Artistic duo Chiachio & Giannone is comprised by Leo Chiachio (Buenos Aires, 1969) and Daniel Giannone (Córdoba, Argentina, 1964), a couple both in art as in life, living and working together in Buenos Aires since 2003. Both of them have academic studies in painting, whereas they’ve decided to use textile art as the language to tell their story, embroidering as if they painted with needles and thread.

Their recent work consists of pieces made of domestic materials rescued from friends’ homes as well as their own, telling or bearing the recent story of their places of origin. Along with their exhibitions around the world, Chiachio & Giannone work with local communities in the creation of collaborative pieces that celebrate diversity, blurring gender lines and questioning the way identities, especially LGBTQ+, have been presented by history.

La dupla artística Chiachio & Giannone es conformada por Leo Chiachio (Buenos Aires, 1969) y Daniel Giannone (Córdoba, Argentina, 1964), pareja tanto en el arte como en la vida, quienes viven y trabajan juntos en Buenos Aires desde 2003. Ambos cuentan con estudios académicos en pintura, aunque han decidido ocupar el arte textil como lenguaje para contar su historia “de a dos”, como si pintaran con agujas e hilos.

Su trabajo reciente consiste en obras creadas a partir de materiales domésticos rescatados tanto de hogares de amigos como del propio, los que cuentan y cargan las historias recientes de sus orígenes. Junto a sus exposiciones alrededor del mundo, Chiachio & Giannone trabajan con comunidades locales en la creación de piezas colaborativas que celebran la diversidad, borrando las líneas del género y cuestionando la forma en que las identidades, especialmente las LGBTQ+, han sido presentadas por la historia.
