Chiara Camoni's work combines a poetic conceptualism that explores time and the natural world with the acute elegance of a minimalist. Here she uses a mineral with surprising properties, ulexite, to simultaneously obscure and illuminate a simple phrase. Signed and numbered.
Chiara Camoni was born in 1974; she lives and works between Lucca and Milano (Italy). Her work has been exhibited in private galleries (Le Case d'Arte, Milano; Spazio A, Pistoia; Assab One, Milano) and in public spaces (PAC, Milano; Flash Art Museum, Trevi); She works as freelance for "Istituto per la Diffusione delle Scienze Naturali" in Napoli, attending editing of books and exhibitions in public spaces. She is interested in the relationship between art and different kinds of knowledge. She usually collaborates with others and the results are often works in progress. The most important theme is time and the ideas of change and transformation. "Time always leaves signs: on human's faces and in consciousness, on artist's drawings and in landscapes. We only know time through its signs, though we can make it tangible by taking its own rhythm and working with it."
