Dynys

Since from the beginning of her career, starting in the '90s, Chiara Dynys focused on two main areas. Both connected to a single attitude towards the real…

In order to achieve this she uses apparently eclectic materials, from light and glass to mirrors, ceramics, mergers, textiles, videos and even photography.
