THE STREET IS A FREE ART GALLERY: TORN PUBLICITY POSTERS, SLIDESHOW #2

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Are these modern art paintings? Are these pop art works? Are these acrylic pictorial paintings? No, they are just photos of details of big torn publicity posters on an outdoor advertisings billboard. For me, the street is a real free art gallery, where we can perceive wonderful pieces of art. The pictures above are part of my “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 110.000 photos taken across the world.
“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project concerning researches about decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban/industrial tokens. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to waste-paper and decomposed matters. Like the picture above.

SCRATCHES AND GRAFFITI ON BLUE: NOTHING BUT PHOTOGRAPHY #2

The city walls, in this case Milan, always reserve great surprises for my research project “Lacer / actions”. In this photo-gallery some of the photographic images that concern some scratches produced and created by wear and time. The wall had a blue base. And so the blue has given birth, over the course of months and years, to this surprising natural palette, which seems to come from the hands of an artist. But instead everything is close-up photography. Nothing but photography.

I muri delle città, in questo caso Milano, riservano sempre grandi sorprese per il mio progetto-ricerca “Lacer/actions”. In questa foto-galleria alcune delle immagini fotografiche che riguardano alcuni graffi prodotti e creati dalll’usura e dal tempo. La parete aveva una base di colore blu. E così il blu ha dato vita, nel corso di mesi e di anni, a questa sorprendente tavolozza naturale, che sembra uscita dalle mani di un artista. Ma invece tutto è fotografia a distanza ravvicinata. Null’altro che fotografia.

THREE IMAGES FOUND IN THE ARCHIVE: THEY HAVE BEEN TAKEN TEN YEARS AGO

Here are three images from my “Lacer/actions” project-research. They were taken exactly 10 years ago, but I think they retain all their amazing energy. Obviously, these images are not paintings, but photographs. They refer to billboards, which I saw by chance along the roads. Yes, these are not collages built and created deliberately with my hands, joining and sticking piece by piece, but a real, “natural” and completely collage. It’s  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 and store them to my “Lacer/actions” archive which now counts more than 100,000 images  I fixed and collected around the world. I think that these random works, 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 a way of artistic expression is instead to document pure reality through photography. And leave the incredible polychromy of torn posters on the walls, transforming the cities streets in public and free outdoor “galleries”…

PAPER SKIES OVER MILAN / MACRO PICTURES OF DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS

Yes, there is an amazing paper sky over Milan… In these video I collected some of the macro images I took walking along the streets of Milan  (Italy). They’re macro and abstract photos of a decomposed publicity poster I saw on an outdoor billboard.  The pictures 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 (I’ve collected so far about 100.000 photos…).

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. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions!

(HE)ART OF “LACER/ACTIONS”: ABSTRACT PHOTO OF A TORN AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTER

This picture (abstract photo) is 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. It’s one of the 100.000 images I have taken so far around the world.

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 shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (2012-2103, 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).

“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. 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.
