25th April- 15th May 2014
Private View Saturday 26th April, 4-8pm
Chiara is a filmmaker working with animation, experimental film, documentary and sound to explore the ways in which we perceive, remember, articulate and preserve personal and collective histories and place through the filter of memory and the imagination. Her work has included collaborations with performance artists, composers, musicians and writers, and has been shown in a number of venues including national and international film festivals, galleries and site specific events.
Her work is informed greatly by an attentive and dedicated observation of the real, the process of looking being at the core of her practice.
For this exhibition at Bookartbookshop Chiara will be showing a selection of her works on paper- drawings, watercolours, collages, photographs, puppets and everything that constitutes the invisible scaffolding to her work on film and is a celebration of matter- in this case paper- as a point of departure for incredible flights of the imagination.
This will also be the official launch of "The Girl With The Sea For A Dress and other tales" a very limited edition book of fairytales for all ages, written by Bird Radio and illustrated by Chiara.
