NEW MEMORIES 2016: WE DARE ROCK BAND + MY ABSTRACT PHOTOS OF DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY

*

This is a new version of “Memories”videoclip with WeDare song and my visual art (Lacer/actions Project and research). WE DARE rock band choose my artworks for their new video titled “MEMORIES”. And when I heard it I thought to one of my abstract photos series. All the images of the videoclip are not paintings, but real scenes I saw on a big publicity billboard. They were the final result of an incredibile (and amazing) natural decomposition which opened my view on colourful horizons, visions and universes… All that was not created by the brush of a painter, but simply by the case… 

I think my artwoks go very well with “Memories” track composed and performed by WE DARE.

 ABOUT MY LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT

“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 80.000 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.

My recent “The Ghost Bus” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015) with a great short films premiere on March 27, at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. An Italian premiere will take place in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena) on October 24-25. My most recent solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2015”) was on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on  July3-4-5, 2015, in a special and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art. Mitrani Yarden (fashion designer and artist) and me we have created “Hopes” project, a new experience in art, fashion, design and music.

MEMORIES : THE LYRICS

(Andrea “Ralph” Richini, Danio Minici, Roberto Porpora)

 

Time change our lives

Our own fate has took its flight

I need to stop somewhere,

I’m too tired to roam

Reasons beyond these lies

 

Don’t follow me please

do not cross the line

my eyes want to see the whole color of light

but all inside my mind.

 

 

Dreaming is not to stay (I cannot feel pain, you cannot run away)

Can’t lose a single day (it tries to drown me, but drowns before me)

I need to find my way (I cannot feel pain, I cannot feel pain)

All these are memories.

 

So I couldn’t change my life

regret hurts me like a knife 

I struggled and fought to get outside this world

but still I was pulled inside

 

Don’t follow me please

it’s all in my mind

my ached heart still need an injection of life

it’s not my time to die

  

Dreaming is not to stay (I cannot feel pain, you cannot run away)

Can’t lose a single day (it tries to drown me, but drowns before me) 

I need to find my way (I cannot feel pain, I cannot feel pain)

 

You know what, in the end

I find a safe place

but still I crawl, I reel

in all these memories

which never leave me free.

 

I tried to escape myself

from all these miseries

but still the weight of being

will not deny my past,

it’s still inside of me.

 

The light is coming out

the time has come, I’m sure.

But maybe I said this too many times…

 Dreaming is not to stay (I cannot feel pain, you cannot run away)

Can’t lose a single day (it tries to drown me, but drowns before me)

I need to find my way (I cannot feel pain, I cannot feel pain)

BY CHRISTOPHER FROST

The City Daily Photo theme for January is ‘your best photo of the year’. So for my entry I’m going with this one that I took on 27th March.

It’s probably not the best photo that I’ve taken during 2015, but it’s one that has the most relevance for me for a number of reasons.

This is Barton’s ‘Ghost Bus’. An old rusted and decayed coach that was built in the 1950s and has spent the last 20 odd years in a farmers field. Only to be rescued and brought back to their garage in Chilwell.

I saw an advert for an event at Barton’s that was featuring the bus, so I went along, as I had seen it before. But in the daytime, and wondered what it would look like in the dark. The event included a screening of a short film that had been created by Italian visual artist Roberto Alborghetti, and based on close up photos that Roberto had taken of the Ghost Bus.

After the show, I got to interview Roberto for the Beestonian magazine that I write for. In fact someone else was meant to be covering the event, but couldn’t make it, so I did it instead. Serendipity I think they call it. Roberto was pleased with the article and I have been his friend ever since. I also made friends with Marysia, the organiser of the event.

To cut a long story short, this friendship resulted in Gail & I going to Tuscany in October with Marysia, her son and four other travelling companions. Besides seeing different parts of Italy, one of the aims was to get Tuscany twinned with Beeston. To help this along we met two mayors and Marysia presented them with a ‘Beeston goody bag’ which contained a copy of the Beestonian, a locally produced lace shawl, some postcard and a scale model of the Ghost Bus itself.

I’m not sure if any progress has been made with the twinning, but Gail and I both agree that we loved seeing Tuscany and plan to make many more visits to Italy.
