“CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS ART IS FROM AN OLD BUS?”

*

GUEST WRITER: MARYSIA ZIPSER, Act Group, UK

The exciting new “Ghost Bus” visual art project by Roberto Alborghetti – Italian journalist, writer and visual artist – is now touring the world wide web over the next two months attracting many admirers along the way.  This itinerant “modern art gallery” is culminating in a special short films premiere and social gathering on Friday 27 March at 6.30pm at Bartons Plc, Chilwell High Road, Nottingham, to which you are most cordially invited. 

Website and social media viewers are enthralled and mystified by what Roberto has created from the totally natural and realistic photo images he took last October of the 1956 “Ghost Bus” when he toured the huge Bartons garage site housing superb exhibition and special events space as well as a wonderful collection of vintage vehicles.   Can you believe that this art is from an old bus?

What captured Roberto’s imagination was the story behind the “Ghost Bus” which Simon Barton relayed to him.  The URR 865 AEC Reliance had been slumbering in an open Suffolk field for 20 years, resistant to both scrapping or restoration, before being discovered and brought back to its original fold a few years ago.   

 A vehicle-sister of the “Ghost Bus” had been documented in an incredible 1959 movie in Kodachrome colour of a group of English ladies and gentlemen who toured from Nottingham to the Italian Riviera on a Bartons Road Cruise Holiday, now posted on http://www.bartonsplc.co.uk/index.php/2012-01-23-22-22-17/the-ghost-bus.  

Bartons was once the largest independent bus company in Western Europe and one of the first firms in the world to operate a timetabled bus service.

As shown in the short film, some images (“Maps”) come from the Land Rover vehicle that is  parked next to the old bus.  The vehicles are both distressed in the same manner from decades outside, both the same age, British in manufacture and both have decades long association with Barton family. Both vehicles are still on site.

It was good reason for Roberto to create and build a different road trip of the artistic kind between Italy and the land of Robin Hood.   So he set to work incorporating the “Ghost Bus” for his “Lacer/actions” project concerning realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials.  

The Ghost Bus project is already attracting media and TV attention in Italy and around the world, so hop on board and enjoy the ride!

THE “TANGLES SERIES” VIDEOCLIP: RANDOM AND NATURAL IMAGES SEEN ON WALLS IN ROME

“So many tangles in life are ultimately hopeless

that we have no appropriate sword

other than laughter.” (Gordon W.Allport)

The “Tangles Series” videoclip 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 (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 60.000 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 most recent shows (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last two 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) from July 12 to September 7, 2014.

Now I’m working on “The Ghost Bus” project, in collaboration with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015). Films premiere on March 27, at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham, at 6.30pm. My next solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2.0″) will be running on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on 3-4-5 July, 2015, in a special and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art.

It was good reason for Roberto to create and build a different road trip of the artistic kind between Italy and the land of Robin Hood.   So he set to work incorporating the “Ghost Bus” for his “Lacer/actions” project concerning realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials.  The project, preceded by 3 trailers and a flyer, consist of two short movies for public performances and video shows, a limited edition special poster (showing 9 images from the films),  a special card series (reproducing 16 artworks selected from the 109 that had been created) and a collection of canvases.

The “Ghost Bus” project synopsis refers:

“There’s an old bus at Bartons garage, in the ancient land of Robin Hood. After thousands of miles, it’s taking a rest tired and rusty. But if we look closely, it continues to tell us the colours of its days along the dusty roads of the world…”

The Ghost Bus project is already attracting media and TV attention in Italy and around the world, so hop on board and enjoy the ride!
