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.
