FORGOTTEN PROJECT was born in 2015 to enhance Rome’s contemporary architecture through urban art. There are some typologies of buildings that are at risk of being forgotten by those residents that don’t see anymore their social, cultural and urban centrality. The project aims at bringing attention back to these buildings, which still have a high – yet neglected – potential, though urban art and a series of events that actively involve people.
LUCY MCLAUCHLAN creates a world full of stories, governed by a passionate instinct that translates into an almost gestural painting and performative act. Lucy’s art combines ancient, almost prehistoric influences with a modern graphic sensibility. The creative impulse that binds these two different influences together constitutes its clear stylistic code, which gives its work an immediately recognisable style. Four of her art works are part of the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. More info about the artist: http://lucy.beat13.co.uk
