IT’S NOT A WORK BY ROTELLA O VILLEGLE’, BUT AN ABSOLUTELY RANDOM BILLBOARD I SAW AND DOCUMENTED IN ROME FOR MY “LACER/ACTIONS” PROJECT…

FSCN0408 (640x480)

I think it’s  one of the finest ” lacer / actions ” I captured with my camera in the last few weeks. What you see is not a collage built and created with my hands, joining and sticking piece by piece, but a real and “natural” collage, completely random. It’s  the result of various overlaps – which took place over weeks and months – of advertising posters with different contents. I found this “masterpiece” of randomness in the center of Rome, near Piazza della Repubblica. It has been deleted and already covered by other publicity posters .

It was a big billboard, sizes 2 meters x 2. I was lucky enough to catch and store it to my “Lacer/actions” archive which now counts more than 55,000 images, all completely random, I fixed and collected around the world.

I think that this random work,as well as the thousands I have captured and documented, would really aroused the envy of Mimmo Rotella and  Jacques Villeglè… These artists worked advertising posters snatching them from the billboards. But I think that the true and genuine art – a sort of evolution of the same street art – consists instead of leaving the torn and decomposed publicity posters on the walls, making a really and natural fine show and transforming our cities in public outdoor “galleries”…

NON E’ UN’OPERA DI ROTELLA O VILLEGLE’, MA UN TABELLONE ASSOLUTAMENTE CASUALE CHE HO VISTO E DOCUMENTATO A ROMA PER IL MIO PROGETTO “LACER/AZIONI” 

E’ una delle più belle “lacer/azioni” che ho catturato, con la mia fotocamera, in queste ultime settimane. Quello che vedete non è un collage costruito e creato con le mie mani, unendo pezzo a pezzo, ma un vero e proprio collage “naturale”, assolutamente casuale, frutto di varie sovrapposizioni – avvenute nell’arco di settimane e di mesi – di manifesti pubblicitari dei più diversi contenuti. Questo “capolavoro” della casualità l’ho scoperto nel centro di Roma, nei pressi di piazza della Repubblica. Prnso che ora sia stato già ricoperto e cancellato da altri manifesti pubblicitari.

Era comunque un grande tabellone, almeno 2 metri x 2. Ho avuto la fortuna di catturarlo e consegnarlo al mio archivio di “Lacer/azioni”, che conta ormai più di 55.000 immagini, tutte assolutamente casuali, fissate e registrate in giro per il mondo.

Penso che quest’opera, tra le migliaia che ho documentato, avrebbe davvero suscitato l’invidia di Mimmo Rotella (o di Jacques Villeglè). Questi artisti lavorano i manifesti pubblicitari strappandoli dai tabelloni. Ma io penso che la vera arte, più genuina, sia invece quella di lasciare i manifesti lacerati sui muri, perché facciano bella mostra di sé e trasformando le nostre città in  pubbliche “gallerie” all’aperto.

ROME, LIGHT AND SHADOWS / 16 SCENES FROM A CONTAINER OF USED CLOTHING LOCATED ON VIA NAZIONALE…

***

Sixteen random abstract images from Roberto Alborghetti Lacer/actions project about decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches and urban/industrial tokens. The pictures were taken from a container of used clothing located on Via Nazionale, in the centre of Rome.

Fellow blogger Lanier Smith ( http://sentsmemory.wordpress.com/) wrote these thoughts about the videoclip: “I love these! Several of them look to my eye like the city reflected in the waters of the Tiber and others put me in the mind of seeing the Aurelian Walls through the trees of the Borghese Gardens”. Thank you Lanier for your beautiful words!

PHOTOGALLERY: MY NEW COLLAGE IS SERVED FROM A SPECIAL TABLE (AND IT’S MADE WITH 1.258 PIECES OF WASTE-PAPER)

 

This is my new work for “Lacer/actions” project. It’s a collage made on a table using 1.258 waste-paper pieces of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings. I gathered every single paper pieces along the streets, after the old publicity posters were torn down from the billboards. I titled it : “The Symptomatology Of Instability (Waves On Waves)”. It covers a wood table; sizes: cms 108 x 51. I think images speak better than words… So I created a videoclip I posted on YouTube:

Videoclip: The Symptomatology Of Instability (Waves On Waves)”

 

About “Lacer/Actions” project…

LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches and urban and industrial signs (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 50.000 images). 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.

One of my most recent shows (“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). In the last two years I was on these 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), “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” (11 installations for Fai Private Collection, Italy). My 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.

Now I’m working on “The Ghost Bus” project, in collaboration with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK; all on board from January 2015…

COLORS OF EARTH AND SKY… LIMITED-EDITION SILK SCARVES: DESIGN FROM DECOMPOSED OUTDOOR ADS

From torn and decomposed publicity posters to silk scarves design… After to be transferred on canvases and lithographic prints, Roberto Alborghetti artworks were chosen to create a series of three textile designs thanks to the collaboration of Bruno Boggia Studio (Como, Italy) who worked with the most famous designers and fashion brands in the world (Capucci,  Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine,  Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana…).

The design is unique: it reproduces details, colors and shapes of images concerning ripped and decomposed paper on oudoor advertisings (Lacer/actions project). Images about ripped  and disfigured posters, left to decompose on walls or billboards, are now on soft silk scarves – pure “crepe de chine” – ready to be worn, as you may see in this photogallery dedicated to one of the three subjects (“Shared moods”).
