LACER/ACTIONS IN GIF / 8 PICTURES FROM THE WORLD AROUND US

lacer-actions gif

“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, like these 8 pictures in gif (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…). 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, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions.

Walking through the streets of the cities and finding out billboards on which some decomposed and ripped publicity posters open you amazing visions… In this small photo-gallery I present 3 of the pictures I gathered two weeks ago in Bari (Puglia, Italy). They are some black and white abstracts, produced by the glue tracks left on the billboard  when they took away an old and ripped publicity poster…

As I usually like to say, they’re not paintings, they’re not created by the brush of a painter, but simply by the case. They’re abstract and macro photos I usually take while I’m walking along the streets: during my trips I  collected so far more than 80.000 images. I’m always amazed and admired how the reality goes beyond every imagination… The important is to be in the right moment and in the right place, having my photocamera ready…

FROM NATURAL CRACKS TO FABRIC PRINTS…

“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. 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 my shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (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) from July 12 to September 7, 2014.

My recent “The Ghost Bus” project was carried out in Nottingham, UK. I produced two short films which were premiered on March 27, 2015 at Bartons Plc, Chilwell. 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 location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art.

During the last year, with fashion designer and artist Mitrani Yarden (HotCouture is his trademark) we have developed ideas for the fashion world, as the Volcano Dress (e-book and short film about an high-fashion outfit) and innovative fabric prints series.

CRACKS CHROMOTHERAPY # 2 / FOUR DIFFERENT PERCEPTION LEVELS OF THE REAL WORLD

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outdoor advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). I also love to work on natural cracks, crevices and scratches on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings marking the passage of times…

We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection. My eyes and cameras through cracks magnifications are discovering impressive textures in what we usually consider waste and disfigured materials (as you may see in this photogallery). My Cracks – as well as all the other 60.000 images I gathered so far for my project – are just and only realistic, natural, random and not enhanced pics of the real world around us.

CRACKS CHROMOTHERAPY # 2 / 4 LEVELS OF PERCEPTION

*

“Cracks” is part of my “Lacer/actions” art project and research. All my pictures (about 55.000 so far) aren’t paintings, but realistic, natural, random and not manipulated or enhanced images, as you see in this “Cracks Chromotherapy # 2” videoclip; Soundtrack: “Making Memories” by Steve Fawcett.

My project is gathering documentary evidence about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters (on outdoor  advertisings), crevices and chaps on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings, industrial tokens. These scenes from the real world are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles. So, I invite you to enter the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection and waste materials.

UNDER THE SKY OF ROME / TWELVE RANDOM AND ABSTRACT IMAGES TO TELL SENSE AND SENSATIONS OF A CITY…

These pictures aren’t paintings (oils, acrylics, watercolors or digital works), but just natural, random and not manipulated images of the amazing imperfection of the real world we see around us. I took them some days ago, during a rush-visit to Rome. Through these pics I tried to tell the sense of Caput Mundi: red as passion, yellow as history, black as power and its ghosts…

 GUEST WRITER: MARYSIA ZIPSER (*)

Mount Everest TOP OF THE WORLD Mission, Chaired by Rajendra Nhisutu, Motivational Speaker and Programmes Organiser on CLIMB FOR CAUSES, REACHING THE UNREACHED through HIMALAYA MOUNT EVEREST TOWER ORGANISATION (HIMET), are co-operating with UK based ACT GROUP (ART-CULTURE-TOURISM), voluntary community society,  based Beeston, Nottingham, UK, to spearhead an urgent UK /international charity appeal. This particular and humanitarian appeal is focusing on Nottingham and East Midlands public and its educational universities, colleges and schools, to help 65 orphans and destitute children, whose parents and family members have been killed by current wars prevailing in Nepal.  Also Nepal’s recent floods and land/mud slides there have magnified this plight.

Since April this year, these children have been bereft of their continued schooling at Mt Everest Top of the World Mission Head Quarters and Camp base, because of insufficient funding.  They need essential supplies to re-start their schooling needs such as books, basic stationery supplies, school uniforms and tuition fees and further financial support to help them continue for several years without further appeal.

Rajendra Nhisutu, Chairman, comments :“At first let me give very big thanks to Sis Marysia Zipser and this BBC great service to be able to present this plea from Nepal.  I am Rajendra Nhisutu, a local resident of Kathmandu, Nepal and founder and chairperson of the Himalaya Mt. Everest Tower Organization which is entirely volunteer-based, multi-denominational, non-governmental, non-profit making and social development as a tax exempted NGO in Nepal. I had served a few years as a Mission Coordinator around the Asian countries. Since 2011, I fully served and led wholeheartedly the ‘Mission Team’ from Kathmandu valley to the most remote parts of Nepal. Because the majority of Nepalese parents have and are dying from AIDS aged between ages of 30 – 50, and during the past ten years of CIVIL WAR ((The Nepalese Civil War labelled the People’s War by the Maoists Communist Party) there was an armed conflict between government forces and Maoist fighters in Nepal lasting from 1996 until 2006), famine persecutions and natural disasters have followed. Though there are many vulnerable needy children, we have been seriously caring for mainly 65 critical Orphaned and Destitute Children with little resources we are allowed. Hence, I have come to kindly ‘APPEAL’ for our 65 of Orphaned and Vulnerable Destitute Children of Western Part of Nepal who are missing school since 15th April, 2014 (2nd Baisakh, 2071 BC) in Nepal because we cannot manage to raise the necessary funding.  I am looking for help towards their admission fees, books, stationary and uniforms for 65 children. Your help towards this noble cause will bring, to these lost vulnerable children of Nepal, an opportunity to re-join school. I will send in details update with a big thank you letter from our organization along with the video clips and photographs of the children with very much thanking words from their mouths with tearful joy. I will always be here to assist whatsoever as have detailed mentioned by respected Sis Marysia Zipser. I look forward to receive your help through this your precious great esteemed BBC services. Faithfully yours, Agape, Rajendra Nhisutu, Chairperson For Himalaya Mt. Everest Tower Organization, Kathmandu, Nepal ”

 

We are also currently seeking British Council help for this in London and Nepal and are awaiting their legal processes to authorise and activate. We desperately are seeking financial aid to buy these essential school supplies to make these children happy again.  They so enjoy their schooling and want to learn English and our cultures so that they can learn to live and learn in a country where there are no more restraints and hopefully no more wars.  It is my particular mission to supply 65 paper-back copies of Oscar Wilde’s “The Happy Prince & Other Stories” for them to read and learn English and to appreciate the English language from one of Britain’s greatest children’s story writers and playwright who knew and wrote about human suffering.”

This is one important humanitarian campaign which appeals internationally, not only to Nottingham, Midlands and UK. By return of donations amounting to $10,000 (UK equivalent £6000), this Mission can immediately re-start this urgent schooling of 65 children. In return for donations to this Mission, Rajendra Nhisutu will organise for individuals and company employees to visit Mt Everest base camp to meet and talk with the children and to also climb Mt Everest with his experienced guide team, and respective company logo banners will be erected at Mt Everest Top and at the Mission camp.  There will be much global publicity for their own charities and causes if they contribute.
