Chiara Dynys was born in Mantua and works in Milan. Since the beginning of her activity, in the early nineties, she has acted on two main themes, both of which can be traced back to a single reaction to reality: identify in our world and in form the presence and sense of inconsistency, permutation, the “threshold” that allows the mind to move from human reality to an almost metaphysical scenario. To do this, she uses apparently eclectic materials, ranging from light to glass, mirrors, ceramics, castings, fabric, video, and photography.
Chiara Dynys has been represented in many solo and group exhibitions in important museums and public and private cultural institutions in Italy and around the world. Among the most important personal exhibitions and permanent collections: Galerie de France 2, Paris 1993; Galleria Monica De Cardenas, Milan 1993; Galleria Weber, Turin 1994; Galleria Massimo Martino, Mendrisio 1998; Galleria Fumagalli, Bergamo 2002; Accademia di Architettura, Mendrisio 2006; Chiesa del Santo Volto di Gesù, Rome 2006; Palazzo Reale, Milan 2008; Museo Carlo Bilotti – Aranciera di Villa Borghese, Rome 2008; Villa Panza, Varese 2009; ZKM – Museum fur Neue Kunst, Karlsruhe 2009; Archivio Centrale dello Stato, Rome 2010; Galleria Laure-Marie Fleisch, Rome 2010; Università Bocconi, Milan 2012; GNAM – Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, Rome 2013; Museo Poldi Pezzoli, Milan 2013; Arkhangelskoye – VII Biennale di Mosca, Moscow 2017; Cortesi Gallery, Lugano 2018; MASI, Lugano 2018.
Currently, Dynys is showing in the large collective 100% ITALY at Palazzo Barolo (Torino) with the work “Look at You”, in the section “Internationality” curated by Giorgio Verzotti, included as one of the most important and interesting artists of this last season of Italian Art. Particularly significant is her 2019 calendar, with a large solo exhibition in both Testaccio pavilions in Rome and the honor of exhibiting in the Four Doors room of the Correr Museum in Venice at the same time as the 2019 Art Biennale.
