London 6 March 2024 – Pasqua Wines, leading winery and ambassador for Amarone della Valpolicella and Veneto wines around the world, has today announced its support of ‘Metamorphosis: Innovation in Eco Photography & Film’, a group show of eco and sustainable artists at London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery, opening 26th May to 28th July, 2024.


Metamorphosis: Innovation in Eco Photography & Film at Saatchi Gallery is Pasqua’s first international collaboration, elevating the brand’s engagement with the arts to an international stage, following six years’ patronage of the Italian arts, which has included commissions and collaborations, such as the dream-like audio visual experience, Luna Somnium, at fuse*, and SUPERFLUO by NONE Collective during ArtVerona in 2023.

Metamorphosis will showcase four artists whose work highlights how experimentation, process innovation and relentlessly pushing boundaries can unlock eco-consciousness and impact. The four multi-media artists, Almudena Romero, Hannah Fletcher, Edd Carr and Scott Hunter, were selected on the strength of their innovative and unconventional approaches and early critical acclaim as emerging artists.

Riccardo Pasqua, CEO, said: “As we approach our centennial year, we are delighted to be supporting Saatchi Gallery to instigate this show, underscoring our cross-generational commitment to innovation, creativity and unconventional approaches. Each of the artists demonstrates what we have always believed to be true – that through experimentation and pushing boundaries we can unlock progress.

“This international collaboration builds on Pasqua’s strong heritage of arts patronage, its commitment to making art accessible to the public and its unique belief that innovation is born from a profound, appreciative knowledge of history and tradition. We believe that creativity needs to be cultivated with love and care, just like the land. Pasqua has spent almost a century innovating the future of wine production – and we couldn’t be more delighted with this pairing.”

Since 1985, Saatchi Gallery has provided an innovative platform for contemporary art. Exhibitions have presented works by largely unseen young artists, or by international artists whose work has been rarely or never exhibited in the UK. This approach has made the Gallery one of the most recognised names in contemporary art.

Pasqua’s support of the show – which is announced as family winery, Pasqua, heads into its centenary year – reflects the inherent creativity and innovation of the brand’s DNA and values, which was recognised on internationally after the company won the coveted “Innovator of the Year” Award by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, for unlocking a series of remarkable evolutions for the wine industry. The coveted award recognized Pasqua’s longstanding investment in research and innovation, which led the winery to be dubbed “laboratory of research”, by Wine Enthusiast Magazine and is the result of three generations of stewardship by the Pasqua family.

Hannah Fletcher is an artist based in London, working primarily with photographic materials and processes, and is the founder of Sustainable Darkroom.

Fletcher also co-directs London Alternative Photography Collective, is a facilitator of sustainability within the arts, and has been mentoring and tutoring in ecologically minded art practices since 2019.

Almudena Romero is a British and Spanish visual artist based in London. Her practice uses photography to explore ways of representing, seeing and understanding. Romero’s works focus on how perception affects existence and how art shapes perception.  Almudena Romero holds an MA in Photography from the University of the Arts London and a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice in Art, Design and Communications. She is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and has delivered courses, lectures and talks at universities, museums and institutions nationally.

Edd Carr is an artist based in the UK. Adapting photographic processes into moving image – his work depicts our relationship to ecological crisis and the wider nonhuman world.

Scott Hunter is a multidisciplinary artist based in Kinghorn, UK. He studied MFA Contemporary Art Practice at Edinburgh College of Art.
