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 canvas, 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 gallery showing some of the 40.000 pics captured 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 forthcoming project, “Contemplations and Lacer/actions”, is inspired by Thomas of Olera (or Bergamo) Scripts (1563-1631). “Words from the Past, Images from the Future and an Experience for Today”.

 “MOTS EN MAJUSCULES”

Purusha Hontoy

 *

Les mots déchirent l’espace

Et les lettres majuscules

Éclaboussent le temps

*

La peur d’être perdue pour le monde

Ronge mes sangs historiques

Suis-je née pour me taire?

 *

J’ai mal aux verbes et aux phrases

Que j’aimerais tant former

Pour tenter ma pénétration universelle

 *

La peur d’être perdue pour le monde

Ronge mes sangs historiques

Suis-je née pour me taire?

 *

Tant de lettres au bout des lèvres

Et aux milliers de papiers chiffonnés

Gardées dans un tiroir

 *

Qui a la clé de mes chants silences?

“SUNSET BURNISHED HILLS… FALLEN SOLDIERS WEEP”: HAIGA # 3 BY ~MEREDITH AND ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Sweet child,

pale

with

flu

limply resting against cool plaster.

Grandma’s Purple Quilt.

*

Sunset burnished hills.

Lavender Dusk settles in.

fallen soldiers weep.

*_* sigh.

*

Yin/yang poster world

grabbing blurs of yesterday.

Flowing thought bleeds ink.

© Poem Copyright~Meredith

This is the third composition created by fellow blogger, Meredith (healingminds@WordPress.com) for a four composition series titled “Dreams & Lacer/actions: Therapeutical Haiga”. Meredith – who lives in Lafayette, Indiana (USA) – shared a preview of my most recent images taken from torn posters and cities walls during my trips in the Netherlands and Italy. And, she began to create verses…

The third “Lacer/actions” art piece which inspired Meredith’s verses doesn’t come from torn posters. It is a sort of special preview about a new direction, or section or a new kind of images concerning my research of urban signs… I will talk about it very soon. I saw this “visual situation” in Milan. As all my pieces, it’s natural, realistic and not manipulated or enhanced image.

Meredith wrote this note about her verses and my art: 

I have very mixed feelings about them because they feel very transparent to me.  But, that is  art, and as I send this off I feel a sense of sending myself.  This picture touches me deeply, and I decided to not to use any other text than the haiku.”

I thank Meredith for this collaboration which is also a particular experimentation based on colors, images, words, thoughts, emotions and sensorial perception.

ABOUT MEREDITH

Meredith (www.healingminds.wordpress.com) writes from a rich text based in theater, art, and design training. Also rooted from the soil of personal experience, Meredith writes about mental health and its challenges; her value of developing creative pursuits as part of the equation for living a satisfying life in the face of mental illness and recovery include yoga, dance, writing, and photography. 

Meredith’s professional background began in directing and choreography.  Her education in dance and theater lent equal weight to creating movement and learning projects for school children, grades K thru 12, and mentoring independent theater projects for high school students. When mental illness changed the landscape of her life, Meredith returned to school and redirected her passions toward quieter pursuits in architectural design.  Most recently, her love for writing and well-being generate roomy, new ideas about beauty and life, and she writes about mindful living from a deeper understanding.

SCENE FROM A DROWNED WORLD… BUT IT’S NOT A PAINTING!

 

© Roberto Alborghetti

No, it’s not a painting. It’s just one of my 35.000 Lacer/actions pieces. It’s an absolutely random image, not maniputated or digitally enhanced. I took it for my research about “The Torn (publi)City” (ripped posters and urban signs). It seems coming from a mysterious and drowned world. Or from our deep unconscious… I “captured” this image – the first of a series of 5 – along Netherlands streets.

 ABOUT LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT

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, a fortress in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from September 27 to November 4, 2012.
