Biography

Silvia Celeste Calcagno (Genoa, 1974) makes antithesis the key of her poetic approach. On one hand, the quintessential material, clay; on the other, lightness, photographic images and video. The contents of her works, performance installations, encapsulate the same dichotomy: beauty and pain, flesh and soul, blood and thought.

In the obsessive photographic reproduction of herself, Silvia Celeste Calcagno speaks of life by means of death; of dream by means of nightmare; of pain by means of the body. Searching for herself and losing herself in her own reflected image.
