WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY 2020: AN EXPERIENCE OF COLORS AND EMOTIONS

*

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. It’s nice to remember it, when we celebrate the World Autism Awereness Day 2020 (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.  

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…”.

RUGS, DUST, GLUE AND PAPER: MYSTERIOUS CODES ON THE CITY WALLS

© Roberto Alborghetti

Cities reveal themselves also through random images of ripped and decomposed publicity posters and natural decompositions we may see along the streets. In this gallery I gathered some macro photos I took in Amsterdam, the so called “Venice of Northern Europe”. Rugs, papers, glue, dust, spray colors residuals and other materials mixed with torn posters gave origin to some fascinating and even disquieting scenes, where light and dark seem to create an obscure dimension or some indecipherable codes… It’s just the world of Lacer/actions…

THE AMAZING IMPERFECTION OF THE WORLD AROUND US: 12 ABSTRACT PHOTOS FROM ROME

  © Roberto Alborghetti 

 

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. They are photos: I took them in Rome on walls, advertising billboards, gates, wastebins… Free abstract and informal art along the streets.

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of decomposed posters, cracks, scratches and urban/street signs. 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, as you may see in this gallery showing some works from the collection of about 120.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

LIKE A GARDEN IN WINTER…: FLUTE NINJA (笛忍者) + 21 MACRO PHOTOS

The relaxing and mysterious music created by Flute Ninja (笛忍者) – composer, artist and musician – meets my “Lacer/Actions” works in a videoclip titled “Falling Snow”. The clip presents an original Flute Ninja (笛忍者) composition accompanied by an image series from my photo collection of torn and decomposed publicity posters. The 21 works have white and green as prevailing colors, suggesting a sort of snow scenes from a winter garden… All the images come from a unique ripped poster that I saw some months ago along a street in Milan (Italy).  

I’m very glad about this collaboration created in distance thanks to the web: Flute Ninja (笛忍者) lives in Alabama (USA), he is composer, poet, shakuahachi player, martial artist (he enjoys drawing and painting nature and landscapes; his inspiration came from Bob Ross). Through  his YouTube channel NinjutsuLives, he spreads his passion for Japanese music and instruments as shakuahachi.

In “Falling Snow” composition (lenght: 3 minutes and 59 seconds). Flute Ninja (笛忍者) plays shinobue, a transverse Japanese bamboo flute which creates ethereal soundscapes. So welcome to this sensorial experience for ears, eyes, heart and mind… An invitation to stop for 4 minutes and go slowly…

NEW VIDEOCLIP: DRIPPING TIME… (THEY’RE NOT DELIBERATELY CREATED IMAGES)

 

In this new videoclip you may see some abstract photos of Drip Artworks. They’re not paintings, but just random and not manipulated pictures I saw  in Sicily (Isola delle Femmine). They are part of my Lacer/actions Project and Research about decomposition of outdoor publicity, natural cracks and scratches, urban nd industrial matters. Soundtrack by Audiomachine : “Solace” (Out Standing).

Drip painting is a form of abstract art in which paint is dripped or poured onto the canvas. This style of action painting was experimented with in the first half of the twentieth century by such artists as Francis Picabia, André Masson and Max Ernst, who employed drip painting in his works The Bewildered Planet, and Young Man Intrigued by the Flight of a Non-Euclidean Fly (1942).  Ernst used the novel means of painting Lissajous figures by swinging a punctured bucket of paint over a horizontal canvas.

I did it simply… taking pictures to the world around us. In fact, there is in a natural, random and spontaneous dripping left and created by the times, by the passages of time…by the weather…

TURIN GOES ON POP / MAGNIFICATIONS OF SCRATCHES ALONG CORSO VITTORIO EMANUELE

© Roberto Alborghetti – Lacer/actions, 2016

 

The day before yesterday, in Turin, returning from a visit to the exhibition “Tempo.Memoria” curated by Sergio Gomez at the MIIT (Museo Internazionale Italia Arte by Guido Folco, Corso Cairoli 4) I came across a number of scratches along Corso Vittorio Emanuele (advertising billboards, wastebins, light poles …) I took some shots … Turin goes on pop. Bold colors. This is Art On The Streets. These are macro photos. These are magnifications of the world around us. These are “Lacer / actions” …

L’altro ieri, a Torino, di ritorno dalla visita alla mostra “Tempo.Memoria” presso il MIIT (Museo Internazionale Italia Arte di Guido Folco, Corso Cairoli 4) mi sono imbattuto in una serie di graffi lungo Corso Vittorio Emanuele (tabelloni pubblicitari, cestini dei rifiuti, pali della luce…) Ho ripreso qualche scatto… Torino va sul pop. Colori decisi. Questa è l’Arte nelle Strade…Queste sono macro-riprese di ciò che ci circonda. Queste sono “Lacer/actions”…

 

 

ABSTRACT ON THE STREETS… THEY’RE PHOTOS OF TORN PUBLICITY POSTERS ON OUTDOOR BILLBOARDS…

© Roberto Alborghetti – Lacer/actions 2016

What you see in this photogallery are not collages built and created deliberately with my hands, joining and sticking piece by piece, but photos of real and random torn publicity posters I saw on an outdoor billboard. They are the result of various and different overlaps – which took place over weeks and months – of advertising publicity posters with different contents. 

I was lucky enough to catch them and to take pictures for my “Lacer/actions” Project and Archive which now count more than 90,000 abstract images I collected so far around the world.

I think that these random pics, as well as the thousands I have captured and documented so far , would really aroused the envy of Mimmo Rotella and  Jacques Villeglè… These artists worked advertising posters snatching them from the billboards. But I think that the true and genuine art – a sort of evolution of the same street art – consists of leaving the torn and decomposed publicity posters where they are staying: on the billboards. This could be a fascinating and random show which transforms our cities in free outdoor “galleries”…

THE VIDEOCLIP: SIGNS O’ THE TIMES… ABSTRACT PHOTOS OF CRACKS ‘N’ SCRATCHES

Twenty “signs o’ the times”. Twenty scenes from the walls of a city (Bari, Italy). In this HD videoclip I present some of the pictures I recently gathered for my “Lacer/actions” project-research. 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: I collected so far more than 90.000 images.

Twenty “signs o’ the times”. Twenty scenes from the walls of a city (Bari, Italy). In this photo-gallery I present some of the pictures I gathered  for my “Lacer/actions” project-research.  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: I  collected so far more than 90.000 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…

ABOUT MY LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT

“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/A visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015). I produced two short films which were premiered on March 27, 2015 at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. 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 and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art. During the last year, with fashion designer and artist Mitrani Yarden we have developed ideas for the fashion world, as the Volcano Dress (e-book and short film) and an innovative fabric prints series.
