Cracks & Corrosions like Maps to Nowhere… These are some macro and abstract photos I took walking along the streets of Bitonto, a beautiful city in Apulia, Italy. They are part 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. 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.
These images give us the illusion of consulting imaginary paths, jealously guarded in the soul of so many of our cities.

This is my Top Video of 2017 : “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”, inspired by the wonderful quote by artist Leonard Cohen, who passed away during 2016. Cracks is part of Roberto Alborghetti’s Lacer/actions project-research about decomposed publicity posters, natural crevices and scratches, urban and industrial matters… This clip is dedicated to the wonderful world of cracks magnifications. The images are not paintings or digitally made works, but simply abstract photos of the reality around us… as the cracks…
