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.

(RE)NEW MIDDLE EAST: E.MALHI SOUNDTRACK + ABSTRACT PICTURES BY R.ALBORGHETTI

New edition of the video with soundtrack composed, performed and produced by Eylon Malhi. Music goes with abstract pics from my Lacer/actions project about the decomposition of posters, urban and industrial materials. Four minutes of music and visual art… The photos presented in the videoclip are magnifications of corrosions, cracks and scratches that I saw on a waste container in Rome (Italy). Abstracted from their context and place, they became a sort of warm colors palette. Videoclip by Roberto Alborghetti.

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”…
