NEW MEMORIES 2016: WE DARE ROCK BAND + MY ABSTRACT PHOTOS OF DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY

*

This is a new version of “Memories”videoclip with WeDare song and my visual art (Lacer/actions Project and research). WE DARE rock band choose my artworks for their new video titled “MEMORIES”. And when I heard it I thought to one of my abstract photos series. All the images of the videoclip are not paintings, but real scenes I saw on a big publicity billboard. They were the final result of an incredibile (and amazing) natural decomposition which opened my view on colourful horizons, visions and universes… All that was not created by the brush of a painter, but simply by the case… 

I think my artwoks go very well with “Memories” track composed and performed by WE DARE.

 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 80.000 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.

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. An Italian premiere will take place in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena) on October 24-25. My most recent solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2015”) was on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on  July3-4-5, 2015, in a special and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art. Mitrani Yarden (fashion designer and artist) and me we have created “Hopes” project, a new experience in art, fashion, design and music.

MEMORIES : THE LYRICS

(Andrea “Ralph” Richini, Danio Minici, Roberto Porpora)

 

Time change our lives

Our own fate has took its flight

I need to stop somewhere,

I’m too tired to roam

Reasons beyond these lies

 

Don’t follow me please

do not cross the line

my eyes want to see the whole color of light

but all inside my mind.

 

 

Dreaming is not to stay (I cannot feel pain, you cannot run away)

Can’t lose a single day (it tries to drown me, but drowns before me)

I need to find my way (I cannot feel pain, I cannot feel pain)

All these are memories.

 

So I couldn’t change my life

regret hurts me like a knife 

I struggled and fought to get outside this world

but still I was pulled inside

 

Don’t follow me please

it’s all in my mind

my ached heart still need an injection of life

it’s not my time to die

  

Dreaming is not to stay (I cannot feel pain, you cannot run away)

Can’t lose a single day (it tries to drown me, but drowns before me) 

I need to find my way (I cannot feel pain, I cannot feel pain)

 

You know what, in the end

I find a safe place

but still I crawl, I reel

in all these memories

which never leave me free.

 

I tried to escape myself

from all these miseries

but still the weight of being

will not deny my past,

it’s still inside of me.

 

The light is coming out

the time has come, I’m sure.

But maybe I said this too many times…

 Dreaming is not to stay (I cannot feel pain, you cannot run away)

Can’t lose a single day (it tries to drown me, but drowns before me)

I need to find my way (I cannot feel pain, I cannot feel pain)

IT’S NOT A WORK BY ROTELLA OR VILLEGLE’, BUT AN ABSOLUTELY RANDOM BILLBOARD I SAW AND DOCUMENTED IN ROME FOR MY “LACER/ACTIONS” PROJECT…

I think it’s  one of the finest ” lacer/actions ” I captured with my camera in the last few weeks. What you see is not a collage built and created deliberately with my hands, joining and sticking piece by piece, but a real, “natural” and completely collage. It’s  the result of various and different overlaps – which took place over weeks and months – of advertising publicity posters with different contents. I found this “masterpiece” of randomness in the center of Rome, near Piazza della Repubblica. A few hours later it has been deleted and covered by other paper advertisings.

It was a big billboard, sizes 2 meters x 2. I was lucky enough to catch and store it to my “Lacer/actions” archive which now counts about 60,000 images (all completely random) I fixed and collected around the world.

I think that this random work, 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 instead of leaving the torn and decomposed publicity posters on the walls, making a really and natural fine show and transforming our cities in public and free outdoor “galleries”…

NON E’ UN’OPERA DI ROTELLA O VILLEGLE’, MA UN TABELLONE ASSOLUTAMENTE CASUALE CHE HO VISTO E DOCUMENTATO A ROMA PER IL MIO PROGETTO “LACER/AZIONI” 

E’ una delle più belle “lacer/azioni” che ho catturato, con la mia fotocamera, in queste ultime settimane. Quello che vedete non è un collage costruito e creato con le mie mani, unendo pezzo a pezzo, ma un vero e proprio collage “naturale”, assolutamente casuale, frutto di varie sovrapposizioni – avvenute nell’arco di settimane e di mesi – di manifesti pubblicitari dei più diversi contenuti. Questo “capolavoro” della casualità l’ho scoperto nel centro di Roma, nei pressi di piazza della Repubblica. Prnso che ora sia stato già ricoperto e cancellato da altri manifesti pubblicitari.

Era comunque un grande tabellone, almeno 2 metri x 2. Ho avuto la fortuna di catturarlo e consegnarlo al mio archivio di “Lacer/azioni”, che conta ormai più di 55.000 immagini, tutte assolutamente casuali, fissate e registrate in giro per il mondo.

Penso che quest’opera, tra le migliaia che ho documentato, avrebbe davvero suscitato l’invidia di Mimmo Rotella (o di Jacques Villeglè). Questi artisti lavorano i manifesti pubblicitari strappandoli dai tabelloni. Ma io penso che la vera arte, più genuina, sia invece quella di lasciare i manifesti lacerati sui muri, perché facciano bella mostra di sé e trasformando le nostre città in  pubbliche “gallerie” all’aperto.

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs. 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 decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this post  showing one of the 40.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

The most recent Roberto Alborghetti Show (“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) from October 6, 2012, to January 15, 2013.

A surprise public exhibition, for one night only (“Lacer/actions Show”) took place on July 14, 2013, for a special event with Historical Place in a beautiful and ancient square (Palace of Countess, Ambivere, Bergamo, Milan area, Italy). His new project “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations) is inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts (1563-1631). “Words from the Past, Images from the Future, an Experience for Today”.
