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 lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition, as you may see in this “postcard” reproducing one of the 40.000 images captured by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

His next big show (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) will take place at Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany, from September 27 to November 4, 2012 .

IT’S A VERY INDUSTRIAL PICTURE… SNOW, CLOUDS AND PEOPLE ALL SEEM TO DRIFT IN THE SAME DIRECTION

DREAMS & LACER/ACTIONS”: THERAPEUTIC HAIGA # 2 BY ~MEREDITH AND ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Faded faces stroll

     the walls of layered living.

    Yesterday softens.

*

I saw granite snow

     and touched the oneness.

     Ancient stories freeze.

*

Umbrella walkers

     dot the misty,morning streets.

     Tissue clouds bring snow.

This is the second 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 second “Lacer/actions” art piece which inspired Meredith’s verses comes from a display I saw on a square at Como Lake (Italy). It is natural, and not manipulated or enhanced image.

Meredith wrote this note about the image: “This picture looked both very industrial and like a barren canyon in winter.  Both places may seem bleak but I see life.  Snow, clouds, and people all seem to drift in the same direction, whether moved by snow or racing, tissue clouds. I could not help but make a copy of this photo to run my fingers across as I listened to the whispered tales of mottled surfaces.” 

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.

MY BEST WISHES WITH THIS SPECIAL “HAIGA”

 

Dark night

Snowflakes and frost

Before the New Day

 

Notte scura

Fiocchi di neve e gelo

Prima del Giorno Nuovo

 This Season’s Greetings card fuses, in an “Haiga”, words (“Haiku”) and visual art. The image (lithograph, 50×70) is part of “Lacer/actions” collection, concerning my research about torn posters and urban signs. I thank my “haiga” teacher: poet, musician and producer Joshua Sellers, from West Memphis (Arkansas, Usa).

 Questo cartoncino augurale fonde – in quello che la cultura nipponica definisce “Haiga” – parole (“Haiku”) ed arte visuale. L’immagine (litografia, 50×70) fa parte della mia raccolta “Lacer/azioni”, relativa alla ricerca dei particolari dei manifesti pubblicitari lacerati e dei “segni” urbani. Ringrazio il mio “maestro di haiga”, il poeta, musicista e produttore Joshua Sellers, di West Memphis (Arkansas, Usa).

 ABOUT HAIGA

Haiga is a style of Japanese painting based on the aesthetics of haikai, from which haiku poetry derives, which often accompanied such poems in a single piece. Like the poetic forms it accompanied, haiga was based on simple, yet often profound, observations of the everyday world. Stephen Addiss points out that “since they are both created with the same brush and ink, adding an image to a haiku poem was… a natural activity.”

Just as haiku often internally juxtapose two images, haiga may also contain a juxtaposition between the haiku itself and the art work. The art work does not necessarily directly represent the images presented in the haiku. Stylistically, haiga vary widely based on the preferences and training of the individual painter, but generally show influences of formal Kanō school painting, minimalist Zen painting, and Ōtsu-e, while sharing much of the aesthetic attitudes of the nanga tradition. Some were reproduced as woodblock prints. The subjects painted likewise vary widely, but are generally elements mentioned in the calligraphy, or poetic images which add meaning or depth to that expressed by the poem.
