TIME AND MATTER: The Plastic Art and Sculpture Lab at Cinecittà

September 4th, 2012 by admin

The story of Cinears, the plastic art and sculpture lab, presents a great number of statues, chunks of scenery, plaster and resin casts to illustrate a world that gradually came into being. These pieces were used in films by Pasolini, Scorsese, Zeffirelli, Fellini – films which made cinematic history – as well as more recent projects such as reality shows. The pieces on display all occupied a large portion of Cinecittà film studios for many years. Photographer Alessandro Cidda makes his way through the sheds of the de Angelis family with the intimacy of a member of the family and the innocent eyes of a child that are easily captivated by a world filled with statues which could “come to life at any given moment”. His kind of vivid observations are capable of communicating the innumerable background stories that these statues – all of which are works of art by skilled craftsmen – have to tell.
