Francis Alÿs - When Faith Moves Mountains, 2002
Alÿs visited Lima in 2000 just before the collapse of the Fujimori government and found ‘a desperate situation that called for an “epic response”, at once futile and heroic, absurd and urgent.’ He returned in 2002 to organise When Faith Moves Mountains, persuading 500 Peruvian students to walk in a line up a sand dune on the outskirts of the city, digging as they went, thus displacing the dune by a few centimetres. The action – Alÿs’s most visually spectacular to that date – was filmed from various positions and the images were subsequently used on postcards, whilst the artist also encouraged the spread of news of the work through rumour and myth. – TATE

HOW CARTOON PRINCESSES GOT MADE UP
“Snow White’s original paint colors were very pasty because, you know, she’s white as snow,” says David Pacheco, Master Artist. “But Walt wanted something on there that would give her more life. So the girls in Ink & Paint actually pulled rouge out of their makeup bags and put it on cells to show him that they could get this feeling of blush on her cheeks. They started with the rouge on the first few cells then developed what’s called a blend stick in various colors. It’s like stage makeup.”
THE STORYBOOK PALETTE SHADES
“Dave [Pacheco] gave the first inspiration for the colors, based on the original paint colors of the character,” says Chad Sommers, Manager, Product Design. “One of the things that inspired us greatly was how the shades changed according to time of day or situation. That’s where the color stories came from.”
Modernized artwork created by Disney Consumer Products, which drew inspiration from the original film for the palette’s cover, portrays Ariel in her grotto of collected treasure. “We really wanted to get a new Ariel pose,” says Sommers.
The shade names will take you back to the movie. Our favorites: Unfortunate Souls (a smoky lavender) and Jetsam (a glittering deep teal).
