Sessanta secondi per ricordare la Giornata della Liberazione italiana dal nazifascismo e come tributo di speranza all’Italia nei giorni difficili del covid-19. Le mie opere astratte e visive – sono macro foto di manifesti pubblicitari strappati e decomposti su cartelloni pubblicitari all’aperto – per un’esperienza cromo musicale che ricorda il 25 aprile 1945 … Ho destrutturato e ri-strutturato i colori della bandiera italiana (bianco, rosso e verde) come omaggio al sogno di libertà proveniente da una nazione e da un popolo.

A MASK DOES NOT PREVENT US FROM DREAMING OF A COLORFUL WORLD

Roberto Alborghetti with mask

A mask and a pair of gloves do not take away the freedom to dream, see and imagine a world of colors and art. Perhaps these days of total lockdown are an invitation to rethink our lifestyles and also to better observe the world around us. In the photo: my showroom with pictures for my Lacer/actions project. They are not paintings, but macro photos of the reality that is around us, in the streets, in the squares, in the places where there is always something to see from a different point of view.

Una mascherina e un paio di guanti non ci tolgono la libertà di sognare, vedere e immaginare un mondo di colori e di arte. Forse, queste giornate di lockdown totale, sono un invito a ripensare i nostri stili di vita e, pure, ad osservare meglio il mondo che circonda. Nella foto: my showroom with pictures for my Lacer/action project. Non sono dipinti, ma macro photos della realtà che è attorno a noi, nelle strade, nelle piazze, nei luoghi dove c’è sempre qualcosa da vedere da un differente punto di vista.

THE “CRACKS” FILES / EXPLORING METAL AND PLASTIC SURFACES

CRACKS  © ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI  - REALISTIC IMAGE - # 1

© ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI 

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project which investigates and explores the incredible dimension of the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings billboards. Since 2009 I entered the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks (yes, cracks are maybe another metaphor of Life, as well as the waste-paper…). All the Cracks pics are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images. So, welcome to Cracks world, where matter is broken but not split…

BLACK FRIDAY, BLACK WEBS: MACRO PHOTOS ON SIGNS IN THE ASPHALT

 

These abstract and macro photos are of “Lacer/actions”, 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, like these black webs on the asphalt   (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…). Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions.
