Chiara Fumai

2016-2017: Spring

Chiara Fumai’s project examined the metaphysical representation of evil, inspired by the writings of psychoanalyst and Christian occultist Dion Fortune. Although unable to complete her residency, she began an artwork that used cosmic debris as a metaphor, in which the debris would speak, using words from “The Gospel of Diana,” an apocryphal late nineteenth-century publication about the revolt and superiority of nature over humanity.
