Zilda, ‘Io sono una forza del passato’, rome

french artist Zilda’s wonderful project, ‘Io sono una forza del passato’ (‘I am a force of the past’), places figures from classic Roman cinema of the ’50s & ’60s in rome.  as movie characters they are part of romans’ collective history;  through Zilda’s work they are brought into modern life.

the characters are all hand-painted, and then located carefully (“it is essential to know the social and architectural stratification of a city, to get familiar with its streets, its quarters and to view that urban setting as a constraint that stimulates the staging of my ideas. “Spotting the city” amounts to approaching it like an open-air museum where each wall constitutes a hypothetic painting, a backdrop already developing its own aesthetics and organization of colors and materials.).

Zilda then takes photos of each piece, using the photos as a ‘fixer’, “immortalizing a set of works doomed to disappear, while they still make sense.”
