Costanza Gastaldi

Costanza Gastaldi is an Italian artist-photographer. After studying at the Gobelins school, she graduated with a master's degree in arts and letters from the Sorbonne University in 2017. From then on, her activity is divided between her plastic research, the organization of his photographic expeditions - in the Chinese mountains, above the Arctic Circle or in the White Desert for example - and his exhibitions to which the installations give an ever more immersive side. Despite his young age, his work has been the subject of several solo and group exhibitions and has been presented at international fairs such as PhotoFairs Shanghai, Fine Art Asia and Ink Asia in Hong Kong. Today she is represented by Novalis Contemporary Art Design (HongKong), Post Design (Milan) as well as by Kahmann Gallery (Amsterdam).

Costanza Gastaldi in Normandy - Douce Incise

In an alternation of architectural details and the natural frameworks of the country, Costanza Gastaldi makes us experience the Norman territory. By its grain, its materiality, Douce Incise draws on the tradition of the imprint to echo the traces on the sand produced by the tides - oscillatory and periodic movements of the sea level - which characterize this region so much. The absence of clear contours and clear colors suggests a form of “plasticity of the territory” in which Costanza Gastaldi invites us to reshape, through the imagination, what “the first image” gives to see.
