My upcoming solo exhibition – “Colors Of An Apocalypse 2015″ – will take place in the amazing Romanesque Baptistery on Lake Como, Italy, on July 3-4-5,  in the beautiful Lenno town.

The Baptistery stands 50 meters from the lake shore and it’s considered one of the most stunning examples of Romanesque art in Northen Italy.  Dedicated to St. John (The Baptist) it was built in the 11th Century. Its octagonal structure looks incredibly simple and essential: we see a squared bell tower and an apse pointed to north. The vault, the portal with three archs, fragments of medieval frescos and a baroque pictorial cycle are other interesting elements of the temple.

The octagonal Baptistery and its enchanting structure will give strenght and evocative power to my exhibition which will show 25 works from my “Lacer/actions” project, included 3 silk scarves (limited edition) I created in collaboration with textiles designer Bruno Boggia and his Studio in Como. Each artwork will be introduced by a phrase  from “The Apocalypse of John”. Images and words to suggest a trip through hopes and tragedies of human life and beings.

  • Opening Hours / Friday July 5: h.4-10 pm; Saturday 4 and Sunday 5: 10am-12am; 2,30 pm-10 pm. Venue: St. John Baptistery, Piazza XI Febbraio, Lenno (Comune Tremezzina), Lake  Como
  • Aperture mostra: venerdi 5 Luglio 2015, ore 16-22. Nelle giornate di sabato 4 e domenica 5 luglio: 10-12, 14,30 – 22,00. Il Battistero di San Giovanni si trova in Piazza XI Febbraio.

THE VIDEOCLIP: UNDER THE SKY OF ROME / RANDOM AND ABSTRACT IMAGES FROM “THE ETERNAL CITY”…

Twelve random and abstract images by Roberto Alborghetti for “Lacer/actions” project. They were taken in Rome along streets and in public areas. These pictures aren’t paintings, but realistic and natural images of cracks, scratches and torn and decomposed publicity posters.

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of decomposed posters, cracks, scratches 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 disfigured posters and natural cracks give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing some works from the collection of about 50.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

A 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. His recent 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, 2013 and 2014 ), “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” (11 installations for Fai Private Collection, Italy). Roberto Alborghetti 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.

 

“AN EXHIBITION, A RESTORATION” IN THE MEDIEVAL NORCIA (UMBRIA, ITALY): 416 ARTISTS ON SHOW (INCLUDING ME AND MY “SHOOTING STAR”…)

 

 

Guest Writer: Stefano Alberti

 

On July 12, 2014, the 40th edition of “An exhibition, A restoration” was inaugurated in Norcia (Perugia, Umbria, Italy) with the aim to restore and to preserve the artistic heritage of the famous Umbrian town.

This year, the initiative has the participation of 416 Italian artists who by their works they intended to support the work of protection of the altarpiece of the “Coronation of the Virgin” by Jacopo Siculo (1541), which requires a sound-absorbing curtain. The exhibition is displaced in the enchanting monumental and medieval complex of San Francesco until 7 September 2014. The event is promoted by the “An exhibition, A restoration” Committee, with its president prof. Giuseppe Urso, and by the City Council of Norcia.

Among the works participating in this worthy initiative, there is also a unique piece of Roberto Alborghetti created as part of his project “Lacer/actions”. It is a collage made of about 300 small pieces of scrap paper from torn and decomposed advertising posters which are one of the subjects of his visual research, together with natural and random cracks, scratches and urban “signs”. The work presented in Norcia is titled “Shooting Star” and measures 53 × 35. Also it is shown in the official Catalogue published for an event which is going to attract keen interest, many art lovers and tourists in the homeland of St. Benedict, patron of Europe.

The forty years of “An exhibition restoration” began thanks to the initiative of the Committee President, prof. Giuseppe Urso , along with a dozen families (later came to 30) and the support of more than 100 contemporary and successful artists (from Italy and abroad); among them: Manfredi, Castellani, Maccari, Caruso, Greek, Dorazio, Guttridge. Every year they donated artworks for the creation of a show whose proceeds were donated to the restoration of an art masterpiece.

“Along the years – prof. Giuseppe Urso says – a friendship has been created between us and the artists. Thanks to them we have been restored so far about 30 works. The last one was the sixteenth-Century wooden sculpture of St. Claude and St. Roch from Serravalle di Norcia. Now the focus is on the beautiful “Coronation of the Virgin” painted by Jacopo Siculo in 1541”.

Other four new works from my “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” series. All the eleven installations are now part of private collection of Fai Service, in Italy, who participated to this “experimentation” curated and produced by “Passepartout” (Bergamo, Italy).

After being re-produced on canvases, lithographic prints and textiles (silk and cotton), my images about decomposed publicity posters, cracks and “road signs” have found a new way to be showned and represented. Now they are on aluminium plates… Aluminium metal gives brilliancy, depth and strenght to colors and shapes, reaching chromatic effects and emphasizing textures “as an unmistakable complement of interior design and decoration…”
