THEY AREN’T PAINTINGS OR LAND MAPS SEEN FROM A SATELLITE. THEY ARE…

They are called artificial bumps, or speed bumps… They are buildings made of rubber placed by the Municipalities to induce to slow down, so that road safety improves. They are often used in an inappropriate and exaggerated way. Often they are mixed with pedestrian crossings, thus creating strange, bizarre hybrids, on the verge of legality.
I have found a way to see them in another way. That is: taking a close-up photograph when they are damaged and worn. Exciting “pictures” come out. They look like maps of a territory seen from from the top of a satellite… But obviously they are not paintings, but macro photographs for my “Lacer / Actions” project.

“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project concerning researches about decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban/industrial tokens. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to waste-paper and decomposed matters. Like the picture above.

“A NEW LIGHT ON THE WALL OF TIME”: F. CORSI REVIEWS MY ART PROJECT

 

They aren’t paintings… They are macro photos of Lacer/actions.

Review by FRANCESCO CORSI, ArtInGenio, Florence

Roberto Alborghetti observes and contemplates those objects that are caught in a state of abandonment as the extreme consequence of their being significant objects. Objects that have exhausted their life cycle. Scrap where the artist takes the extreme meaning of things. Because things are loved even when they have ceased their mere function as usables.

There is a tenderness for the things of the world that can only exist in those who want to read the meaning of being. A life that is awareness of the ruins of time, which has assumed in itself every oedipal character of temporality, where light breaks into the finitude of a world already lived.

Alborghetti interprets the “wall of time” well, to refer to the Jungerian work, the space occupied by things that fall, but in this decadence a sort of mysticism is grafted.
Accumulated residues of discontinued works, ragged posters that have exhausted their function, like a human being worn out at the end of his days. And these wrecks draw their life from a new look, from a light that removes them from their inexorable decline.

In this subtraction from decadence, every element lives a providential redemption from chaos, from the useless, and helps to better understand that Life itself is useless, like Art, because Life is eternal Presence.

THE NEW “LAMIAGENDA”! THE COVER REPRODUCES MY ARTWORK MADE WITH WASTE PAPER

It’s out! LamiAgenda 2019/2020 is ready! This year’s theme is “Di cotti & di crudi”, an Italian pun that means: “Cooked and raw”. The texts are in fact a guide to good and healthy nutritionMy artwork, “Strati di memoria n.2” (Memory Layers n.2), made with small pieces of waste paper, is the cover and characterizes the entire iconographic section.

LamiAgenda, published in Italy by I Quindici, has a square shape – this year also a new rectangular size – the texts are written in Easy Reading format (ideal for those who are subject to forms of dyslexia) and contains personalized pages made by the same schools. Yes, it’s a small masterpiece of design, starting from the cover, which is in line with the annual theme of the diary, devoted to food and to healthy and good nutrition, without excess and without food waste.

1969-2019, CELEBRATING THE MOON (PHOTO OF TORN PUBLICITY POSTER ON A BILLBOARD)

Celebrating the Moon 2019

In my close-up photographs of decompositions and disfigurement of the urban environment, we often recognize figurative elements. As in the case of this image, captured on an advertisement board. It is not a painting. It is not an acrylic. It is not an oil. And not even a collage. It is a simple photographic image. It suggests thoughts and memories for Moon Day 2019, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the historic lunar landing, which occurred on 20 th of July 1969.

The picture is part of my “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 120.000 photos taken across the world. “LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project concerning researches about decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban/industrial tokens. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to waste-paper and decomposed matters.

Celebrating the Moon - Postcard 2019 - r.alborghetti

*

Nelle mie fotografie (a distanza ravvicinata) di decomposizioni e deturpazione dell’ambiente urbano, capita spesso di riconoscere elementi figurativi. Come nel caso di questa immagine, colta su un tabellone della pubblicità. Non è un dipinto. Non è un acrilico.Non è un olio. E nemmeno un collage. E’ una semplice immagine fotografica. Suggerisce pensieri e ricordi per il Moon Day 2019, che celebra l’arrivo degli esseri umani sulla luna, avvenuto 50 anni fa.

L’immagine fa parte del mio progetto-ricerca “LaceR/Azioni”, che ora ha raggiunto 120.000 foto scattate in tutto il mondo. “LaceR/Azioni” è un progetto multidisciplinare che documenta elementi decomposti e deturpati dell’ambiente urbano, come manifesti pubblicitari strappati, crepe e graffi naturali, materiali industriali. Impressionati dalla fotocamera e trasferiti su tele, riprodotti su stampe litografiche o tessuti, ricostruiti su collage o scansionati in videoclip, i dettagli di manifesti pubblicitari e gli elementi strappati e decomposti danno nuova vita alla carta straccia e alle cose scomposte. Come l’immagine qui sopra.
