PIAZZA DI SPAGNA

photo and video installation by Massimo Vitali and Mike Figgis
a Vito Di Rosa project for agnès b.

Together, Mike Figgis and Massimo Vitali have created a piece with an intriguing narrative, which explores the relationship between digital cinema and the static image.
The artists were teamed up by Vito Di Rosa, who curated and produced the project
with the financial support of agnès b.
The idea is to combine the elements of Massimo’s detached but epic photographs with Mike’s
interest in personal intimate cinema. An attempt to dig deep into the soft territory
that lies between the fixity of two “stills”. Very often, particularly by looking at any of Massimo’s pictures, one would like to know what was happening before the picture was taken or what
will happen immediately after. Piazza di Spagna’ explores this idea for the first time.

Filmed at the iconic Spanish Steps in Rome in July 2007, the installation comprises four plasma screens with moving images by Figgis, flanked by two large-format photographs by Vitali.
The two photographs show the steps populated by the thousands of tourists who visit every day.
Figgis shows four different female characters as they interact with the environment
around the Spanish Steps. Each of these characters is played by the same actress Katy Saunders.

Photo and Video Installation – Editions 5
Dimensions 655cm (w) x 245cm (h)
2 x C-Prints, diasec on aluminium – 195 (w) x 245cm (h)
