A continuous conceptual experiment, through all the materials and tools. From the perceived social void, to the look given to the world through a famous cut, now hidden. Until the blow that overturns religion.


Filippo Ferrero

The work of Chiro is born, develops, changes and is consumed in the continuous presence of a mediality from which all, today, we have no chance. In fact, it is difficult, if not impossible, to avoid the constant messages of each new one, be it informational or market-based: in any case it is reached and dominated above all by the image now in every place. Chiro is not much bothered by this, he belongs to a generation that has grown up like new technologies that are constantly changing as well as the electronic icons they transmit. Chiro records, memorizes, annotates and proposes to us a further mediality, realized with means that are anything but technological, which is placed between art and new craftsmanship. Written, photographic reports, details of domestic or external tropical interiors are used as Ready-made and / or citations, others in compositions whose outcome is always in Work in progress. Even in the latest works, in which three-dimensionality is the protagonist, these elements significantly connote a curious, intelligent language that is more than ever present in his time.
