Daily Sacrifice

about Christopher Chiappa

There are people who tend to gravitate toward extremes in an effort, just to explore how an excess of something beautiful can become oppressive. Similarly, Christopher Chiappa kind of take anything and turn it into a nightmare, or a sacrifice, as in the case of his Livestrong installation, where a symbol of optimism, positivity and feeling of future like eggs are fried/sacrificed for our daily subsistence.

Born in West Chester, Pennsylvania, in 1970, Christopher grew up Catholic. He always thought he needs somehow for the art to be painful — “like real pain, not like hand-on-the-forehead, woe-is-me pain. I feel like artists have this real need to feel terrible.”
