Costanza Candeloro (Bologna, 1990) graduated in 2014 from the Haute école d'art et de design in Geneva (HEAD). Her practice revolves around writing, both as a storytelling/communication tool and as a graphic symbol, with which she carries out an investigation into personal and historical spatiotemporal fragments linked to alternative narratives.
“The network of meanings collected through both the stroke and literary investigation becomes the inorganic, fragmented body of cross-media works. Sculptures, videos and drawings are produced through a further – displaced – meta-literary plasticity.” (Costanza Candeloro)
In 2021, she participated in Devoured Spaces at Tunnel Tunnel in Lausanne, and was among the twelve artists involved in inaugurating the RETROFUTURO project at the MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome. She also participated in STATE OF MIND at the Swiss Institute in Milan (2020), H or Audience at FRI ART, Kunsthalle Fribourg (2020), Dépendance de l'Air at Riverside, Bern (2019), Hey, Voi! the section of the 16th Rome Quadriennale curated by Michele D’Aurizio (2016), Le Leggi dell'Ospitalità at the P420 in Bologna (2014), and at Pocari Sweat at Truth And Consequences, Geneva (2014).
In 2020 she created the online project Life-Edit for the Fondazione Prada, Milan. She was selected for the 2021 edition of the Club Gamec Prize, curated by Attilia Fattori Franchini.
Candeloro is involved in the projects Idioletta and Licit Illicit Bookshop. In the fall of 2022, she will hold a solo exhibition at ICA Milano, Milan. Costanza Candeloro works between Italy and Switzerland.
