Images of Torn (publi)City
Lithograph, 2009, 50×70 (not available)
Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban signs, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and street signs.
Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations, as you may see in this “postcard” reproducing one of the 40.000 images captured by Roberto Alborghetti during his research.
His next big show will take place at Aldobrandesca Fortress in Tuscany, from September to November 2012 (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”)
This “Lacer/actions” postcard is dedicated to the 50th Anniversary of Bob Dylan ‘s “Blowin’ in the wind”. A song which continues to be a sort of “manifesto” for all the generations. “How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?…”
