Ventura Chiara was born in Verona on 19 June 1997. She lives in Verona, works between Verona and Venice. Trained as a painter, he comes to analyze behaviors and gestural forms mainly through performative practice, with attention to minimal and simple aspects. For an investigation into the gaze and observation skills in everyday, routine contexts, his performances and interventions often take on a mimetic character that prefers the extra-artistic context, investigating and denouncing the most subtle aspects of forms of violence present in contemporary society. Ventura’s work is purely existential in nature, where biography becomes a cipher.
In 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, he co-founded together with Romina Cemin, the collective project menodi30caratteri with which he investigated and denounced the problems that the virtual world produces in the real world through an Instagram account (the project died a year later with closing the profile). In the same year he co-founded, together with Leonardo Avesani and Giulio Ancona, plural.
