AN “ART INSTALLATION” THAT AMSTERDAM DOESN’T KNOW TO HAVE… SO, LET’S BRING BACK OUR EYES ON THE STREETS…

  

This is the incredible big container where I took my images from (see my previous post:“4GOT10 TEARS” ON THE CONTAINER NEAR THE ROYAL PALACE )

It was located in Amsterdam centre – near the Royal Palace, in the very heart of the city – outside a building yard. Workers were putting in it every sort of materials. And passers-by didn’t noticed it at all… On a side of the big container I saw something… spectacular. A sort of “public art installation” that Amsterdam doesn’t know to have.

The four parts in which the container was divided showed four incredible scenes. They were a sort of thin paper films left when someone had taken away the posters.An unusual and compelling combination – white paper film, iron, rust, red, grey and green colors of the container – originated something great for my eyes. 

On request, I’m glad to present another selection of the images I took around the big container. All my “Lacer/actions” artworks are realistic, natural and not manipulated images.  So, enjoy them. Yes, they are pure street art. And we have to bring back our eyes on the streets, where we may find compelling open air galleries…         

ABOUT ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI’S LACER/ACTIONS ART

LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban signs and landscapes, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped papers from billboards and advertisings diplays. I have so far collected more than 35.000 images. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in a video clip, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations. I think in the lacerated advertisings 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. 

Some “Lacer/Actions” artworks were published in a booklet-portfolio: Pics of torn (publi)city”.  In July 2010, thirty thousand people visited my show “The Four Elements of LaceR/Actions” during the three days exhibition at Oriocenter (Milano Bergamo Orio Airport, Italy).Myartworks are also taking part of experiences about sensorial and emotional perceptions (sinestesys) concerning kinesiologic tests. In October 2010 I participated to “Parallax AF” in London (La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade). One of my artwork will be kept at the new Contemporary Art Museum will open next September in Marche region (Italy). The next big Lacer/actions Show will take place in the enchanting XIII Century Rocca Aldobrandesca, an incredibile fortress in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from September 27 to November 4, 2012. An “The End of The World” event…

WHERE ARE YOU? FIND YOURSELF IN THE LACER/ACTIONS UNIVERSE…

This is one of my recent Lacer/actions artworks, Images of Torn (publi)City”. Someone could define it as an expression of dripping techniques. Someone (again) could tell me that it is so similar to some contemporary art  paintings… Abstract paintings.   I only say that the image is absolutely natural, spontaneous and realistic… as all the others (more than 37.000…) I have been catching so far. So, find yourself in the Lacer/actions Universe… and guess where I took the image  from…

THAT INCREDIBLE COLORS PALETTE BEHIND MAGNA PLAZA / THE AMSTERDAM’S LACER/ACTIONS FILES #2

This is the second photo gallery about my “Amsterdam‘s Lacer/actions Files” dedicated to a three series of images I “captured” in Netherlands during a recent trip. Also in Amsterdam I gathered lot of pics, absolutely realistic, as all the others I collected so far. Along a street behind Magna Plaza – a big shopping center in the very heart of Amsterdam – I was attracted by an incredible “palette” located on a door hiding a sort of warehouse. Rugs, papers, dust, colors residuals and other materials left by torn posters gave origin to some fascinating visuals in which we have no problems to  perceive styles, characters and shapes of the well known contemporary art. And these images (now transferred on canvas) are another proof about fonts that have inspired a lot of modern art painters. So, enjoy my “Amsterdam’s Lacer/actions Files #2”. Public art on public places.

LACER/ACTIONS PHOTO GALLERY: THERAPEUTICAL COLORS FOR SPRINGTIME

Fellow bloggers suggested me to gather in a photo gallery all the “Spring Wings” images series that I posted during last week. So, I exceptionally  present eight artworks coming from one of the most astonishing torn posters I ever seen so far during my “Lacer/actions” research about ripped ads and urban signs. It’s a sort of Easter egg ‘s surprise…and a way to thank so many people who appreciate my artworks. That huge torn poster was located in Lecco, a beautiful town on Como Lake (Italy). The incredible actions and re-actions made by time, weather and environmental conditions (rain, light, smog, humidity…) produced a capturing and harmonious mash-up of dyes and shapes. Therapeutical colors for springtime…  Enjoy them!

IS IT A TEARDROP? OR A PEARL OF SUN? OR A DEW-DROP? : AN “HAIGA” FOR EASTER

 

And then I’ll tell them

to guess if it’s a teardrop

or a pearl of sun

or a dew-drop…”

David Maria Turoldo

(From Poem: “For Easter Morning” )

***

E poi gli dirò di indovinare

se sia una lacrima

o una perla di sole

o una goccia di rugiada…”

David Maria Turoldo

(Da “Per il Mattino di Pasqua”)

A special Haiga to wish a very Happy Easter… The words are from a beautiful poem (“For Easter Morning” ) by a great Italian poet, David Maria Turoldo (1916-1992). Artwork comes from my “Spring Wings” Lacer/actions series: it’s not a painting; it is a realistic pictures, as the other 35.000 images I have created so far for my Lacer/actions project about torn posters and urban signs.

DANCIN’ BEES… IMAGE #6 FROM “THE SPRING WINGS” LACER/ACTIONS SERIES

 

Till tomorrow April 1st, I’m glad to share a special preview of a seven images series that I titled “The Spring Wings”. The whole series will be followed and concluded (on monday April 2) by a videoclip in which I’ll show a “live view” of the incredibile torn poster from which I’ve made my artworks.

I think it’s one of the most astonishing ripped poster I ever seen so far during my long research about torn ads and urban signs. It was located in Lecco, a beautiful town on Como Lake (Italy). The incredible actions and re-actions made by time, weather and environmental conditions (rain, light, smog, humidity…) produced a capturing and harmonious mash-up of colors and shapes. I really had the luck to be in the right time in the right place… (in the following days the billboard was covered with new publicity posters).

The huge and whole torn paper advertising showed me pre-existing images that were crushed and de-structured in thousands of particles which presented fascinating colored streams and waves dancing on a completely white background. The various sections of the torn poster reminded me suggestions about springtime colors…as we may see also in the 6th image of the series.
