Chiara Ressetta (1996, Trieste. Lives and works in Turin Italy). In 2019 she obtained a BA in Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy; in 2022 she obtained a MA in the same field at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin.

Images collected in her archive are the starting point for the formation of an iconographic memory. Ressetta adopts found images, emptying them of the former pretensions of meaning, reassembling them through the pictorial material, to rewrite a feeling to be shared. Through this process she wants to treat those ancestral, primitive images. The pictorial medium is for the artist the tool by which an apparently anonymous image can be reborn as the form of a memory.

Chiara Ressetta was included in exhibitions among which: “A nudo”, curated by Adriano Bimbi, Florence Academy of Fine Arts, Italy (2018); “Premio Bonechi”, Casa Petrarca, Incisa, Italy (2018); “Formarti”, Sala Costantini, Fiesole, Italy (2017).

Her recent experiences include the residence Paratissima Factory, ARTiglieria-Con/temporary Art, Turin, Italy (2022) and ReA! Art Fair, Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan, Italy (2021). 

In 2018, she was finalist of Premio Bonechi, Incisa.
