CHIARA CORDESCHI
« < >

Arbo-Real, 2020

In many ancient cultures the tree occurs as a sacred symbol, often assimilated to the growth and development of the person. Both are living creatures that have roots, vulnerable to change, naturally tend towards the sky and self-realization. This consideration is the starting point of Chiara Cordeschi. Through metamorphosis, the analogy between forms and meanings, the natural question remains cyclically implicit as a resolutive and shared space between human and non-human living beings. The artistic works of Cordeschi leads us on a journey to another dimension. We see a tree crying, an agave undergoing a hybrid death, a bark of skin becoming a map of time.
Arbo-real guides us towards an internal architecture imperceptible to the naked eye which, like a poem, simultaneously embraces the solid roots of the past and the uncertainty of the future to show the present.
