These are not modern art paintings or pop art works. They are just macro and abstract photos of details of a disfigured traffic sign… The pictures are part of my “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 120.000 photos taken across the world.
“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project concerning researches about decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban/industrial tokens. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to waste-paper and decomposed matters. Like the pictures above.

Are these modern art paintings? Are these pop art works? Are these acrylic pictorial paintings? No, they are just photos of details of big torn publicity posters on an outdoor advertisings billboard. For me, the street is a real free art gallery, where we can perceive wonderful pieces of art. The pictures above are part of my “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 110.000 photos taken across the world.

“IN CONVERSATION WITH ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI”: ITALIAN FLAVOUR IN THE LAND OF ROBIN HOOD (UK)

 

Guest Writer:  Inna Schutts, ACT Intern

Photos: Inna Schutts

I met Roberto on June 5, 2019 at Trattoria L’Oliva, a tiny Italian corner in the heart of Beeston. It was supposed to be a day full of pre planned interviews and meetings culminating with a long anticipated showcase of Roberto’s Ghost Bus ‘Roads’ Project in the evening.

Maybe it’s the Italian attitude that made the day so easygoing or maybe it’s just Roberto himself who happened to have very laid back and cheerful personality. Whatever it was, the interview with local Ey Up Notts TV station was very relaxed, the meetings were more like friendly chats and the evening was like a meet up with old friends.

After Trattoria L’Oliva the plan was to visit Lakeside Arts at the University of Nottingham but Roberto had another priority – he wanted to visit the most famous statue in Nottingham, that of Robin Hood.  So he went to pay his annual visit to the legendary hero of the area.   After revisiting Robin Hood and a short tram ride to University of Nottingham Lakeside Arts, Roberto had a chance to meet with Mark Dorrington, Keeper of Manuscripts & Special Collections and ask questions about the Weston Gallery’s current exhibition “Facts & Fantasies – Culture & Heritage of the Romantic Age c.1780-1840”.

Later in the evening the ACT team gathered for the last show preparations at The Garage / Gallery at Bartons.  Guests started arriving soon after.  Roberto was greeting people, many of whom he knew from previous visits to Beeston. The evening was a happy occasion for a reunion of what looked like, good friends.

And at 7pm the “In Conversation with… Roberto Alborghetti” began. It was an engaging interview lead by host presenter William Ranieri. The talk covered many areas of Roberto’s past and current work, his vision and inspiration, his love of food and life itself.  Many guests had questions regarding his books about Pope Frances and, unknown to many, facts of the Pope’s daily life.

Two hours flew by rather quickly but the audience was treated to Roberto’s Ghost Bus short film and still had a chance to talk to each other and Roberto afterwards. An ordinary Wednesday in a small British town of Beeston was full of Italian flavour everyone enjoyed.

THAT RUSTY “GHOST BUS” IS A PIECE OF HISTORY OF ENGLISH PUBLIC TRANSPORT

“The Ghost Bus” is back in the Land Of Robin Hood… Don’t miss the special event on next Wednesday June 5, 2019, from 7 pm at The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ, promoted by ACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) and its founder Marysia Zipser. This story began in Beeston-Nottingham in October 2014, when I spent some hours in Bartons huge garage of vintage buses and cars.

I  was really impressed by one of the oldest buses,  the so called “The Ghost Bus”, a piece of history of English public transport: it’s a URR 865 vehicle AEC Reliance made in 1956! Simon Barton told me that a vehicle-sister of the  “ghost bus” was documented in 1959 on a wonderful and unmissable film telling a beautiful journey through Italy by a group of English ladies and gentlemen (above: the original movie).  

So, I took lot of photos around that old bus and then I began to create for my  “Lacer/actions” project concerning realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials. The whole project consist of 3 short movies (included “Land Rover Mapping”) only for public performances. 

The Ghost Bus project with its short films and musical compositions, some from local singer-songwriter, Jeanie Barton means this one off event has come to its spiritual home. 

This special Ghost Bus event – “In Conversation with… .Roberto Alborghetti” takes place on Wednesday 5th June from 7 pm at The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ.

Tickets are available from Eventbrite: £12.50 | £8 — (£15 on the door)
