Increasingly, artists and institutions require a new type of mediator to turn their ideas into physical realities. Based in Madrid and London, Factum Arte is dedicated to digital mediation and to the production of works in two and three dimensions for artists, museums and special projects.
Factum Arte consists of a team of artists, conservators and technicians devoted to masterminding projects and solving problems, activities which have resulted in original solutions to highly specific challenges.
The development and application of new technologies are accompanied by the highest levels of craftsmanship at every stage of the process. Factum Arte always works to the highest standards required by both the commercial and museum communities in which issues of conservation and archival permanence are of paramount importance.
The work carried out by Factum Arte is inherently original and diverse. It ranges from major conservation facsimiles to archival print editions; in fact, anything involving a sensitivity to (and practical understanding of) the transformation, mediation and manipulation of information.
The Art of Piranesi: Carceri d’invenzione
One of the key elements of the exhibition Le Arti di Piranesi: architetto, incisore, antiquario, vedutista, designer (The Art of Piranesi: architect, engraver, antiquarian, vedutista, designer) is a 12 minute animation of Piranesi's Carceri series made by Gregoire Dupond at Factum Arte specifically for the exhibition. This series of 16 visionary images, originally etched by Piranesi when in his late 20's, shows the workings of his imagination, merging his architectural ambitions with his obsessive interest in antiquity. Watching Gregoire Dupond's animation is literally like entering Piranesi's mind. A CD containing both high resolution reproductions of the prints and the complete video will de released soon.
