Roman Laundry (bucato alla romana)

​temporary installation, Rome
Somewhere, in that space between myth and memory, history and nostalgia, lies the potential of the ordinary.  And what could be more persistent, (and common), than laundry hung out to dry?  These large scale charcoal drawings which reference classical sculpture, were hung over Via de' Delfini on a sunny roman afternoon in May, 2011.
