Chiara Camoni / Bettina Buck with the words of Cecilia Canziani and a lecture by Chiara Frugoni

Chiara Frugoni’s research has been a source of inspiration throughout the whole project with similarities between the place and the reflections of the seminar and the themes she dealt with, on  Chiara of Assisi and on the role of the convent as a place not only of exclusion, but also of emancipation.

The course was developed in three moments: collective readings, a public lecture and finally, to give a rhythm to the thought, the collective action of the work at the loom, to which – over the course of the months – many different hands of craftswomen, artists and curators have alternated, leaving traces of their work, creating a carpet that is also the fulcrum of the exhibition. Since it is not possible to narrate the seminars in the form of an exhibition, Self-portraits represents an attempt to redistribute, through a series of works and further moments of in-depth study, the sense of a constructed path of relationships between people and areas of knowledge, with the

Chiara Frugoni’s research has been a source of inspiration throughout the whole project with similarities between the place and the reflections of the seminar and the themes she dealt with, on  Chiara of Assisi and on the role of the convent as a place not only of exclusion, but also of emancipation.

The course was developed in three moments: collective readings, a public lecture and finally, to give a rhythm to the thought, the collective action of the work at the loom, to which – over the course of the months – many different hands of craftswomen, artists and curators have alternated, leaving traces of their work, creating a carpet that is also the fulcrum of the exhibition. Since it is not possible to narrate the seminars in the form of an exhibition, Self-portraits represents an attempt to redistribute, through a series of works and further moments of in-depth study, the sense of a constructed path of relationships between people and areas of knowledge, with the words of books and the works of different and distant authors.

The works by Chiara Camoni and Bettina Buck in the exhibition invite us to reflect on the relationship between body and space, on the way bodies build environments, gestures generate worlds, worlds tell relationships, and relationships are a way to reinvent the ways of being together, producing, exhibiting.
The gestures and voices of those who participated in the meetings are guarded and represented by a carpet presented in the exhibition and woven under the supervision of the weaver Paola Aringes.

Around this object, which is also a place, a corpus of unpublished works by Chiara Camoni makes room for the works made by Bettina Buck between 2010 and 2017.

United by a common reflection on sculpture and a dialogical attitude, the works of the two artists offer themselves as points of view on each other’s work.
