Sara Goldschmied (b. 1975, Vicenza, Italy). Eleonora Chiari (b. 1971, Rome, Italy).
The goldiechiari art duo was founded in 2001. Using installation, video and photography, they explore the concepts of history and memory in terms of the division between amnesia, deletion/reconstruction and reflection. Analyzing specific moments in recent political history, they demonstrate the opacity of memory, together with the strategies employed to wipe out truths or create new ones. They focus too on sexuality and female identity interpreted as the products of real and imaginary experiences imposed by society. They have had personal exhibitions at MACRO Museum in Rome, Museion in Bolzano and Centro d’Arti Visive Pescheria in Pesaro, Italy, Cac Passerelle in Brest, France. The duo has also taken part in numerous group shows in venues like the MoCa Shanghai (2010), theMusée de Grenoble (2007) and Castello di Rivoli in Turin (2012), Mambo Museum, Bologna, and their work has been presented at the biennials in Venice (2009) Berlin (2006) Dublin (2011) Selestat (2013). Tel Aviv (2010).
