This is a special week for Roberto Alborghetti Show – “Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”– at Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Italy; the show continues through to November 4th , 2012). The exhibition schedules lectures, workshops with students and videoshows. Lot of people have already visited the show; and other thousands are expected during the week from October 28 to November 4 (on Mount Amiata and Piancastagnaio there will be parties, meetings and shows for the traditional “Crastatone Days”).
The exhibition – displaced in seven rooms in an ascensional way – feature 36 artworks and a limited-edition of a three silk scarves series which Roberto Alborghetti produced in collaboration with renowned textile designer Bruno Boggia (who worked with the most famous international fashion designers). The 7th room is really special: it is dedicated to five collages created by Roberto Alborghetti with hundreds of paper pieces collected along the streets from decomposed and torn posters. Five new and never shown before works which are enchanting (and surprising) the visitators.
Show Opening Time: 10-12,30/17-19,30 (Saturday, Sunday and all public holidays; from October 23 to October 27 during “Penne e Video Sconosciuti” national events). For informations and visits by appointment: 039 0577 784134 ; e-mail: email@example.com.
Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/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 and decomposition, as you may see in this “postcard” reproducing one of the 40.000 images captured by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.
