Chiara Dynys. Ph. Vincenzo Lucente

Chiara Dynys

Chiara Dynys was born in Mantua and works in Milan. Since the beginning of its activity, in the early ’90s, she has acted on two main currents, both attributable to a single attitude towards reality: to identify the presence and sense of the anomaly, the variant, the “doorstep” that allows the mind to move from human reality to an almost metaphysical scenario. In order to achieve this, she uses eclectic materials, ranging from light to glass, mirrors, ceramics, castings, fabric, video and photography.

In 2019 she had important personal exhibitions, such as Sabra Beauty Everywhere curated by Gabriella Belli at the Museo Correr in Venice in the context of the 2019 Venice Biennale. An upcoming monography will be published by Skira Special Edition and curated by Giorgio Verzotti, for which she also designed the case in plexiglass and silver mirror, referring to some of her previous works which have been very significant for her career.

She has participated in several personal and group exhibitions in important museums, public and private Italian and international cultural institutions. Among the most important, Musee d’Art Moderne, Saint’Etienne (1992); Galerie de France 2, Paris (1993); CIAC, Montreal (1997); Museum Bochum, Bochum (2003); Kunstmuseum, Bonn (2004); Wolfsberg Executive Development Center, Wolfsberg (2005);  Rotonda di Via Besana, Milan (2007); Carlo Bilotti Museum – Orangery of Villa Borghese, Rome (2008); ZKM – Museum fur Neue Kunst, Karlsruhe (2009); Archivi centrali di Stato, Rome (2010); Poldi Pezzoli Museum, Milan (2013); Arkhangelskoye – VII Moscow Biennale, Moscow (2017); ICAE Armenia, Yerevan (2018); Mattatoio Testaccio, Rome (2019); Correr Museum, Venice (2019).
