You find Room #7 in the highest place of the historic castle. It’s a sort of hidden space you have to discover at the end of your visit at the exhibition. Here are presented for the first time five particular artworks created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” Project.
Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters and urban/street signs. He has already collected, around the world, more than 40.000 images.
Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs, collages or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and ripped posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition.
