ABSTRACT PICTURES (LACER/ACTIONS) FOR A ROCK BAND: THESE ARE MEMORIES…

The rock has a new look! This is another interesting challenge for Roberto Alborghetti and his visual art (Lacer/actions Project and research). WE DARE rock band goes with Roberto’s artworks for the new video titled “MEMORIES”. All the images of the videoclip are not paintings, but real scenes seen on a big publicity billboard. They were the final result of an incredibile (and amazing) natural decomposition.
WE DARE band likes to play different kinds of rock, from heavy metal to nu metal, from love metal to alternative metal, from alternative rock to gothic rock…and pop rock, neo glam, post grunge and hard & heavy as well. They are an Italian virtual group. They never knew in person, but only through phones, social networks and a lot of emails. The members are: Danio Minici : voice; bass & programming; Andrea “Ralph” Richini : guitars.

ROME: WHEN ADVERTISING DESTROYS THE BEAUTY OF A PANORAMA…

Okay, we agree. We live in the world of advertising and smartphones (which day by day are unnecessarily more powerful). But it is not the most aesthetically pleasing the large billboard (about a smartphone) that in Rome is obscuring the focal point of St. Peter’s Basilica from Umberto Primo Bridge, along Tevere River. But have the City and the Mayor of Rome noticed it? Apparently not … So we list it in the avoidable ugliness album.

Ok, siamo d’accordo. Viviamo nel mondo della pubblicità e degli smartphones (che di giorno in giorno sono inutilmente sempre più potenti). Ma non è il massimo dell’estetica  il grande cartellone (su un nuovo smartphone) che a Roma sta oscurando il punto focale della Basilica di San Pietro da Ponte Umberto Primo, lungo il Tevere. Ma il Comune e il Sindaco di Roma lo hanno notato? Pare di no … Così lo elenchiamo nell’album delle brutture evitabili… Speriamo se ne accorgano…

Dario  Fo (Nobel Prize in Literature, 1997) presented for the very first time Charles Darwin’s life in a story commented by paintings, also of great dimensions, turning the often unknown  history of the scientist father of the theory of the evolution into a gigantic comic strip . The exhibition has been staged at the Palazzo del Turismo “Primo Grassi” in Cesenatico, from August 5th to  September 30th 2016. The Charles Darwin’s history narrated by Dario Fo became a book edited by the publishing house Chiarelettere.

In photogallery: some pictures I took during the exhibition in Cesenatico (Emilia Romagna, Italy).

(HE)ART OF “LACER/ACTIONS”: ABSTRACT PHOTO OF A TORN AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTER

© Roberto Alborghetti – Lacer/actions

This picture (abstract photo) is part of “LaceR/Actions”, 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. It’s one of the 100.000 images I have taken so far around the world.

Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decomposition.

One of shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (2012-2103, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last 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).

“The Ghost Bus/A visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015). I produced two short films which were premiered on March 27, 2015 at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. An Italian premiere took place in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena) on October 24-25, 2015. My most recent solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2015”) was 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. With fashion designer and artist Mitrani Yarden we have developed ideas for the fashion world, as the Volcano Dress (e-book and short film) and an innovative fabric prints series.
