Chrysalis, in nature, is the metamorphosis of the larva from its immature stage to the mature one, the imago. During this process, the pupa encloses himself in a silky shroud, defenseless.

A transformation that I think necessary in all of us, in order to achieve a new consciousness. This project has born from the need to express my disappointed in a broken society, that demands more and more, without giving us time to stop to think about what we feel and what we really need.

It is a consumerist and superficial society, that has taught us to invert our money and time to focus on our appearance forgetting about our true wellness. We frenetically produce and consume, with a negative impact on our environment and therefore, on ourselves. There is a general increase of stress and mental illness, such as anxiety.

Anxiety has been considered as the illness of the century, but despite that, there is still a lack of knowledge about it. With “Chrysalis” I realize an internal journey where I face all my fears and anxieties, where I compared past and future to the present, to discover my true self, as the larva from its original status to a more mature being.

The subjects represented reflect the aphaty of our civilization, and are fighting with their shroud into an organic surrounding, where performance merged with photography.It is a claim of human values and nature; and, even if strain and anxiety are the main sensations presented, this project intents to transmit a message of hope and personal improvement, in order to gain a new form of awareness.

About Carlotta Gambato

I was born in a small town of Venice, Italy. Since I was young I developed a strong interest in arts, especially for drawing. At the age of 13 I went to High School of Art “Amedeo Modigliani” in Padua, and at the same time I was taking classes of contemporary dance, for which I always had a big passion, that reflects today in my art.

After my studies, I moved to London and Edinburgh where I met a wide cultural and artistic scenario. In my free time I kept painting and drawing but I felt the need to find new ways of expression. I arrived to Madrid in 2015, and it was here where I had my first approach to photography when I decided to take an initiation course.

On 2017 I took the professional course of Photography at “EFTI International School of Photography and Cinema”, where I learnt from many great artists. On 2018 I got my first job opportunity as a professional photographer for an important luxury real-state agency of Madrid, Engel&Völkers. On November 2018 I was one of the artists who participated at the collective exposition “Ceci n’est pas un pays” in Toulouse, France. On May 2019 I took part of the Micro Residence “1 Artista 1 Día”, a program of the visual artist/ curator Andrea Perissinotto, with the project “No Soy Yo” at the collective exposition of LaLatente Espacio Creativo, during the third edition of Art Banchel Fair, in Carabanchel Madrid, Spain.
