FACTUM arte - Gómez de la Serna

Facsimile of Gómez de la Serna Madrid, 2011 

Factum Arte was comissioned the scanning and facsimile production for a work by spanish poet Ramón Gómez de la Serna. The MNCARS (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía) hosted this untitled work (referred to as Window-Panel from the Ramón Gómez de la Serna's study on Hipólito Irigoyen street, Buenos Aires) temporarily as a loan from the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Madrid. MNCARS wished to have the work as part of their permanent collection, so a team from Factum Arte photographed and colour-scanned the original panel and mirrors that make up the piece. The finalised facsimile went on to be part of the permanent collection in the autumn of 2011.

The panel is accompanied by two mirrors with characteristic artifacts. These needed to be reproduced accordingly in the final result. 

After printing the separate pieces that inform the collage, a careful plan was made to ensure all overlapping was correct and the three-dimensional effect achieved.
Factum Arte's director Adam Lowe worked closely on the facsimile.
