Verified profile


Chiara Dynys is one of the most important contemporary Italian artists, whose work has always been characterized by particular attention to dialogue with historical space, both in its architectural and discursive dimensions. In continuity with this perspective, Lo Stile is an exhibition and a site-related project, designed specifically for Ca' Pesaro and at the same time a reference to the work of Piet Mondrian and Neoplasticism. An exhibition of great visual power, apparently provocative but in reality revealing the centrality of the form of language in art.


In response to a poetics that has always refused any stylistic definition, Dynys reinterprets the linguistic synthesis of Dutch modernism through a series of new immersive environments in which light and matter redesign the story of reality. The artist writes in this regard: “The reference to Mondrian wants to make explicit my statement that the form of language, even when style is denied, as in my work, is central. The installation that gives the exhibition its title is in fact an ambiguous work, which intentionally takes up the compositions of the theosophist artist but at the same time denies them, because it is made of stone and metal, that is, of present and resistant materials, what Mondrian shunned more than anything." “Opposed to this, a group of colored methacrylate books from the Tutto series provides further insights into my particular and contradictory idea of style, while the second large room is entirely occupied by the Gate of Heaven installation, where the luminous skeleton of a large door seems to derive from the curves, equally luminous, which spread across the floor according to the progress of the gravitational waves of the universe”. Thus, the close vision in time and space of these three works speaks of a "style" that can easily be denied, but to be renewed: everything becomes "style", if the disparate language with which it is expressed manages to become form.
