Axel Void

Axel Void (SP-USA) – “Nessuno”
The mural depicts the back view of a woman. There is also a circle in the portrait, showing a scene en masse. The work was inspired by the Cantini “ironmonger” where it is housed. The building was built in 1914 to store all the materials that would be used to build the Ostiense district, namely the “modern” Rome that would have electricity, gas and factories. This was the start of the Cantini company and exactly 100 years from then, it continues to provide the same service. The woman in the picture represents the core family, and was inspired by the woman that founded the Company. The circle on the other hand represents the “workers” that with their commitment, all contributed to building the future that we currently reside in. The title of the work and the answer to the question are one and the same “who is that woman?”, confirming that the work is always more important than the person creating it. Whatever the style may be.

blu

A series of coloured faces created by the artist Blu on the façade of the Port. The intention was to concentrate our attention on a social wound, namely the homeless and squatters, which this building had in fact housed for some time. The artist decorated the facade on both sides, using the windows as the eyes for his alien faces.
