“SOON” VIDEO: VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL VERSION…COLORS, FLOWERS AND BEES…

A very special “Valentine’s Day” version of “Soon”, video created in collaboration with jazz singer and composer Jeanie Barton. Her wonderful voice goes with my abstract photos from “Lacer/actions” project and research. Pictures and great vocals. The macro-photos of cracks and scratches on poles were taken along the streets in Beeston-Nottingham on March 2017. The videoclip is part of “The Ghost Bus Roads” project promoted by Bartons Plc, Roberto Alborghetti Lacer/actions and ACT Group founded by Marysia Zipser. Happy Valentine’s Day!

NATURAL CRACKS & CORROSIONS: LIKE MAPS TO NOWHERE #3

Cracks & Corrosions  like Maps to Nowhere… These are some macro and abstract photos I took walking along the streets of Bitonto, a beautiful city in Apulia, Italy. They are part of “LaceR/Actions”, 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.

© Roberto Alborghetti (10) (640x480)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. These images give us the illusion of consulting imaginary paths, jealously guarded in the soul of so many of our cities.

“SOON”:THE NEW VIDEO WITH J.BARTON. MUSIC, COLORS, BEES (AND POLES…)

This is a new collaboration with jazz singer and composer Jeanie Barton. Her  wonderful voice  goes with my abstract photos from “Lacer/actions” project and research. Pictures and great vocals. The macro-photos of cracks and scratches on poles were taken in Beeston-Nottingham on March 2017.

The videoclip is part of “The Ghost Bus Roads” project promoted by Bartons Plc, Roberto Alborghetti Lacer/actions and ACT Group.
Jeanie Barton sings: “Stay a while /Hold me/ If you look / More closely/Flowers bloom/To give bees perfume/ Open soon” (Lyrics by J. Barton).

Jeanie Barton lives in Nottingham (please, read some few lines of her biography I reported below).  She was impressed by this idea and let me free to create… I’m so proud about this clip which mixes and matches again Jeanie’s wonderful voice and music with my visual works; they aren’t paintings or digitally made compositions, but macro pics of cracks and corrosions on poles I took along Beeston streets.

Infos about the videoclip: “Soon” :  Composition, vocals, keys and synths by Jeanie Barton; Acoustic fretless, bass, production by Simon Paterson – Angels of Architecture;  Art, photography and video by Roberto Alborghetti.

Jeanie Barton and Roberto Alborghetti talkin’ with the Lord Mayor of Nottingham, dr.Mohammed Saghir.

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 (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 100.000 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 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), “The Volcano Dress” (with fashion designer Yarden Mitrani). My works are part of Contemporary Art Collection (Mercatello sul Metauro, Marche, Italy) and participating to “An Exhibition, a Restoration” in Norcia (Umbria, Italy).

My “The Ghost Bus” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015) with a great short films premiere in Chilwell and Nottingham. My last solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2015”) was on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, in the special and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art.

LACER/ACTIONS ON ALUMINIUM: THE VIDEOCLIP / CELEBRATING 20.000 DOWNLOADS ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL

*

“Lacer/actions on Aluminium” videoclip celebrates 20.000 downloads of my videos at YouTube Channel. The clip shows eleven aluminium installations for my “Lacer/actions” Project and created for Fai Bergamo, Italy  (private collection).

After being re-produced on canvases, lithographic prints and textiles (silk and cotton), my images about decomposed publicity posters, cracks and “road signs” have found a new way to be shown and represented. Now they are on aluminium plates… Maybe due to a surprising chemical reaction, aluminium metal gives brilliancy, depth and strenght to colors and shapes, releasing chromatic effects and emphasizing textures.

All the eleven installations are now part of private collection of Fai Bergamo, in Italy, who participated to this “experimentation” curated and produced by “Passepartout” (Bergamo, Italy). So, enjoy this special gallery about “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” “as an unmistakable complement of interior design and decoration…”
