The era “Cinezoica” is not codified in any manual. It does not exist, except in our heads of dreamers. The artist Stefania Rota has decided to give it shape with a video called”Cinezoïque”. Born in December as site-specific installation for the Cinema Visionario of Udine, and landed after two months on the Web, , in less than 24 hours the video has reached over 10,000 views, launching the name of Stefania Rota in the network. Stefania, from a status of young promise of video art, rose to art star status 2.0. Even the most popular site in French cinema, Allocine.fr, has spoken of her, calling her work “une superbe installation”.
“Cinezoïque” (with the French pronunciation) is a video full of the fascination that onlycertain tests of the image, can generate. It is a montage of three minutes, magnetic, made up of scenes from an undisclosed number of movies, in each of which appears a human figure moving across the screen from left to right: he represents a hypotheticaltime line in which it is developed the history of cinema.
For Stefania Rota, the epoch “cinezoica”, the era of the analogical and digital imagesthat accompany and pass through our lives, is a walk of a few minutes, a symbolic journey along which condenses the history of cinema. Starting from Méliés, touchingTerry Gilliam, winning the major stages of black and white, color, digital special effects.
“Cinezoïque” was created by Stefania Rota with Diego Lorenzo Zanitti for site-specific installation which has been produced by the “Center for the Visual Arts of Udine” with the “Centro Espressioni Cinematografiche ‘and exhibited at the headquarters of the latter the “Visionario” in Udine, a multiplex cinema and the nerve center for cultural and artistic productions of the city.
Now in its second life, Cinezoique came out from the wall of 21 meters where it remained”trapped” for two months, and instead the video “Cinezoïque” runs fast on the Web, infecting and social media sites at any latitude.
