Camilla Grimaldi is delighted to announce our representation of Goldschmied & Chiari.
Sara Goldschmied (1975) and Eleonora Chiari (1971) have been working as an artistic duo since 2001 under the name goldiechiari till 2013. They live and work between Rome and Milan.
Goldschmied & Chiari using installation, video and photography, explore the concepts of history and memory in terms of the division between amnesia and deletion/reconstruction and reflection.
Analysing specific moments in recent political history, they demonstrate the opacity of memory, together with the strategies employed to wipe out truths or create new ones. They also focus on sexuality and female identity interpreted as the products of real and imaginary experiences imposed by society and ambient culture.
They have had solo exhibitions at Villa Croce Museum, Genoa (forthcoming); Cac Passerelle in Brest, France; MACRO Museum,Rome; Museion, Bolzano; and Centro d’Arti Visive Pescheria,Pesaro, Italy. In 2012 they won the Castello di Rivoli Museum prize for best Italian young artists. The duo has achieved international note through their many exhibitions around the world, working with prestigious institutions and museums among which: the MoCa Shanghai (2010), theMusée de Grenoble (2007) and Castello di Rivoli, Turin (2012), Mambo Museum, Bologna, and their work has been presented at the biennials in Venice (2009) Berlin (2006) Dublin (2011) Selestat (2013). Tel Aviv (2010).
Camilla Grimaldi will present their first UK solo show in 2015.
