Paolo Chiasera

Unter freiem Himmel

Paolo Chiasera addresses the complex relationship that unites young people with their (role) models and traditions. The figure of the hero plays just as important a role in his projects as does the process of destruction and new beginnings. The latter idea also contains the metaphor and familiar conflict artists face between art history bearing down on them and the need to set themselves apart from it in favor of the new. Chiasera employs this drama for his paintings and installations not only with intellectual reflection and conceptual detachment but repeatedly with relish and great emotionality, nor does he shy away from the pathos of grand gestures. This monographic catalogue provides a documentation of Paolo Chiasera first German solo exhibition at museum MARTa Herford, where he creates two extensive installations both of which deal with the classic topic of landscape.
