LaceR/Actions Project

COLLAGE OF WASTE PAPER PIECES FROM TORN

AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS

            2013, CMS.30X40 (ON WOOD)

 *

This work is a collage created by Roberto Alborghetti with more than 140 small paper pieces collected along the streets as waste material from outdoor torn and decomposed publicity posters.

*

LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban signs.

Roberto Alborghetti has collected so far around the world more than 40.000 images.

Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages (as the work shown above) or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn publicity posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition.

Cracks is part of Roberto Alborghetti ‘s Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings (realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints and textiles or re-built on collages). Since 2009 Roberto Alborghetti has been also workin’ on metal, plastic or stony surfaces and platings. So, he 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 and “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection.

Roberto Alborghetti discovered  through cracks magnifications other astonishing and interesting textures in what people usually consider waste materials. Lacer/actions and Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not manipulated or enhanced images.

THE CRACKS WEEK: THE 7th IMAGE

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).

Since 2009 I’ve been also workin’ on another matter. Not paper but 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.

My eyes and cameras discovered, in cracks magnifications, another astonishing textures in what we usually consider waste materials. Also my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this picture. More Cracks will be on line soon in a special gallery… 

FROM BLUE TO GREEN: IMAGE #4 FROM “THE SPRING WINGS” LACER/ACTIONS SERIES

 

Till next sunday April 1, I’m glad to share a special preview of a seven images series that I titled “The Spring Wings”. The whole series will be followed and concluded by a videoclip in which I’ll show a “live view” of that incredibile billboard from which I’ve made my artworks.

I think it’s one of the most astonishing torn posters I ever seen so far during my long research about ripped ads and urban signs. It was located in Lecco, a beautiful town on Como Lake (Italy). The incredible actions and re-actions made by time, weather and environmental conditions (rain, light, smog, humidity…) produced a capturing and harmonious mash-up of colors and shapes. I really had the luck to be in the right time in the right place… (in the following days the billboard was covered with new publicity posters).

The huge and whole torn paper advertising showed me pre-existing images that were crushed and de-structured in thousands of particles which presented fascinating colored streams and waves dancing on a completely white background. The various sections of the torn poster reminded me suggestions about springtime colors…as we may see also in the 4th image of the series.

ABOUT MY “LACER/ACTIONS ART 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, an incredibile fortress in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from September 27 to November 4, 2012. An “The End of The World” event…
