I heard a sound from heaven, like the sound of many waters, and like the sound of a great thunder.

E udì dal cielo un suono forte, come il fragore dell’oceano e come il rombo del tuono.

About “LACER/ACTIONS” PROJECT by ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

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 55.000 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 (“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). In the last two years I was 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.

Now I’m working on “The Ghost Bus” project, in collaboration with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015).

My next solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2.0”) will be running on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on 3-4-5 July, 2015, in a special and spectacular setting: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art.

 

 

STREET ART OR JUST PART OF THE STREET? SCENES FROM A (DISFIGURED?) WALL…

© ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Art of the street or only part of the street? Is street art illegal? Is street art vandalism? Yes, these are the usual questions when we see some writings on public (or private) spaces… Here, in the pics, some details from the dock situated in Lenno, on Lake Como shore (Italy). Free art or vandal act? Pop art or just a disfigured wall? Everybody have their answers. But some colors and shapes are really interesting… (Isn’t it?)

THE MAGICAL WOOD SCULPTURES CREATED BY PIERO MARCHESINI… SCENES AND CHARACTERS FROM MITHOLOGY, NATURE AND FAIRY TALES

In recent weeks I had the pleasure of visiting an exhibition at the medieval Baptistery in Lenno on Lake Como. Piero Marchesini – a distinguished gentleman and artist – exhibited his beautiful art pieces. Marchesini carves wood, carrying out really lovely works. He lives in Lipomo, Como City, and sculpture is his passion. He has already showed his creations around the world raising lot of attention. Marchesini loves to work on subjects recalling mythology, nature, characters from fairy tales and legends and biblical scenes.

He carves wood – walnut, lime, ash, hornbeam, boxwood, maple, olive, cherry-wood and so on – with great mastery and skill and he is able to create works of singular fascination and charm. More than words, count the pictures, just from the exhibition of Lenno. His next show is planned in Menaggio, on Lake Como, from 30 July to 5 August, 2013 at the Art Gallery (Garibaldi square) overlooking the lake. It’s another opportunity to see its stunning creations.
