“The groups of drawings that make up the Self-portrait are made quickly, but with a daily ritual repetition over the months. I look at myself in the mirror or in the reflection of some glass, without looking at the sheet. I look for an introspective concentration, digging in my innermost sides. So I ‘appear’ at myself, at the end of the sketch” – Chiara Camoni

From 24 November to 23 December 2021, the Italian Cultural Institute in London presents ‘Autoritratto (una luna)‘ (Self-portrait, a moon) by Chiara Camoni, one of the works of art selected by ‘Cantica21 project.
