IT’S NOT A WATER-COLOUR… IT’S ONLY A MAGNIFICATION OF CRACKS ON A METAL SURFACE.

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles, or re-built in collages). Since 2009 I’ve been also workin’ on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. So, I entered the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection. My eyes and cameras discovered  through cracks magnifications other amazing textures in what we usually consider waste materials. Also my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this picture. More Cracks  in this special gallery:

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 lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this post showing one the 40.000 pics captured by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

The most recent Roberto Alborghetti Show (“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) from October 6, 2012, to January 15, 2013.

A surprise public exhibition, for one night only (“Lacer/actions Show”) took place on July 14, 2013, for a special event with Historical Place in a beautiful and ancient square (Palace of Countess, Ambivere, Bergamo, Milan area, Italy).

His new project, “Contemplations and Lacer/actions”, was inspired by Thomas From Bergamo Scripts (1563-1631). “Words from the Past, Images from the Future and an Experience for Today”.

“The Next Apocalypse: no Heaven or Hell, only Smoking or Non-Smoking”;

Collage made with 150 small pieces of waste-paper of torn and decomposed publicity posters;

Sizes: 47×47 cms.; 2013.

This work takes part to “Art Toppling Tobacco”

Tobacco lacerates (and detroys) our lives. I wanted to express this concept working on lacerated and destroyed waste-paper from torn and decomposed publicity posters I usually find along the streets. So, for my “Lacer/actions” project, I’ve created this collage using about 150 little paper pieces of worn-out and ripped outdoor advertisings. De-struction (and de-construction) to communicate how those dark and disqueting clouds of smoke intoxicate and ruin body and soul, degenerating cerebral system. I worked on an abstract scene coming from exhausted materials to say that smoke, ash and tar are here with us… The next apocalypse: no heaven or hell, only smoking or non-smoking.

This work has been admitted to “Art Toppling Tobacco” project and competition created in Australia by Fay Thomson (browse the web site  http://www.arttopplingtobacco.com.au/ : Submissions 2013, category “Other” and click to the end).

Il fumo lacera e distrugge le nostre vite. Ho voluto esprimere questo concetto lavorando, come mi è solito, sulla carta straccia dei manifesti pubblicitari decomposti visibili lungo le strade. Ho creato questo collage, per il mio progetto “Lacer/azioni”, utilizzando circa 150 pezzetti di carta stracciata. Il linguaggio di un materiale distrutto e de-strutturato per comunicare, in un’immagine astratta, come l’uso del tabacco intossichi corpo ed anima. Fumo, cenere e catrame: la prossima apocalisse…
