COLORS & SCRATCHES ALONG NOTTINGHAM AND BEESTON STREETS (UK) #1

© Roberto Alborghetti

The pictures featured in this photo-gallery aren’t paintings (oils, acrylics, watercolors or digital works), but just natural, random and not manipulated macro photos of the amazing imperfection of the real world we CAN see around us. I saw these scratches and decomposed matters along Beeston and Nottingham streets (UK) – the Land of Robin Hood – during my last visit, in March. Yes, where The Ghost Bus and the Land Rover Mapping projects have been made…

Roberto Alborghetti “LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings, natural cracks, scratches and urban/industrial tokens. 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 photo-gallery showing some works from the collection of about 110.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

A Roberto Alborghetti Solo Show (“Colors of an Apocalypse”) was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) and in the Romanesque Temple on Lake Como (Lenno). In Nottingham he developed 2 projects (The Ghost Bus, The Land Rover Mapping) with Bartons Plc and ACT Group founded by Marysia Zipser.

WONDERFUL NIGHT IN BEESTON NOTTINGHAM (UK) FOR THE PREMIÈRE OF “LAND ROVER MAPPING” SHORT FILM

A little bit of Italy came to Beeston tonight in the form of author and artist Roberto Alborghetti, who was in town for the world premiere of his latest mini movie called ‘Land Rover Mapping’. And like his last film ‘The Ghost Bus’, it features one of Barton’s vintage vehicles.

It was screened at the Chilwell Arts Centre, in front of an appreciative audience, including the Sheriff of Nottingham, the Mayor of Broxtowe and the Bishop of Nottingham. Also in attendance was celebrity butcher Johnny Pusztai, and several members of the Barton family. The event had been organised by Marysia Zipser of Beeston’s ACT (Art, Culture, Tourism) organisation.

Six short films were screened altogether, including the original Ghost Bus film, which had also received its world premiere in Beeston during February 2015 at the former Barton’s bus depot. This event also included seeing the actual bus itself, which had been illuminated in a spooky fashion to extol its ghostlike appearance, as it had lain rotting away in a farmer’s field in Suffolk for some 20+ years.

‘Land Rover Mapping’ is a 14-minute film, which continues the theme of macro photography; showing up the rust, scratches and imperfections of the vehicle that was built in 1955 and has been owned by the Barton family for at least forty years.

Roberto is just on a flying visit to Beeston, as he returns to Italy on Saturday, to continue with the launch of his latest book about Pope Francis.
