↑ FLAMINIO  Location: Flaminio, Rome Year: 2011   Medium: Public space intervention, film, publication and photographs    Flaminio is a suburb of Northern Rome where Studio Tej set out to look at the gap between the Global and Local. Flaminio is home to internationally famous landmarks (such as Zaha Hadid’s MAXXI gallery); yet it’s also a quiet neighbourhood with local businesses and homes. The area is hugely popular with tourists, yet they rarely stray from the iconic sites, ignoring the local aspects. Plus local residents have no relationship to the global institutions. We explored bridging this gap, connecting people to the real Flaminio.   10 cameras were given to 10 locals with the request to document their life in Flaminio, resulting in a collection of local artwork. We introduced the community’s artwork into the MAXXI gallery - putting the local and global side by side. This was followed by pasting the photos onto the trees of the tourist heavy areas; thereby introducing visitors to the people and places of Flaminio. There is a film and book (funded via crowdfunder) to accompany the project.    Portrait images by  Tom Cockram
