Goldschmied & Chiari
Sara Goldschmied (VI) and Eleonora Chiari (RM) formed the duo Goldschmied and Chiari in 2001.
Since 2014 they have worked under the name Goldschmied & Chiari in Milan.
The duo artists work with different media such as photography, performance, video and installation exploring the concepts of history and memory on the border between amnesia and cancellation, between reconstruction and repression "with a provocative approach always played on the thin border between irony and parody, between displacement and visual and semantic 'detournement' ". Throughout their work, Goldschmied & Chiari focus their gaze on sexuality and female identity, in many cases using themselves as performers of their works, urgently redefining the limits and the many representative possibilities of this identity.
