Claudia Maina Galerie Gagliardi - Turin

Claudia Maina
Lives and works in Milan.

“My work explores the relation between the body and the environment.
The body is put in relation to the dimensions of space, time and sound in which it lives. Starting with concepts like repetition and habit, the research shifts towards how they act in daily life, influencing the psyche and the way of inhabiting the spatial environment.
The daily physical connection is constantly confronted with the emotional one, tied to the perception of our body. This generates a definition of space constructed with a formal exchange constantly shifting between equilibrium and obsession.
I am interested in analyzing how time is perceived and in studying the body as a place of temporal memory, acting as a link between past and future.
In my artistic practice I use drawing, sculpture, installation, and video.”
