was the nanny and housemaid of the Segantini family, who served him even after Segantini's death, before she married herself and lived with her husband and 4 children in St. Gallen. From 23 December 2022 to 26 February 2023, the pop-up exhibition in the premises of Savogniner Uffer AG, which are indirect descendants of Baba, tells the story of this woman, who, although so present staged by Segantini, has almost fallen into oblivion as a person. The exhibition sheds light on the life of Baba Uffer, her development as a model, and refers to the process of creating the paintings, when Baba's wife Bice stood as a model and Segantini's wife Bice read to them.
Exhibition from 23 December 2022 to 26 February 2023, open Friday to Sunday 4 - 8 pm.
The vernissage was on December 17th.
