“LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban signs and landscapes, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed papers from billboards and advertisings diplays. I have so far collected more than 40.000 images.

Impressed by camera and transferred on canvases, lithography prints,  textiles (as pure silk), scanned in a videoclip, or re-built in collages, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to paper lacerations.

I think in the lacerated advertisings – and in paper mutation – is recognizable the “unwrapped” city, self-destroying in the messages, self-regenerating and self-reproducing in new visual elements, often contradictory, dissonant, discordant, but still surprisingly vital.

  1. ¡ QUE SOPRESA! Tidy decay hung on clean, white walls. I can’ t imagine what will follow with this idea.

    This creates such a new look for your projects it surprises me!

    • Thank you so much Meredith! Yes, and finally another dream came true… It’s a special area where I present the oldest (and my dearest) works. They are special and unique works, framed years ago. I love lithographic prints. And I remember that you have one of them… A new photogallery about lithographic prints is under construction on this blog, so you’ll have an idea of these works.

      • Yes, I do have one. It hangs on a dove grey, tidy wall… and now it means even more to me, knowing it came from this collection. WOW.

        I’ m excited to see what comes, now. Do you ever sleep, though? 🙂
