“THE SNOW IS TRYING TO STEAL THE WIND PLACE”
(From “Controcanto”, Poems Book by Roberto Fabbrini)
Location: Milan, 2012
This image (reproduced on canvas) is displayed at Roberto Alborghetti Show (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) which is taking place at Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy), from October 6 to November 4, 2012 . It’s dedicated to the memory of Roberto Fabbrini, poet, theater director and author, who recently died after a long illness: he was affected by ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
If you want to know more about him, please read this post I wrote:
Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs.
Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition, as you may see in this “postcard” reproducing one of the 40.000 images captured by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.
