closed Claudia Comte. How to grow and always have the same shape

Curated by: Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Marianna Vecellio

The show

The Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art organizes and hosts the first personal exhibition in an Italian public museum by the Swiss artist Claudia Comte (Grancy, 1983). Developed in close contact with the artist and curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Marianna Vecellio, the exhibition will be inaugurated on October 30th.
Starting from the observation of nature and its changing patterns, the artist creates large environmental installations that incorporate the world from the perspective of the digital experience. Sinking his interest in urgently topical topics such as climate change, ecology and global pollution, the artist also tells the memory of materials and the wisdom of manual work. The main body of Comte's works is represented by these installations, but his work also includes sculpture and painting, as well as extensive multimedia installations .

All the projects of the Swiss artist share in the conception phase a series of rules, as well as points of reference, which clearly link one work to another. From this process matrix derives a methodical but at the same time dynamic approach characterized by a minimalist attitude.
Born and raised in Grancy, a small village near Lausanne at the foot of Mont Tendre, one of the highest peaks of the Jura Massif, a limestone mountain range located north of the Alps, the Swiss artist in her works expresses a strong autobiographical reference .
