The second edition of Temporaneo aims at creating interruptions in the urban landscape through the works of young international artists presented in public spaces of the city that have been recently modified by new buildings or by a requalification of existing structures. The interventions represent the desire of changing the imagery of Rome from an historical and monumental city to a space that reinvents itself.

Artists and works:

Giorgio Andreotta Calò, Roma (2011)
Ponte della Musica - Lungotevere Flaminio
Realised with the support of ZERO…, Milan
The work conceived by Giorgio Andreotta Calò for Ponte della Musica aims at reflecting on the thin but evident line that separates high and low, creating, in contrast to the horizontal axis of the bridge, a new vertical line of connection, on which to distribute these two poles that are specific to contemporary culture and that connect, diverge and change continuously. The sound produced by the instrument and the personal story of a tzigane violinist will represent these two positions. The simultaneous transmission of two audio tracks , along a vertical axis, aims at creating a communication between the ones who walk on the new bridge and the transitional scenario of the construction site below.
Giorgio Andreotta Calò, Giorgio Andreotta Calò was born in Venice in 1979 and lives and works in Amsterdam. He studied sculpture at the Academy of Venice and at the KHB KunstHochSchule of Berlin, an then attended the
Rijksakademie di Amsterdam. Giorgio’s research is about transfiguration. Urban space, architecture, landscape, are given back to the interpretation of the public through a decodification of original and symbolic meanings, often overturning the point of view and vision of the daily reality.

Flavio Favelli, Supervietato (2011)
Università degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza - Ex Vetreria Sciarra, via dei Volsci 112
Realised with the support of Galleria S.A.L.E.S., Rome
This work of Flavio Favelli will run across all the window of the Faculty of Umanistic Science’s entrance. It is an act of rememoration through the montage of posters of porn movies from 70s/90s belonging to the artist’s archive and composed in form of a collage. Some of them are impossible to find and sought by the collectors. The result of this composition of an imaginary out of time, a wall of names, words, logos, black stars of censorship, colours, provocative drawings and real linguistics devices in which the memory of our country and the inner experiences of the artist converge.
Flavio Favelli was born in Florence in 1967, lives and works in Savigno, near Bologna. He holds a degree in persian literature by University of Bologna. He exhibited in many important national and international art institutions and spaces. His works explores the real by recovering the subjective experience through the objects and the spaces.

Claire Fontaine, Siamo con voi nella notte (2011)
Teatro India - Lungotevere Vittorio Gassman (già lungotevere dei Papareschi) 1
Realised with the support of T293, Naples and Rome
Claire Fontaine‚Äôs neon work states ‚ÄúSiamo con voi nella notte‚ÄĚ (we are with you at night), quoting an enigmatic mural inscription that apperead in the 70s on the walls of Italian cities, as a form of solidarity to political prisoners. The night may represent the darkness of detemption and also the possibility of a rebellious act. This words, deterritorializated and out of context, in front of Teatro India evokes the fight against the merciless economic cuts that the governments are today inflicting to the citizens. In particular ‚ÄúSiamo con voi nella notte‚ÄĚ is directed to the movement of the workers of Teatro Valle, which has been occupying the Theatre for the last three months defending culture from the iterate attacks of italian governement, and remaining alive and bright as the fireflights of Pasolini.
Claire Fontaine is a Paris-based collective founded in 2004. The name of the collective is mutuated by a popular brand of scholastic notebooks. They work with different media: neon, video, sculpture, painting and text. They define themselves as "readymade artist" working on the elaboration of a form of neo ‚Äď conceptual art that often quotes or evokes the works of other artists and put its own subjectivity as an equivalent of a Urinal of Duchamp, a misplaced object, which meaning is entirely conditioned by the context.

Petrit Halilaj, They are Lucky to be Bourgeois Hens II (2009)
Auditorium Parco della Musica - Viale Pietro de Coubertin
Under the Patronage of The Embassy of Kosovo
The artists planned and directed the construction of this hen-house shaped in form of a shuttle. The work was built in Runik, Kosovo, by artist‚Äôs friends and relatives. They are Lucky to be Bourgeois Hens II, plays on the opposition between the shuttle, a human invention that represents the symbol of the space‚Äôs conquest ‚Äď and the hens, winged animals that cannot fly. The inhabitants of this wooden shuttle are a metaphor for the aspirations of the rural population towards urban life. The change is wished and is practicable, however it should never delete the heritage of one‚Äôs original roots, that should never be forgotten.
Petrit Halilaj was born in Kost√ęrrc (Skenderaj) in Kosovo in 1986. He spent a long time in Italy, where he attended the Academy of Fine Art of Brera, Milan. He lives and works between Mantova, Berlino and Kosovo. His works reflect the dialogue between his country, his family, his childhoods memories, and, unavoidably, the war. In Halilaj‚Äôs works history, emotions, experience and nostalgia build on one another.

Hans Schabus, Appostamento (2011)
Università degli Studi Roma Tre - Piazzale del Rettorato, Via Ostiense 159
Realised with support from Forum Austriaco di Cultura Roma
Appostamento has been expressly conceived by Hans Schabus for the Università di Roma Tre. The installation will involve elements already present in the courtyard of the University: the plants, the flowers, the vases, the trees which populate the outdoor space of the University, will be assembled by the artist in a new combination, thus developing an unfamiliar perception of the square, normally used as a passage for students and teachers. Through Appostamento, Hans Schabus continues his research on the idea of relationship between the work, the public space, the social context in which as artist he performs, modifies and dialogues with.
Hans Schabus was born in Watschig, Austria in 1970 and lives and works in Vienna. His practice focuses on the investigation of space, which is explored, analysed and then reformulated from a physical and intellectual point of view. His actions stem of research on the history and on the social and material memory of the space he is interacting with. His direct relationship with the context in which he is acting leads to an evident distortion of it. Space becomes sculpture, assuming a different identity and a new history.
