MACRO PHOTOS OF “PAVEMENT CRACKS”…VIDEO-TRIBUTE TO ANNIE LENNOX

 

They’re not paintings. They’re macro photos of pavement cracks by Roberto Alborghetti (from “Lacer/actions” project). “Pavement Cracks” (The Scumfrog Remix) by Annie Lennox. “Where is my comfort zone? A simple place to call my own. ‘Cause everything I want to be. Comes crashing down on me. And it don’t show up in the pavement cracks. I can’t even recognize my tracks. You and I can’t turn the whole thing back. Ooh I wish you well (Love don’t show in the pavement cracks. There will be no turning back)”.

Created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” project and research about torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, industrial matters and urban decomposition.

Yes, there is an abstract world under our feet … These are some of the images I took walking along the streets of Florence (Italy). They’re macro of a cracked pedestrian crossing. The pictures are part of LaceR/Actions”, 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. Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions!

NATURAL CRACKS AND SCRATCHES IN LONDON… STREETS LIKE A CONTEMPORAY ART GALLERY

© Roberto Alborghetti – Lacer/actions

These abstract photos, I took walking along the streets of London, are part of “LaceR/Actions”, 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. Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decomposition.

One of shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (2012-2103, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last years I worked on these projects:  “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts, 1563-1631), “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids), “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” (11 installations for Fai Private Collection, Italy). My works are part of Contemporary Art Collection (Mercatello sul Metauro, Marche, Italy) and participating to “An Exhibition, a Restoration” in Norcia (Umbria, Italy).

“The Ghost Bus/A visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015). I produced two short films which were premiered on March 27, 2015 at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. An Italian premiere took place in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena) on October 24-25, 2015. 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. With fashion designer and artist Mitrani Yarden we have developed ideas for the fashion world, as the Volcano Dress (e-book and short film) and an innovative fabric prints series.

THE VIDEOCLIP: SIGNS O’ THE TIMES… ABSTRACT PHOTOS OF CRACKS ‘N’ SCRATCHES

Twenty “signs o’ the times”. Twenty scenes from the walls of a city (Bari, Italy). In this HD videoclip I present some of the pictures I recently gathered for my “Lacer/actions” project-research. As I usually like to say, they’re not paintings, they’re not created by the brush of a painter, but simply by the case. They’re abstract and macro photos I usually take while I’m walking along the streets: I collected so far more than 90.000 images.
