Realistic and not Manipulated Images of Torn and Decomposed Publicity Posters and Urban Signs

These torn posters have somehow melted away into  mysterious alchemical compounds pointing the way to eternity.  It’s like they are whispering: “This way true happiness lies…”

LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research  concerning the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed papers from billboards and advertisings diplays. I have so far collected more than 40.000 images. Impressed by camera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), scanned in a videoclip, or re-built in collages, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to paper lacerations.

I think in the lacerated advertisings – and in paper mutation – is recognizable the “unwrapped” city, self-destroying in the messages, self-regenerating and self-reproducing in new visual elements, often contradictory, dissonant, discordant, but still surprisingly vital.

This picture (reproduced on a pictorial canvas ) is not from a ripped and decomposed publicity poster. It’s a magnification of cracks

I saw on a flank of a railway carriage.   

The canvas was recently displayed at Roberto Alborghetti Show (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) in the  enchanting  Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from October 6, 2012, to January 15, 2013.

IT’ S A “GLORIOUS MORNING” WHEN “SPRING ARRIVES” : MY ARTWORKS PHOTO GALLERY

© Roberto Alborghetti

On kind request, I’m glad to dedicate this post to “Lacer/actions” artworks I used to create GLORIOUS MORNING CLIP with the beautiful piano solo by Canadian composer and pianist Gene Emerson. When I heard her “Glorious Morning” composition I immediately thought to some of my recent artworks (images of torn poster and urban signs). I think these artworks try to interpret the sense of Gene’s piano solo inspired by a Rumi‘s ode.

Gene says : “Glorious Morning is really an ode to a beautiful, warm and sunny morning at the beginning of Spring, – after long cold winter – when the world is changing, the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. Such a great change in nature has inspired me to compose this piece. Also, I must say, I have found Rumi’s lovely poem ‘Spring Arrives’ is very close to the spirit of this piece. His poem is so much full of optimism. He throws away all dogmas, religious fanaticism and pessimism. His free spirited vision of love and passion for life is so overwhelming. Although the poem is 800 years old, but Rumi’s description of flowers and trees would never become old and it is very relevant for our Spring in 2012…”

I want to thank all the people who appreciated the videoclip throughout the web!

“GLORIOUS MORNING”: RUMI’S POEM INSPIRED A GREAT PIANO SOLO BY GENE EMERSON IN A CLIP WITH ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI ‘S ART

Music is colour, image, movement, poetry… and a GLORIOUS MORNING too! This is the title of a great original piano solo by Gene Emerson, from Canada. Gene is a talented composer and pianist. I was really amazed and fascinated by her music. When I heard her “Glorious Morning” I immediately thought to some of my “Lacer/actions” artworks.

 And the idea to collaborate with Gene for a clip became stronger when I read her words about the meaning she gave to her beautiful piano composition.

Gene says : “Glorious Morning is really an ode to a beautiful, warm and sunny morning at the beginning of Spring, – after long cold winter – when the world is changing, the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. Such a great change in nature has inspired me to compose this piece. Also, I must say, I have found Rumi‘s lovely poem ‘Spring Arrives’ is very close to the spirit of this piece. His poem is so much full of optimism. He throws away all dogmas, religious fanaticism and pessimism. His free spirited vision of love and passion for life is so overwhelming. Although the poem is 800 years old, but Rumi’s description of flowers and trees would never become old and it is very relevant for our Spring in 2012…”

 

So we decided to create a videoclip, trying to mix Gene music and my artworks (images of torn posters and urban signs). I selected nine pics that recall me in some ways the  wonderful melody and the surprising Gene Emerson’s  performance. So, enjoy this video. Great music and colors for a dreamin’ and relaxing moment…
