Description of the artwork «Reality 2»
The immediate aim of the research on contemporary art is to develop the ways of relating pictorial discourse with its three-dimensional emergencies in the urban context, through an archive of drawings, films and intermediary sketches. By selecting a few elements from the projects which best integrated into the urban space, we analysed the essential stages, the manner of integration specific to the areas with architectural and artistic elements of great tradition with stylistic coherence or with a succession of historical styles which have a strong visual impact in the contemporary approach. Once this endeavour was taken on, the research was made through thematic cuts, notes, interrogations and deconstructions regarding a reality in continuous transformation, unpredictable and impossible to enclose within formative barriers. At the same time, the project addresses a contemporary, non-homogeneous space filled with modern and postmodern elements. The documentation involved a theoretical part which demanded accession of libraries and of the contemporary media, and a practical part, which involved taking photos, making documentary films, sketches in selected areas. Their elaboration resulted in a personal, original project of intervention.
