“THERE IS A CRACK IN EVERYTHING…”: 6.000 VIEWS FOR THIS VIDEO (YOUTUBE CHANNEL)

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 abstract photos of the reality. And of the cracks around us… The wonderful quote is by Leonard Cohen.

THE TORN (PUBLI)CITY: NUMBERS & CODES LEFT ON ADVERTISING BOARDS

© Roberto Alborghetti 

After the advertisement has been torn and removed from the billboards, traces and marks of ink, glue and residuals of paper can be glimpsed on the surface. In my opinion, this is a unique spectacle. An open-air exhibition. Our eye can read and admire strange shapes and a sort of codes – like the numbers – that only the time and the chance can decipher.

Also in this photogallery I have gathered some of the images I took around a big outdoor billboard located in Milan area (Italy).  The pictures are part of LaceR/Actions”, my 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 (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. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions! © Roberto Alborghetti

Dopo che la pubblicità è stata strappata e tolta dai tabelloni, si possono intravvedere, sulla superficie, tracce e segni di inchiostro, colla e residui di carta. A mio parere, tutto ciò costituisce uno spettacolo unico. Una mostra a cielo aperto. Il nostro occhio può leggere ed ammirare strane forme ed una sorta di codici che solo il caso e il fato possono decifrare. Penso che tutto ciò sia un linguaggio. E’ il codice espressivo della strada, che parla e comunica in un modo assolutamente sorprendente. Sì, sono convinto che questa sia vera e pura arte di strada, costruita in virtù di una forza che sfugge al nostro controllo. Sì, tutto molto suggestivo. Occorre essere subito pronti ad impressionare queste scene, parte del progetto “Lacer/azioni”…

THEY AREN’T PAINTINGS OR LAND MAPS SEEN FROM A SATELLITE. THEY ARE…

They are called artificial bumps, or speed bumps… They are buildings made of rubber placed by the Municipalities to induce to slow down, so that road safety improves. They are often used in an inappropriate and exaggerated way. Often they are mixed with pedestrian crossings, thus creating strange, bizarre hybrids, on the verge of legality.
I have found a way to see them in another way. That is: taking a close-up photograph when they are damaged and worn. Exciting “pictures” come out. They look like maps of a territory seen from from the top of a satellite… But obviously they are not paintings, but macro photographs for my “Lacer / Actions” project.

“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project concerning researches about decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban/industrial tokens. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to waste-paper and decomposed matters. Like the picture above.

“A NEW LIGHT ON THE WALL OF TIME”: F. CORSI REVIEWS MY ART PROJECT

 

They aren’t paintings… They are macro photos of Lacer/actions.

Review by FRANCESCO CORSI, ArtInGenio, Florence

Roberto Alborghetti observes and contemplates those objects that are caught in a state of abandonment as the extreme consequence of their being significant objects. Objects that have exhausted their life cycle. Scrap where the artist takes the extreme meaning of things. Because things are loved even when they have ceased their mere function as usables.

There is a tenderness for the things of the world that can only exist in those who want to read the meaning of being. A life that is awareness of the ruins of time, which has assumed in itself every oedipal character of temporality, where light breaks into the finitude of a world already lived.

Alborghetti interprets the “wall of time” well, to refer to the Jungerian work, the space occupied by things that fall, but in this decadence a sort of mysticism is grafted.
Accumulated residues of discontinued works, ragged posters that have exhausted their function, like a human being worn out at the end of his days. And these wrecks draw their life from a new look, from a light that removes them from their inexorable decline.

In this subtraction from decadence, every element lives a providential redemption from chaos, from the useless, and helps to better understand that Life itself is useless, like Art, because Life is eternal Presence.

SIGNS OF OUR TIMES / MACRO PHOTOS OF A DISFIGURED TRAFFIC SIGN #3

These are not modern art paintings or pop art works. They are just macro and abstract photos of details of a disfigured traffic sign… The pictures are part of my “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 120.000 photos taken across the world.
“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project concerning researches about decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban/industrial tokens. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to waste-paper and decomposed matters. Like the pictures above.

ABSTRACT MAPS FROM A METAL PLATE: CLOSE UP PHOTOGRAPHY #3

Even a simple metal plate, seen on a street in the city center, can reveal and hide really surprising shapes and colors, like the images published above, for my research project “Lacer / actions”. In this photo-gallery some of the photographic images that concern some scratches produced and created by time, which  gave birth, over the course of months and years, to this surprising natural palette, which seems to come from the hands of an artist. But instead everything is close-up photography. Nothing but photography.

Anche una semplice lastra di metallo, vista su una strada del centro città, può rivelare e nascondere forme e colori davvero sorprendenti, come le immagini pubblicate qui sopra. In questa foto-galleria alcune delle immagini fotografiche che riguardano alcuni graffi prodotti e creati dalll’usura e dal tempo, che hanno dato vita, nel corso di mesi e di anni, a questa sorprendente tavolozza naturale, che sembra uscita dalle mani di un artista. Ma invece tutto è fotografia a distanza ravvicinata. Null’altro che fotografia.
