Le “Lacer/azioni” di Roberto Alborghetti per EXPO MILANO 2015. Le quattro immagini mostrate nel videoclip non sono dipinti o composizioni realizzate al computer, ma scene reali del mondo reale. Come tutte le altre decine di migliaia di “lacer/azioni”, esse sono state riprese da manifesti pubblicitari decomposti, crepe e graffi naturali, materiali urbani e industriali.

MY “VISUALS” 4  E X P O  MILANO 2015

“LaceR/Actions” is 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 (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 75.000 images). 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.

One of my most recent shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last two 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) from July 12 to September 7, 2014.

My recent “The Ghost Bus” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015) with a great short films premiere on March 27, at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. My next solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2015″) is sheduled on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on July 3-4-5, 2015, in a special and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art.

In 2012 the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, CTBUH, has awarded the Palazzo Lombardia as the Best European Tall Building: “In a city known for history and fashion, the tower is perfectly attuned to the urban environment. More than simply a tower, the project creates a cohesive blend of parks and commercial space, with an appropriate local flair.” ( Anthony Wood CTBUH)

Palazzo Lombardia, with its 163 meters heigth, it is the second tallest building in Italy. It is in fact a complex of buildings housing the new offices of Lombardy Regional Government. It was designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, a well reputed architectural company based in New York.

The Lombardy Palace is close to the new Porta Nuova (“New Gate”) area that is undergoing major construction activities like the Unicredit Tower. Completed in 2012, with its 231 meters it is the highest building in Italy. Milan will host the EXPO 2015 Universal Exposition and also for such reason is undergoing an important development phase with many new buildings contracted to world-famous architects.
