Cristian Chironi

Nuoro, 1974. Lives in Italy

Chironi’s art focuses on the alteration and decontextualization of given images and visual commonplaces, transforming them into photographs, performances, videos, happenings, sculptures and collages. The methodological rigor adopted by the artist transforms all his work into a physical rather than a conceptual challenge. Chironi uses subtraction and the accumulation of information as regulatory tools, as well as performance to animate the initial image. In his works, opposites such as reality and fiction, conflict and integration, presence and absence meet one another in the form of narrative short circuits. His work has been exhibited in art spaces and festivals in Italy and abroad, including Xing/Raum, Bologna, MAN, Nuoro (2014), Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Villa Croce, Genoa (2015), Fondation Cartier, Paris (2011), and Kaai Theater, Brussels (2012).
