SOLO SHOW curated by Annamaria Maggi
The title of the exhibition recalls the spirit that permeates all the works of the artist.
A journey through a fairytale world, which comes to life in a context where what seems mild in itself hides a secret and where the tragic becomes “soft”: the tenderness is all for those animals, rabbits, sheep, otters, pigs, used by Man, slaughtered, the remains of which are unused, find in the artist’s work a new dignity.
Chiara Lecca weaves tight relations between everyday objects and childhood with elements of organic animal origin. The latter, in a game based on the ambiguity of their meaning, are de-contextualized and reinserted in unusual settings or surreal or even altered in their socio-cultural function.
Implementing an ironic reflection and at the same time critical on the common relationship with the natural sphere, Chiara Lecca holds a bond as elementary as effective with the viewer, at this point forced to question himself about its feelings.
