Chiara Coccorese, born in Naples (Italy) in 1982, is an artist and photographer who explores the issues of existence, time and spirituality. Through a narrative approach based on stage-photography , Coccorese reconstructs the world using the dream-like language of infancy. She creates small scenes illustrating landscapes or fragments from invented fantastic tales, miniaturized scenographies with painted skyes and small plasticine characters, or real people into imagined worlds.
She graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples and afterward gained a MasterDegree in Professional Photography. Her works have been exhibited in numerous museums and art shows in Italy and abroad, among them: National Archaeological Museum (NA); Museo della Permanente (MI); Palazzo Ducale (GE); Museo MADRE, (NA) ; Pristine Gallery, (Monterrey, MESSICO) ; Galleria Dino Morra, (NA); PAN, (NA); “The Others”, (TO); MiArt2010, (MI); FotoGrafia Festival (ROMA); WhiteLabs Gallery,(MI); Galleria Paolo Erbetta, (FG); Cell63 ArtGallery, (BERLIN); Art Raw gallery, (NY).
In 2015 she entered in the "Luciano Benetton Collection", after being invited to the project Imago Mundi in the Italian section organised by Luca Beatrice, from which it followed the publication of the volume Praestigium Italy II - contemporary artists from Italy, published by Fabrica.
In 2016 her work "Zona rossa/Piano di Fuga" has been permanently placed inside the Vanvitelli Metro station, one of The Art Stations of the Naples Underground, becoming part of a collection of more than 180 pieces of art created by international authors.
