  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

Silvia Beccaria (Turino, Italy, 1965) lives and works in Turin, she is a visual artist who expresses her art trhough manual weaving.

After a degree in Philosophy and a Master in Art Therapy at the University of Turin, she began a course of study under the guidance of the Dutch artist Martha Nieuwenhuijs, continuing with educational projects in the Education Department of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rivoli.

Silvia's artistic project comes to life from the sense of the art of interweaving, which contains, in its deepest meaning, the concept of writing and storytelling. Weaving is, in fact, the art of composing a plot as one does with a pen on a sheet of paper. The wefts are her colours and brushes, she "paints" with materials that she transforms into intertwining filaments, such as rubber, plastic, paper and so on, those that best, from time to time, allow her to express the concept of the work. The enchantment of nature, the visible and the invisible, the places of memory, the beauty of language and poetry, the connections between weaving and writing become an integral part of her stories created thread by thread, giving life to installations that sprout from the canvas.
