Gli immediati dintorni (The immediate Surroundings), Chiara Camoni’s solo exhibition at Nomas Foundation, Rome, brings together works produced by the artist over her entire career, some of them never exhibited before. Through a dialog between sculpture, installations, performances, videos, photographic works and texts, the show focuses on the themes that characterize Camoni’s practice, such as the stream of time, nature and its generative power, rituals, human bonds and relationships. Curated by Cecilia Canziani and Ilaria Gianni, the exhibition is conceived as a work in progress, adopting slowness as a time for the creation, the fruition and the reception of the works on display. As the artist herself has stated, “when I start a new cycle of works […] I follow a stream of associations, connections, intuitions. […] From this tangle, then, will derive a shape, an order, a position. And then a line, a circle, a triangle, a little ball, a flower, a grid, a sequence, the fingers of an hand, a face, a constellation, a time”. The performance La neve gialla (2013), presented before the opening, acted as a sort of prelude to the visit and a proper preparation of the space for the arrival of the audience.
