PHOTOGALLERY: MY NEW COLLAGE IS SERVED FROM A SPECIAL TABLE (AND IT’S MADE WITH 1.258 PIECES OF WASTE-PAPER)

 

 

This is my new work for “Lacer/actions” project. It’s a collage made on a table using 1.258 waste-paper pieces of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings. I gathered every single paper pieces along the streets, after the old publicity posters were torn down from the billboards. I titled it : “The Symptomatology Of Instability (Waves On Waves)”. It covers a wood table; sizes: cms 108 x 51. I think images speak better than words…

About “Lacer/Actions” project…

LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches and urban and industrial signs (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 50.000 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 most recent shows (“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). In the last two years I was 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.

Now I’m working on “The Ghost Bus” project, in collaboration with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK; all on board from January 2015…

“The Next Apocalypse: no Heaven or Hell, only Smoking or Non-Smoking”;

Collage made with 150 small pieces of waste-paper of torn and decomposed publicity posters;

Sizes: 47×47 cms.; 2013.

This work takes part to “Art Toppling Tobacco”  

http://www.arttopplingtobacco.com.au/

 

Tobacco lacerates (and detroys) our lives. I wanted to express this concept working on lacerated and destroyed waste-paper from torn and decomposed publicity posters I usually find along the streets. So, for my “Lacer/actions” project, I’ve created this collage using about 150 little paper pieces of worn-out and ripped outdoor advertisings. De-struction (and de-construction) to communicate how those dark and disqueting clouds of smoke intoxicate and ruin body and soul, degenerating cerebral system. I worked on an abstract scene coming from exhausted materials to say that smoke, ash and tar are here with us… The next apocalypse: no heaven or hell, only smoking or non-smoking.

This work has been admitted to “Art Toppling Tobacco” project and competition created in Australia by Fay Thomson (browse the web site  http://www.arttopplingtobacco.com.au/ : Submissions 2013, category “Other” and click to the end).

Il fumo lacera e distrugge le nostre vite. Ho voluto esprimere questo concetto lavorando, come mi è solito, sulla carta straccia dei manifesti pubblicitari decomposti visibili lungo le strade. Ho creato questo collage, per il mio progetto “Lacer/azioni”, utilizzando circa 150 pezzetti di carta stracciata. Il linguaggio di un materiale distrutto e de-strutturato per comunicare, in un’immagine astratta, come l’uso del tabacco intossichi corpo ed anima. Fumo, cenere e catrame: la prossima apocalisse…
