COLLAGE OF WASTE-PAPER PIECES FROM TORN
AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS
This work is a collage created with 300 waste-paper pieces from torn and decomposed publicity posters.
It was selected and donated to the 40th edition of “An exhibition for a restoration” project which intends to protect and to preserve a great piece of art by Jacopo Siculo (XVI Century), “Incoronazione della Vergine”, in the beautiful Norcia (Perugia, Italy).
My “Shooting Star” work will be on show in Norcia (Umbria, Italy) from July 12, 2014 to September 7, 2014, at Complesso monumentale San Francesco. The event is promoted by Comitato “Una mostra, Un restauro”.
Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs. Roberto has already collected, around the world, more than 50.000 images.
Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), re-build on collages, or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn publicity posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition.
