Chiara Caselli

Chiara Caselli was born in Bologna in 1967. One of the most intriguing and versatile Italian actresses of her generation, Caselli has worked with such auteur legends as Michelangelo Antonioni and Liliana Cavani and America’s cult director Gus Van Sant. In 1999, Caselli turned to filmmaking, winning acclaim with her debut short film Per Sempre. In 2016, her short Molly Bloom, taken from Joyce’s Ulysses, was screened at the Venice Film Festival.

Over the years, Caselli has been increasingly drawn to the art of photography. Focusing on nature and lone human figures, she has created a subtle and sensual body of work of high pictorial value.

Recognition of her work has grown rapidly. In 2011, Caselli took part in the 54th Venice International Art Biennale and has since held solo shows at the Palazzina Azzurra museum space in San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute in Tokyo, Japan.
