THAT ABSTRACT WORLD UNDER OUR FEET # 1: MACRO OF A CRACKED PEDESTRIAN CROSSING

 

© Roberto Alborghetti – Lacer/actions

Yes, there is an incredible world, an abstract and incredible world, under our feet … These are some of the images I recently took walking along the streets of Rome (Italy). They’re about magnifications of a cracked pedestrian crossing. 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. 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.

Cracks, Corrosions & Decompositions like Maps to Nowhere… These are abstract photos I recently took walking along the streets of Barletta (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. 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.

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 abstract photos of the reality. And of the cracks around us… The wonderful quote by Leonard Cohen is the title of one of his great songs.

“IN TUTTO C’E’ UNA CREPA

PERCHE’ LA LUCE POSSA ENTRARE”

Dario  Fo (Nobel Prize in Literature, 1997) presented for the very first time Charles Darwin’s life in a story commented by paintings, also of great dimensions, turning the often unknown  history of the scientist father of the theory of the evolution into a gigantic comic strip . The exhibition has been staged at the Palazzo del Turismo “Primo Grassi” in Cesenatico, from August 5th to  September 30th 2016. The Charles Darwin’s history narrated by Dario Fo became a book edited by the publishing house Chiarelettere.

In photogallery: some pictures I took during the exhibition in Cesenatico (Emilia Romagna, Italy).
