THE OCTAGONAL BAPTISTERY (XI CENTURY) ON LAKE COMO: THE BEAUTIFUL SETTING FOR MY UPCOMING SOLO SHOW

 

My upcoming solo exhibition – “Colors Of An Apocalypse 2015″ – will take place in a beautiful setting: the amazing Romanesque Baptistery on Lake Como, Italy. My show is scheduled for 3 days, on July 3-4-5,  in the beautiful Lenno town, in the historical center –  50 meters from the lake shore! – where we admire one of the most stunning examples of Romanesque art in Northen Italy. It stands on the left side of the parish Church, where we may find an incredibile Romanesque crypt.

BANNERThe Baptistery is dedicated to St. John (The Baptist) and built in the 11th Century. Its structure looks incredibly simple and essential: we see a squared bell tower and an apse pointed to north. The octagonal plant has a simbolic meaning: in fact number eight coincide with the 7 days of creation plus the one of the Resurrection. Other characteristics signs: the vault, the portal with his three archs, and the inside where you can find fragments of medieval frescos and a baroque pictorial cycle.

The octagonal Baptistery and its enchanting structure will give strenght and evocative power to my exhibition which will show 25 works from my “Lacer/actions” project. Every artwork will be introduced quoting a phrase  from “The Apocalypse of John”. Images and words to suggest a trip through hopes and tragedies of human life and beings.

Follow the flock of doves… “The Apocalypse” is approachin’…

“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 75.000 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 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.

My recent “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 on March 27, at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. My next solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2015”) is sheduled on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on July 3-4-5, 2015, in a special and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art.

Earth Day is honored around the world on April 22, although larger events such as festivals and rallies are often organized for the weekends before or after April 22. Many communities also observe Earth Week or Earth Month, organizing a series of environmental activities throughout the month of April.

Earth Day broadens the base of support for environmental programs, rekindles public commitment and builds community activism around the world through a broad range of events and activities. Earth Day is the largest civic event in the world, celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities. More than a billion people participate in our campaigns every year.

What can we do for Earth Day? The possibilities for getting involved are endless! Volunteer. Go to a festival. Install solar panels on your roof. Organize an event in your community. Change a habit. Help launch a community garden. Communicate your priorities to your elected representatives. Do something nice for the Earth, have fun, meet new people, and make a difference. But you needn’t wait for April 22! Earth Day is Every Day. To build a better future, we all must commit to protect our environment year-round.

Earth Day Network’s year-round mission is to broaden, diversify and activate the environmental movement worldwide, through a combination of education, public policy, and consumer campaigns.

SCENES FROM A CHINESE SHADOWS PLAY? NO, THEY’RE JUST MAGNIFICATIONS OF SCRATCHES ON A WASTEBIN IN BEESTON NOTTINGHAM (UK)…  

 

 

The pictures featured in this photo-gallery aren’t paintings (oils, acrylics, watercolors or digital works), but just natural, random and not manipulated images of the amazing imperfection of the real world we see around us. I saw these scratches on a wastebin during my recent visit in Beeston, Nottingham (UK), the land of Robin Hood. They remind me sceneries from a Chinese Shadows play… R.A.

Roberto Alborghetti “LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings, natural cracks, scratches and urban/industrial tokens. 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, as you may see in this photo-gallery showing some works from the collection of about 50.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

A Roberto Alborghetti Show (“Colors of an Apocalypse”) was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from October 6, 2012, to January 15, 2013. His recent 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, 2013 and 2014 ), “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” (11 installations for Fai Private Collection, Italy). Roberto Alborghetti 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.

CRACKS CHROMOTHERAPY #1 / BLACK, RED, YELLOW AND GREEN… (VIDEOCLIP)

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outdoor  advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). I love also to document crevices and chaps on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. So, I invite you to enter the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection. My eyes and cameras discovered, in cracks magnifications, stunning textures ( and all this is what we usually consider waste materials…).  My Cracks are not paintings, but realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this video.

THE NEW “PERMANENT COLLECTION OF CONTEMPORARY ART” OPENS IN ITALY (MARCHE REGION) SHOWING 158 WORKS, INCLUDING A PIECE BY ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Saturday April 27, 2013 (10:30 am) at Palazzo Gasparini (a XVII Century palace) in Mercatello sul Metauroa picturesque and fascinating medieval town in Marche region (Pesaro Urbino, Italy) – will open the new Permanent Collection of Contemporary Art as a  completion of the St. Francis Museum of Ancient Art which will shortly be reopened to the public after the restorations. 

The collection shows 158 works including 32 sculptures and 126 paintings by established national and international artists. The initiative was made possible thanks to enthusiasm, passion and tenacity of artist and sculptor Pasquale Martini who has involved in the ambitious and prestigious project, the mayor of Mercatello sul  MetauroGiovanni Pistola, with the Municipal Administration, the local tourism association (Pro Loco) and the whole community. The works hosted in the Collection  have been generously donated by the selected artists. The official catalogue has been entirely realized with the contribution of Banca dell’Adriatico, a strong advocate of cultural promotion in the Marche region.

Bonita Cleri and Silvia Cupini – Art Historians at Urbino University – curated the critical texts about the artworks. The new Permanent Collection of Contemporary Art – Prof. Cuppini writes in the presentation of the catalogue – is  an important initiative that aims to extend Mercatello’s role as a place of art and contemporary feeling.

The permanent collection displays also a work created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” research about torn and decomposed publicity posters on outdoor billboards and about urban tokens. 

Roberto Alborghetti was proud to donate his work accepting the invitation from the Organization. Curator Pasquale Martini viewed some of Roberto Alborghetti’s works focusing his attention on an image that, according to Martini, depicts and interprets the sense of Alborghetti’s research about the “decomposed and contaminated signs of our times”.

The piece is titled “There is some chaos, with a focal point” (canvas, 63 x 43). The image was “captured” in Milan during a cloudy day on December 2010. Roberto Alborghetti is very glad to be part of this collection gathering national and international artists who are developing new forms and expressions in modern art.

  • The pics show: the beautiful “Palazzo Gasparini” (XVII Century), where the Permanent Collection has been installated ; the medieval historic center of Mercatello sul Metauro and “There is some chaos…” artwork by Roberto Alborghetti.
