Claudia Bigongiari
Photographer

Italian photographer, she focuses on silent spaces and suspended moments.

She usually does not seek out or plan her photographs, they happen. She is driven to take pictures because of an interruption she perceives, a personal need to make her visions and memories come to life, having a non-existent conversation with what is around. Static objects, distant landscapes, and multi layer of experiences. Although there is little hint of human beings in her photography, her presence is always perceived.

She has elected photography as the platform of her questioning (to which perhaps she is answering with other questions). They are about vulnerability or temporality, everything she can capture in the moment without any certainty about the future. She remains fascinated with the ambiguity of the vision where artificial situations replicate nature and natural is lost within humanity.

To avoid re-touching and to work only in a field of documentation, she deals with sincerity, even if this means imperfection. Accordingly, her photographs are thresholds, conditions of blurred reality, foggy and mystic and reflective landscapes.

She attended the Master in Photography at the Brighton University and graduated at the Fine Arts Academy of Florence in Exhibition Design. She currently lives in Brighton.

  • Emily Ferguson: It Girl.
    Jun 1 – Jul 13, 2024
    Nicodim Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA
    What’s an It Girl? An image of an seraphic figure, glowing almost too bright to be looked at until the flashbulbs recharge and the cameras become visible. Glamoured, the viewer is still seeing spots and rubbing their eyes as the figure stalks out of view, no-one quite sure if she’s real or not, an apparition disappeared. An apparition, by its very nature is uncertain, the intention defined by the person who sees it – The angel becomes a monster if enough people describe it so. (more…)
  • Betty Bee: Nacquero A Napoli Improvvisandosi

    Strictly brunettes. Indeed brunette one, brunette the other. Capricious by poetics the first by birth, smooth as a straight line the second. The birthplaces of both are Parthenopean. As for one rooted on the cliffs of Posillipo where she also spent the resilient months of the recent Pandemic, while the other belongs to that blood material that protrudes into the vessel of the great swarming artery of Via Foria and its labyrinthine environs, where she still resides.

Curated by artist Gary Simmons, Heilmann’s friend and former student and colleague at New York’s School of Visual Arts, the exhibition celebrates her talent for distilling complex images and ideas into deceptively simple geometric forms and abstract gestural marks.
