http://www.marsilioeditori.it/catalogo/libro/3171338-lucyorge-orta-fabulae-romanae // "Fabulae Romanae" is a body of work by the artist duo Lucy + Jorge Orta that takes the viewer on a symbolic journey across the city of Rome, based on archaeological and historical research conducted by the artists and their observations on the cultural and social map of the city and its seven hills. Starting out from the most cherished form of the artist duo’s language, the tent or Dome Dwelling, and accompanied by the protagonists of their research, the Spirits, who take on the form of ethereal and mysterious figures that inhabit the city. The installation utilizes the MAXXI and the central role it plays in the contemporary life of the city as hub of an imaginary map that traces completely new routes through the city. Different physical and mental routes between the ways of life of a present in a continual state of flux and the ancient urban fabric. The city becomes destination and point of departure, traversed and interpreted as a multiethnic and inclusive place of welcome, where the trajectories of aesthetic and ethical values overlap. However, the significance of the project is given a fundamental twist by the performance that sees seven spirits/sentinels make their way across the city to arrive at the museum and guard the Domes.

Abstract

http://www.marsilioeditori.it/catalogo/libro/3171338-lucyorge-orta-fabulae-romanae // "Fabulae Romanae" is a body of work by the artist duo Lucy + Jorge Orta that takes the viewer on a symbolic journey across the city of Rome, based on archaeological and historical research conducted by the artists and their observations on the cultural and social map of the city and its seven hills. Starting out from the most cherished form of the artist duo’s language, the tent or Dome Dwelling, and accompanied by the protagonists of their research, the Spirits, who take on the form of ethereal and mysterious figures that inhabit the city. The installation utilizes the MAXXI and the central role it plays in the contemporary life of the city as hub of an imaginary map that traces completely new routes through the city. Different physical and mental routes between the ways of life of a present in a continual state of flux and the ancient urban fabric. The city becomes destination and point of departure, traversed and interpreted as a multiethnic and inclusive place of welcome, where the trajectories of aesthetic and ethical values overlap. However, the significance of the project is given a fundamental twist by the performance that sees seven spirits/sentinels make their way across the city to arrive at the museum and guard the Domes.
