Last appointment at the Trajan’s Markets

about Last appointment at the Trajan’s Markets

On July 16, 2020, the Trajan’s Markets welcome the artists of Live Museum, Live Change for the last time.
With the atelier IV S·· L’unico difetto è la mia assenza, Claudio Beorchia has collected the comments that visitors leave on the web to discover the sign that the Museum leaves in those who cross its spaces.
Corrado Chiatti and Mattia Pellegrini present the video Dissezione Traiano, a poetic study on collective momentary living. A research work that also meets the path of the company of Nontantoprecisi in the Trajan’s Markets. Chiatti and Pellegrini have captured the relationship between the actors and the space: small movements, brief glances of individuals who make themselves sensitive statues. The video is also a reflection on the matter of which a place is made, on its memory and its mysteries that investigates the possible relationships with bodies, which mark new traces and mark a passage, even imperceptible, in history.

Chiatti and Pellegrini have captured the relationship between the actors and the space: small movements, brief glances of individuals who make themselves sensitive statues. The video is also a reflection on the substance of which a place is made, on its memory and its mysteries, investigating the possible relationships with bodies, which mark new traces and a passage, even imperceptible, in history.
Puntature by Maria Diana is a set of brooches, pendants and earrings made of bronze, silver and porcelain engraved with the maps of some symbolic places of Rome – Piazza Venezia, Piazza del Popolo, Castel Sant’Angelo – which, like the Markets, were important spaces for aggregation, socializing and meeting.
TITANI by Davide Gallina and Ilaria Aprile, from the design studio Manufatto, is a set of four kitchen pestles – CEO, the crumbler; CRIO, the shredder; GIAPETO, the pounder and HYPERION, the stomper – small marble columns that offer different degrees of food grinding. The idea was born from the observation of the Trajan’s Markets, a place where time and human intervention fragmented the marbles into elements of different sizes, from large to very small.
The exhibition also hosts the Botanical Notebooks of the artist Gaia Bellini, who collected and identified the plants growing in the ruins of the Trajan’s Markets and, with a slow process of vegetable printing and color extraction, created an inventory of the traces and colors of the botanical layers that cling to the ancient remains of the Markets.
One sign after another is the work of the illustrator Valenzia Lafratta, who graphically restores the beauty of the museum in a long strip of paper which, folded like an accordion, takes the form of a book and offers an overall view that is composed of twelve glimpses, in an arbitrary sequence, for twelve moments that tell the personal perception of the place, the sense of vertigo and the emotion experienced at Trajan’s markets.
Presenze by Raffaele Fiorella are small sculptures in raw clay and terracotta set in the material of the Museum and in its current stratification. Fictional characters are created to tell the human universe that has crossed and inhabited the Markets at different moments in its history.
