THE TORN (PUBLI)CITY: SIGNS & CODES LEFT ON A BILLBOARD #3

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 sort of open-air exhibition. Our eye can read and admire strange shapes and a sort of codes that only the time and the chance can decipher.

I think all this is a real language. It is the expressive code of the road, which speaks and communicates in an absolutely surprising way. Yes, I am convinced that this is natural and pure street art, built by virtue of a force that is beyond our control. Yes, very suggestive black and white pics. You must be immediately ready to impress these scenes …

Also in this photogallery #3 I have gathered some of the images I took around a big outdoor billboard located in Milan area (Italy), as you may see in this photo.

 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”…

ROME, THE UNIVERSE OF MACRO: CRACKS AND DECOMPOSED MATTERS # 1

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, 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 (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.

I think the universe of cracks is a really wonderful world… We are surrounded by cracks… We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered as a life’s metaphor and “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection.

In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took walking along Rome streets. Yes, in the macro we can see a lot!
