closed Claudia Comte. How to Grow and Still Stay the Same Shape

Curated by: Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Marianna Vecellio

The show

Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea organizes and presents the first Italian museum exhibition dedicated to the Swiss artist Claudia Comte (Grancy, 1983). Developed closely with the artist and drafted by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Marianna Vecellio, the exhibition will be inaugurated on October 30.
Starting from the observation of nature and its changing patterns, the artist creates large-scale environmental installations that embody the world from the perspective of a form of consciousness primarily shaped through the digital experience. Examining current issues such as climate change, ecology and global pollution, her work also narrates the memory of materials and the wisdom of art and craft. These large installations represent the main group of Comte’s works, but her work also includes sculpture and painting, as well as extensive multimedia installations.

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