UNDER THE SKY OF ROME / TWELVE RANDOM AND ABSTRACT IMAGES TO TELL SENSE AND SENSATIONS OF A CITY…

These pictures aren’t paintings (oils, acrylics, watercolors or digital works), but just natural, random and not manipulated images of the amazing imperfection of the real world we see around us. I took them some days ago, during a rush-visit to Rome. Through these pics I tried to tell the sense of Caput Mundi: red as passion, yellow as history, black as power and its ghosts…

 Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of decomposed posters, cracks, scratches and urban/street signs. Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing some works from the collection of about 50.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

A Roberto Alborghetti Show (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from October 6, 2012, to January 15, 2013. His recent projects:  “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts, 1563-1631), “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids, 2013 and 2014 ), “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” (11 installations for Fai Private Collection, Italy). Roberto Alborghetti works are part of Contemporary Art Collection (Mercatello sul Metauro, Marche, Italy) and participating to “An Exhibition, a Restoration” in Norcia (Umbria, Italy) from July 12 to September 7, 2014.

Education International has launched its first world-wide photo action, which is part of the campaign Unite for Quality Education. Its aim is to show the great scope of teaching and learning conditions that can be found in different countries and regions. The campaign wants to show the importance of quality education and the diverse situations that are found around the world, bringing to the fore the  learning and teaching community aspect. The pictures can either reflect the importance of teachers, of learning environments or of the teaching tools.

 I’m participating in this campaign with a picture I posted on Facebook:

MY PHOTO: VOTE FOR IT IF YOU LIKE IT

 

Its title is “ Arms of the Heart”. It shows students visiting my “Colors of an Apocalypse” exhibition at Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Siena country, Tuscany, Italy. I think in this picture we may catch some interesting elements about the “sense of learning today”. As you can see, there is a student who observes and another guy seems to watch in another direction… I focused my attention (and my camera) on the third one, at the centre of the scene. This student – perhaps with an unconventional gesture – wants to know, wants to touch and wants to find out about the art work on the wall… I think today’s world needs this kind of action: to put young people in the right situations to know and understand. As the photo shows, learning means not being afraid to throw up our arms and feel that life is everywhere and in everything.

Education International will select the photographs that best depict the elements described above and will aim to organize an exhibition at its headquarters in Brussels, coinciding with the culmination events of the campaign Unite for Quality Education and on the occasion of World Teachers’ Day on October 5th. Some of the pictures will also be part of a photo book that will be handed to UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon. The photo action will end with a raffle and the award of 3 iPad minis to the lucky participants!

I’m participating in “Education International photo-action” with the aim to support “Mt.Everest Top of the World Mission in Nepal” and its appeal to provide school supplies for 65 Orphans and Destitute Children of Western Nepal who are missing school because they cannot manage the necessary funding required. Rajendra Nhisutu, Chairman of Mt. Everest Tower Organization (an entirely volunteer based multi-denominational, non-governmental, non-profit association), is seeking help for school admission fees, books, stationary and uniforms. For info, see its website: http://www.mission2nepal.org/

This campaign is also launched by Marysia Zipser, Founder  of UK based ACT GROUP (ART-CULTURE-TOURISM), voluntary community organisation in Beeston, Nottingham.

If my ways are lucky enough to win the photo-action contest, I’ll donate the iPad to Mt. Everest Tower Organization for the 65 Orphans and Destitute Children of Western Nepal in need of school supplies. So, please, vote for my picture if you want this dream to come true…

 GUEST WRITER: MARYSIA ZIPSER (*)

Mount Everest TOP OF THE WORLD Mission, Chaired by Rajendra Nhisutu, Motivational Speaker and Programmes Organiser on CLIMB FOR CAUSES, REACHING THE UNREACHED through HIMALAYA MOUNT EVEREST TOWER ORGANISATION (HIMET), are co-operating with UK based ACT GROUP (ART-CULTURE-TOURISM), voluntary community society,  based Beeston, Nottingham, UK, to spearhead an urgent UK /international charity appeal. This particular and humanitarian appeal is focusing on Nottingham and East Midlands public and its educational universities, colleges and schools, to help 65 orphans and destitute children, whose parents and family members have been killed by current wars prevailing in Nepal.  Also Nepal’s recent floods and land/mud slides there have magnified this plight.

Since April this year, these children have been bereft of their continued schooling at Mt Everest Top of the World Mission Head Quarters and Camp base, because of insufficient funding.  They need essential supplies to re-start their schooling needs such as books, basic stationery supplies, school uniforms and tuition fees and further financial support to help them continue for several years without further appeal.

Rajendra Nhisutu, Chairman, comments :“At first let me give very big thanks to Sis Marysia Zipser and this BBC great service to be able to present this plea from Nepal.  I am Rajendra Nhisutu, a local resident of Kathmandu, Nepal and founder and chairperson of the Himalaya Mt. Everest Tower Organization which is entirely volunteer-based, multi-denominational, non-governmental, non-profit making and social development as a tax exempted NGO in Nepal. I had served a few years as a Mission Coordinator around the Asian countries. Since 2011, I fully served and led wholeheartedly the ‘Mission Team’ from Kathmandu valley to the most remote parts of Nepal. Because the majority of Nepalese parents have and are dying from AIDS aged between ages of 30 – 50, and during the past ten years of CIVIL WAR ((The Nepalese Civil War labelled the People’s War by the Maoists Communist Party) there was an armed conflict between government forces and Maoist fighters in Nepal lasting from 1996 until 2006), famine persecutions and natural disasters have followed. Though there are many vulnerable needy children, we have been seriously caring for mainly 65 critical Orphaned and Destitute Children with little resources we are allowed. Hence, I have come to kindly ‘APPEAL’ for our 65 of Orphaned and Vulnerable Destitute Children of Western Part of Nepal who are missing school since 15th April, 2014 (2nd Baisakh, 2071 BC) in Nepal because we cannot manage to raise the necessary funding.  I am looking for help towards their admission fees, books, stationary and uniforms for 65 children. Your help towards this noble cause will bring, to these lost vulnerable children of Nepal, an opportunity to re-join school. I will send in details update with a big thank you letter from our organization along with the video clips and photographs of the children with very much thanking words from their mouths with tearful joy. I will always be here to assist whatsoever as have detailed mentioned by respected Sis Marysia Zipser. I look forward to receive your help through this your precious great esteemed BBC services. Faithfully yours, Agape, Rajendra Nhisutu, Chairperson For Himalaya Mt. Everest Tower Organization, Kathmandu, Nepal ”

 

We are also currently seeking British Council help for this in London and Nepal and are awaiting their legal processes to authorise and activate. We desperately are seeking financial aid to buy these essential school supplies to make these children happy again.  They so enjoy their schooling and want to learn English and our cultures so that they can learn to live and learn in a country where there are no more restraints and hopefully no more wars.  It is my particular mission to supply 65 paper-back copies of Oscar Wilde’s “The Happy Prince & Other Stories” for them to read and learn English and to appreciate the English language from one of Britain’s greatest children’s story writers and playwright who knew and wrote about human suffering.”

This is one important humanitarian campaign which appeals internationally, not only to Nottingham, Midlands and UK. By return of donations amounting to $10,000 (UK equivalent £6000), this Mission can immediately re-start this urgent schooling of 65 children. In return for donations to this Mission, Rajendra Nhisutu will organise for individuals and company employees to visit Mt Everest base camp to meet and talk with the children and to also climb Mt Everest with his experienced guide team, and respective company logo banners will be erected at Mt Everest Top and at the Mission camp.  There will be much global publicity for their own charities and causes if they contribute.

COLORS AND EMOTIONS: THE OTHER SIDE OF AUTISM / KIDS WORKING ON “LACER/ACTIONS” (THE CLIP)

Guest Writer: STEFANO ALBERTI

Hearty agreement and great success in Anzio (Rome) for the exhibition “Scratches, Cracks and Lacer-actions / Between dream and reality” inspired by Roberto Alborghetti artworks for the project co-ordinated and carried out by Professor Patrizia Sapri. The show was held at the  Professional Institute “Marco Gavio  ​Apicio” where a series of pictures told a journey through “special painterly colors and materials” and the singular experience involving children with disabilities and carriers of the Syndrome of Autism Spectrum. The initiative was made ​​possible thanks to the support of the Rotary Club of Roma Golfo di Anzio, Nettuno, which has included the activities in “Anzio for Autism” project .

Patrizia Sapri led with passion and enthusiasm the group of the magnificent seven little artists  who have re-composed and re-built works from “Lacer / actions” Project by Roberto Alborghetti. Kids re-viewed with their creativity images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches and “urban signs”. Patrizia Sapri, teacher and curator, says about the workshop: “ My job has the aim to start from the healthy part of the person and developing residual capacity. We search for a meaningful relationship between color and emotions. Limits are transformed into expressive skills, communication, art… Roberto Alborghetti works have the emotional power to establish a right condition to create and to act. Yes, my special students like so much Roberto’s colors, scratches and cracks. But don’t ask me why…”.

Splashes in Matter

 

indigo noir.

liquid fire

meets cubed ice.

spirit water always becoming.

clearly formed,

quickly diluted.

views of

every thought we’ve never seen

but can remember

briefly converge before

evaporation.

 

transparent continents

of interactions

reveal multi-

layered, thin veneers.

all of them thought real

(all believed)

now merging

in

rivulets of

shimmery vibration,

dissolved.

Is this me?

where’s the matter?

define life’s meaning.

 

The floating head grins.

oh, yes,

a round on him

(poured from  his own

dusty bottle, this time).

a new glass,

fresh ice.

begin.

finding splashes in matter.
