THIS IS NOT A COLLAGE BY ROTELLA OR VILLEGLE’, BUT A REAL PUBLICITY BILLBOARD ON THE ROAD…

What you see in this photogallery are not collages built and created deliberately with my hands, joining and sticking piece by piece, but photos of real and random torn publicity posters I saw on a big outdoor billboard, on the road (its sizes: 5,5 meters x 3,5). They are 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 them and to take pictures for my “Lacer/actions” Project and Archive which now counts around 100,000 abstract images I collected so far around the world.

I think that these random pics, 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 the true and genuine art – a sort of evolution of the same street art – consists of leaving the torn and decomposed publicity posters where they are staying: on the billboards. This could be a fascinating and random show which transforms our cities in free outdoor “galleries”…

“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.

Jeanie Barton and Roberto Alborghetti talkin’ with the Lord Mayor of Nottingham, dr.Mohammed Saghir.

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.

Photogallery # 4 about signs, scratches and graffiti from the walls in Rome. They’re not paintings, or digitally made compositions. They’re abstract and macro photos I usually take while I’m walking along the streets: I collected so far more than 100.000 images.
