In the 1960s, Chiavacci, became interested in computers and took a programming course on one of IBM’s first computers. His fascination with computers became a source of inspiration for his art and led to his participation in the 1960s art movement Arte Programmata, Italian Kinetic Art.
In the 1970s he began to explore photography as a medium. His non-traditional use of the camera pushed the boundaries of photography producing abstract images using multiple exposures, movement and most importantly light.
Chiavacci passed away in 2011, and left behind an incredibly rich oeuvre of painting, photography and sculptures.
His works will be on show in the gallery in January 2019.
