COSTANZA CANDELORO
Costanza Candeloro uses writing as a generative element and research subject. Through deconstruction as a tool of investigation, the texts she wrote or she appropriated of are usually transformed into words, signs and symbols and then declined in the form of sculptures, installations and performances, evolving in a continuous process of formation. Through a practice of intuitive cognitive assimilation, aimed at making the original content disappear, Candeloro privileges compositional  and gestural elements together with different types of representation, elaborated in a unique artistic approach. (...) Together with them, fears, gender constructs, questions of care and educational prejudices emerge, surprising for their affective and intimate content. Embracing material and formal ambiguity, while functionalising aesthetic choices Candeloro playfully confuses her sources, allowing new forms of subjectivity to emerge. (Attilia Fattori Franchini).
