“(We’re) MADE TO BE SEEN”… MY CLIP FOR MITRANI YARDEN FASHION DESIGNER AND ARTIST

*

This is the videoclip I created for Mitrani Yarden, a talented fashion designer and artist. I was inspired by the uniqueness of his creations and by his way to match colors and shapes, and daring to experiment new textiles, materials and solutions. His art comes from the streets, from the cities, from heart and mind. Freedom, harmony and individuality are the 3 words that represent Mitrani Yarden’s way of living.

So, to make this videoclip I began to work around his 3 words and letting me inspire by his great creations (outfits, designs, drawings and sketches). Then I tried to translate the sense and the spirit of his art in these few phrases, as you may see in the clip: “Put an armour on your dreams / Clothe yourself in freedom / No dart will hit you / (we’re) MADE TO BE SEEN”.

For the soundtrack I chose a fragment from a great piece by Audiomachine (“Red Sorrow”)… Please, listen to the epic drums (which seem to wake up the world… and the sleeping consciousness).

Yes, we’re made to be seen: I think this is a basic concept of the human and mutual relationship. In fact, we’re not in-visible. And the in-visibility is the easiest way to fall in the in-humanity… Mitrani Yarden’s design, art and fashion are telling these intriguing suggestions.

Mitrani Yarden says: “My Creations are cosmic and multifaceted. An infinity and multicultural in reality. My point is to meltinpot all the different and rich uniqueness on earth into a modernity, harmony, elegance and soficticated silhouette for offering people to have the ability and the opportunity to achieve clothes that will get a full and perfect harmony with their personality and their character. The ability for having the perfect way to express and communicate themself to everyone in every moments”.

Yes, because (we’re) made to be seen

Yarden styles contain a very big varieties of different details, materials, contrasting elements, contemporary nature, cultures,tradition and modernity, contradiction between the constructed and unconstructed, futuristic,romantique eleganthie, avant-garde and freedom.

My upcoming solo exhibition – “Colors Of An Apocalypse 2015″ – will take place in the amazing Romanesque Baptistery on Lake Como, Italy. My show is scheduled for 3 days, on July 3-4-5,  in the beautiful Lenno town, in the historical center –  50 meters from the lake shore! – where we admire one of the most stunning examples of Romanesque art in Northen Italy.  

COLORI DI UN'APOCALISSE - COLORS OF AN APOCALYPSE SHOW, 2015

COLORI DI UN’APOCALISSE – COLORS OF AN APOCALYPSE SHOW, 2015

The Baptistery is dedicated to St. John (The Baptist) and built in the 11th Century. Its octagonal structure looks incredibly simple and essential: we see a squared bell tower and an apse pointed to north. The vault, the portal with three archs, fragments of medieval frescos and a baroque pictorial cycle are other interesting elements of the temple.

The octagonal Baptistery and its enchanting structure will give strenght and evocative power to my exhibition which will show 25 works from my “Lacer/actions” project. Each artwork will be introduced by a phrase  from “The Apocalypse of John”. Images and words to suggest a trip through hopes and tragedies of human life and beings.

A GREAT SONG BY JAZZ SINGER JEANIE BARTON GOES WITH MY ABSTRACT WORKS CAUGHT “LIVE” IN NOTTINGHAM STREETS

*

A great song by jazz singer and composer Jeanie Barton pushed me to create this videoclip displaying 38 abstract photos I took in March visiting Nottingham City (East Midlands, United Kingdom); I already posted an article about this images series: https://robertoalborghetti.wordpress.com/2015/05/11/the-nottingham-you-didnt-expect-modern-art-under-the-sky-and-along-the-streets-2/

Jeanie Barton lives in Nottingham (please, read some few lines of her biography I reported below).  She was impressed by this idea and let me free to create… I’m so proud about this clip which mixes and matches Jeanie’s wonderful voice and music with my visual works ( they aren’t paintings or digitally made compositions, but abstract pics from reality taken along Nottingham streets). So, let you capture by this great bluesy song, so tenderly sung by Jeanie.

Infos about the videoclip: “Can I think of love?” (Colors Of Nottigham Streets) :  Words, music and vocals by Jeanie Barton, keyboards by Steve Rose, guitars by Chris Berry, percussion and production by Paul Morgan. Created by Roberto Alborghetti

ABOUT MY LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT

“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 75.000 images). 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.

One of my shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last two years I worked on these projects:  “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts, 1563-1631), “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids), “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” (11 installations for Fai Private Collection, Italy). My works are part of Contemporary Art Collection (Mercatello sul Metauro, Marche, Italy) and participating to “An Exhibition, a Restoration” in Norcia (Umbria, Italy) from July 12 to September 7, 2014.

My recent “The Ghost Bus” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015) with a great short films premiere on March 27, at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. My next solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2015”) is sheduled on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on  July3-4-5, 2015, in a special and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art.
