Feather Chiaverini (they/them) is an artist who makes costumes, props, and performances that explore issues related to poverty, skill, and queerness. Inspired by devised theater techniques, Feather builds immersive installations, soft sculptures, and digital environments to imagine new futures and create utopias.
Interest in the multiple roles of costume began early for Feather, as they witnessed the many lives and stories one costume could possess without ever sacrificing its origin. With resilience and pluralism, they create props and costumes that are in a constant state of becoming. Feather embraces an amateur or ‘de-skilled’ aesthetic, elevating the utilitarian and everyday object in the process. Their aesthetic and the quickness with which they make and manipulate materials speaks to the resilience and resourcefulness of Queer, DIY communities. 
Chiaverini is currently holds an MFA in Fiber and Material Studies from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art and Architecture.
