Milan is an amazing city also for my Lacer/actions project concerning the decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and urban signs… Some weeks ago, while I was walking in the Naviglio area, I was captured by stunning colored palettes… Yes, it was a sort of an “open air” collection, with incredible colors and textures flowing from the walls along the public streets. A variety of abstracts located in the centre of Milan, under the eyes of passers-by… So, enjoy some images…
WARNING: THESE AREN’T PAINTINGS,
THEY ARE “LACER/ACTIONS”
Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of decomposed posters, cracks and urban/street signs. Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing nine works from the collection of about 50.000 images captured so far 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 recent projects: “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts 1563-1631) and “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids ).
