ABSTRACT BLUE SKIES… BUT THEY ARE JUST DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS

© Roberto Alborghetti – Lacer/actions

Some abstract skies… The 5 pictures are macro-photos I took from a decomposed publicity poster I saw on a billboard in Bari (South Italy). They are part of my “Lacer/actions” project-research (I’ve collected so far about 90.000 pics) about natural decomposition and corrosion of publicity postes, industrial and urban matters and of all what people normally consider the “disturbing elements of the environment”. This is not streetart, but art on the street. Natural, normal, absolutely random, without sprays…  

 

 

AN EXPERIENCE OF COLORS AND EMOTIONS FOR THE WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY #LIUB


*

This videoclip presents a series of pictures about “a journey through special painterly colors and materials” and the wonderful experience involving children with disabilities and carriers of the Syndrome of Autism Spectrum. The initiative was made ​​possible thanks to the support of the Rotary Club of Roma Golfo di Anzio, Nettuno, which has included the activities in “Anzio for Autism” project. It’s nice to remember it, when we celebrate the World Autism Awereness Day 2016 (April 2). 

Patrizia Sapri led with passion and enthusiasm the group of the magnificent seven little artists  who have re-composed and re-built artworks from “Lacer / actions” Project by Roberto Alborghetti. Kids re-viewed with their creativity images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches, urban and industrial matters, as presented in the videoclip. Now they are workin’ on the “Blue Moon” drawing created by artist and fashion designer Mitrani Yarden. 

Patrizia Sapri, teacher and curator, says about the workshop: “ My job has the aim to start from the healthy part of the person and developing residual capacity. We search for a meaningful relationship between color and emotions. Limits are transformed into expressive skills, communication, art… Roberto Alborghetti artworks have the emotional power to establish a right condition to create and to act. Yes, my special pupils  like so much Roberto’s colors, scratches and cracks. But don’t ask me why…”.

WORLD WATER DAY 2016 / ABSTRACT FRESHWATER (THEY’RE CORROSIONS ON AN IRON GATE IN MILAN)

© Roberto Alborghetti – Lacer/actions

Some abstract freshwater for the World Water Day 2016… The 5 pictures are macro-photos I took from a disfigured iron gate I saw along a street in Milan. They are part of my “Lacer/actions” project-research (I’ve collected so far about 90.000 pics) about natural decomposition and corrosion of publicity postes, industrial and urban matters and of all what people normally consider the disturbing elements of the environment…    

World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day. Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater. In 2015, World Water Day has the theme “Water and Sustainable Development”. In 2016, the theme is “Water and Jobs,” in 2017 “Wastewater” and in 2018 “Nature-based Solutions for Water”.

SIGNS OF THE TIME: CRACKS AND SCRATCHES (THE NOTTINGHAM FILES)

*

“Lacer/actions”  is a visual project-research I created about  abstract photos of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial matters…

The macro-photos of this video were taken at the ancient and impressive buildings at Bartons Plc (Chilwell Nottingham, UK) during my recent visit in January 2016 (it is the same place where I saw the wonderful vintage bus for “The Ghost Bus” project). Other photos come from the area of Beeston Marina.

Thanks for the collaboration to Simon, Tom and James Barton (Bartons PLC). Soundtrack: Essence 2 by Audionautix.

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.
