Work published on the catalogue of the exhibition ‘Batticuore’, Pescara 2019.
TARA (alias Cristina Silvestri) was born in Pescara. When she was very young, she discovered her love for art and she began to work in important galleries. There, curious and proactive, she studied, researched and developed a deep interest for contemporary art. She’s always keeping an eye open on the world, on its beauty but also on its malaise, until art stops being a lens on it and it becomes a dialogue tool. She gathers ideas and materials, assembles, reuses, experiments décollage, works with plaster, resin, plexiglass, and begins to create works related to social issues and solidarity campaigns. She reported the disfigurements of man on nature, the environmental disasters, first of all the disaster “par excellence”: the land of fires in Campania.
Each of her works contains a story. It tells about the barbarism of war, it deals with differences in social conditions, with the violence against women. Inspired by the Mexican artist Elina Chauvet (the first who spoke about the phenomenon of femicide in her installations), Tara began her artistic project of report and awareness against gender violence, for which in 2014 she also co-created the “Fondazione scarpe rosse”, an association composed of women, that works for women. With this project she supported and supports several anti-violence centres like “Differenza donna” and “Solidea” in Rome, the project “Vieni via con me” made by the association TAMPEP, and the project “Io ringhio” of the A.P.R. Onlus, Turin, the “Alpha” centre of Chieti. Tara brings with her a wealth of important experiences, a rare sensitivity, that she constantly nourishes by researching, studying, attending courses - such as that of family advisor.
Some of her works were published in the book by Cristina Cerrato and Pino Nazio “All’ombra di Caino. Storie di donne e di violenza”, Sovera Edizioni, 2017.
Tara exhibited at the 57th Venice Biennale.
