“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.

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.

HOW MUCH GREEN WILL THERE BE IN THE FUTURE OF THE UNITED STATES?

Trump wants less green in the future of US… His withdraw from the Paris agreement still undoubtedly brings risks for the rest of the world. There are lots of possible pathways to the zero-emission global economy needed in the second half of this century to avoid the “severe, widespread and irreversible impacts” warned of by the world’s scientists.

 

 

NEW VIDEO: “THE HIDDEN WORLD”. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS ART IS FROM A WASTE CONTAINER?

Abstract (and macro) images of a waste container in Bitonto (Apulia, Italy). Created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “LaceR/Actions” project-research about torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial matters. In the video: quote from the beautiful article wrote by Fernirosso about Roberto Alborghetti and his “LaceR/Actions” project.

Janette Kelly , HR Consultant, from Canada, wrote this comment about the video: “This is truly astonishing and fascinating to me. Our world is a melting pot of cultures – both human and microbial – and every citizen has a personalized microbiome. ROBERTO you have captured this with artistic flair”.

MY TOP VIDEO OF 2016 AT YOUTUBE: “THERE IS A CRACK IN EVERYTHING…”

This is my Top Video of 2016: “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”, inspired by the wonderful quote by artist Leonard Cohen, who passed away during 2016. Cracks is part of Roberto Alborghetti’s Lacer/actions project-research about decomposed publicity posters, natural crevices and scratches, urban and industrial matters… This clip is dedicated to the wonderful world of cracks magnifications. The images are not paintings or digitally made works, but simply abstract photos of the reality around us…
