IT’S NOT A WORK BY ROTELLA OR VILLEGLE’, BUT AN ABSOLUTELY RANDOM BILLBOARD I SAW AND DOCUMENTED IN ROME FOR MY “LACER/ACTIONS” PROJECT…

I think it’s  one of the finest ” lacer/actions ” I captured with my camera in the last few weeks. What you see is not a collage built and created deliberately with my hands, joining and sticking piece by piece, but a real, “natural” and completely collage. It’s  the result of various and different overlaps – which took place over weeks and months – of advertising publicity posters with different contents. I found this “masterpiece” of randomness in the center of Rome, near Piazza della Repubblica. A few hours later it has been deleted and covered by other paper advertisings.

It was a big billboard, sizes 2 meters x 2. I was lucky enough to catch and store it to my “Lacer/actions” archive which now counts about 60,000 images (all completely random) I fixed and collected around the world.

I think that this random work, as well as the thousands I have captured and documented so far , would really aroused the envy of Mimmo Rotella and  Jacques Villeglè… These artists worked advertising posters snatching them from the billboards. But I think that the true and genuine art – a sort of evolution of the same street art – consists instead of leaving the torn and decomposed publicity posters on the walls, making a really and natural fine show and transforming our cities in public and free outdoor “galleries”…

NON E’ UN’OPERA DI ROTELLA O VILLEGLE’, MA UN TABELLONE ASSOLUTAMENTE CASUALE CHE HO VISTO E DOCUMENTATO A ROMA PER IL MIO PROGETTO “LACER/AZIONI” 

E’ una delle più belle “lacer/azioni” che ho catturato, con la mia fotocamera, in queste ultime settimane. Quello che vedete non è un collage costruito e creato con le mie mani, unendo pezzo a pezzo, ma un vero e proprio collage “naturale”, assolutamente casuale, frutto di varie sovrapposizioni – avvenute nell’arco di settimane e di mesi – di manifesti pubblicitari dei più diversi contenuti. Questo “capolavoro” della casualità l’ho scoperto nel centro di Roma, nei pressi di piazza della Repubblica. Prnso che ora sia stato già ricoperto e cancellato da altri manifesti pubblicitari.

Era comunque un grande tabellone, almeno 2 metri x 2. Ho avuto la fortuna di catturarlo e consegnarlo al mio archivio di “Lacer/azioni”, che conta ormai più di 55.000 immagini, tutte assolutamente casuali, fissate e registrate in giro per il mondo.

Penso che quest’opera, tra le migliaia che ho documentato, avrebbe davvero suscitato l’invidia di Mimmo Rotella (o di Jacques Villeglè). Questi artisti lavorano i manifesti pubblicitari strappandoli dai tabelloni. Ma io penso che la vera arte, più genuina, sia invece quella di lasciare i manifesti lacerati sui muri, perché facciano bella mostra di sé e trasformando le nostre città in  pubbliche “gallerie” all’aperto.

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters 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 decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this post  showing one of the 40.000 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 new project “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations) is inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts (1563-1631). “Words from the Past, Images from the Future, an Experience for Today”.
