Evan De Vilde remembers to everyone the famous sentence of Cesar Brandi ( Siena , April 8th, 1906- Vignano, Gennuary 19th , 1988, historian of art, critics of art and Italian essayist , specialist in restoration theory): “ the restoration is a methodological moment of the recognition of the work of art in his physical consistency and in the double aesthetics and historical polarity, in view of the transmission to future”. This is a fundamental question in the archeorealism ’s field, artistic concept of wide breath that starts from the use of the archaeological findings to install the ancient work in a modern , actual, contemporary ambit. In this view the conceptual art of Evan De Vilde starts from the presupposition that basic work, that one archaeological or of the antique trade , primary and central in the work to be respected and not marred in anyway by the creative process of the contemporaneous .So all works are conceived according to the axiom the archaeological asset, although it is included in a contemporary work, it is always integrally recoverable and given it back intact to the future generations. This applies for the tear documents of the ancient parchments and manuscripts of the XV sec., or for the series of Byzantine crosses, or of Tibetans sutra. “Who are we of XXI century to scratch , tear, destroy an ancient work than the time, which right or artistic license have we contemporaneous to bend the ancient memory in our imagine and likeness.” So Evan de Vilde stars one of his conference to Gravina Palace, in occasion of a meeting on the memory of the art and of his new ‘artistic invention”, already called “ archeorealism”. In a new prospective conception of picture he created a prospective that consent me to orientate the eye of the observer to the past ( to the archeological finding) and towards future ( to the preservation of the memory to the future generations)the optical fulcrum centered in the contemporary, playing on concepts of actual history ,so to actualize an ancient finding renewing and to resume in the past a contemporary history event.” “ […] “
Without to betray the scope of the preservation of the archaeological finding , because in the first axiom of the archeorealism remains understood that the ancient object can never be distorted and undermined, and without never to betray the contemporary art that is that one to conceptualized an historical phenomenon in a symbolic object as it can be the archeological one, I melted the ancient history with the modern one, history in history , levels that between them they run each other and close one in the other , followings together without never reach each other. “
