CRACKS CHROMOTHERAPY #1 / BLACK, RED, YELLOW AND GREEN… (VIDEOCLIP)

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outdoor  advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). I love also to document crevices and chaps on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. So, I invite you to enter the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection. My eyes and cameras discovered, in cracks magnifications, stunning textures ( and all this is what we usually consider waste materials…).  My Cracks are not paintings, but realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this video.

CRACKS AS MIMOSAS… / ABSTRACT SERIES TO CELEBRATE MARCH 8, THE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

***

These abstract yellow and green scenes – I took them from a rusty iron gate… – remind the colors of Mimosas, the flower which is the symbol in Italy of March 8.  

The International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8th March. In Italy it is traditional on this day to give yellow Mimosa flowers to women as a sign of respect and solidarity. Women give Mimosa to each other as well. Mimosa (Acacia Dealbata) was introduced to Europe from Australia in 1820. It is probably the first tree to flower – as early as January – and its yellow flowers cheer up the winter landscape.

The International Women’s Day began in 1908 to commemorate the 129 women who died in a fire in a factory in Chicago in that year, and also commemorates two other international events: a strike by women garment workers on March 8, 1857 in New York, which led to the foundation of the first women’s union in the US, and a strike by Russian women on the same day in 1917. In 1945 the Union of Italian Women declared that this special date, March 8, should be set aside to celebrate womanhood across the country.

WARNING: THESE AREN’T PAINTINGS,

THEY ARE “LACER/ACTIONS”

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). I’ve been also researching on metal and plastic surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. This is the wonderful world of Cracks… My eyes and cameras discovered in cracks magnifications amazings textures.  Also my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this picture, which is not a painting, but a real scene from this real world… These abstract yellow and green recall me the colors of Mimosa…

NEW VIDEOCLIP: JOURNEY FROM THE CENTER OF A BLACK AND YELLOW CRACK…

***

“Journey From The Center Of A Crack” is a new videoclip made for Lacer/actions Project. The random picture comes from a wall in Amsterdam city center (2013).

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of decomposed posters, cracks 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 disfigured posters and natural cracks  give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this video showing one artwork from the collection of about 50.000 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 recent projects:  “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts, 1563-1631) and “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids).

“CRACKS”: THE MOST VIEWED VIDEO ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL IN 2013

*

“Cracks” is the most viewed clip on my YouTube channel in 2013. It’s a 30 seconds video which shows some of my “cracks works” created for  Lacer/actions Project. 

Close to my researches about torn and decomposed publicity posters, I worked  on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. So, I entered the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered as a life’s metaphor. Yes, cracks as “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection.
Through cracks magnifications I discovered other stunning textures in what we usually consider waste materials.

My Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this videoclip, which was the most viewed on my YouTube channel during 2013.

Someone told me that CRACKS – and all my LACER/ACTIONS researches about torn and decomposed publicity posters – are a sort of  “Wabi-sabi” expression (it’s the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay…) 

In fact, “Wabi-sabi” celebrates cracks and crevices and all what is marking time, weather, ages and so on… Architect Tadao Ando says: “Wabi-sabi reminds us that we are all but transient beings on this planet-that our bodies as well as the material world around us are in the process of returning to the dust from which we came. Through wabi-sabi, we learn to embrace liver spots, rust, and frayed edges, and the march of time they represent.” (Read more atWhat Is Wabi-Sabi)
