STREAMS OF COLORS AND SHATTERED WAVES… (IMAGES FROM A DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTER)

© Roberto Alborghetti – LaceRActions (3)

This photo-gallery is dedicated to eleven abstract images coming from one of the most interesting decomposed and torn publicity posters I ever seen during my long research about ripped ads, cracks, scratches and urban signs ( I posted a clip last week). It was located in Lecco, a beautiful town on Como Lake (Italy). The natural actions (and re-actions) made by time, weather and environmental conditions (rain, sun, dust, smog, humidity) produced a capturing and harmonious mash-up of colors and shapes. I really had the luck to be in the right time in the right place… (in the following days the billboard was covered with new publicity posters). The whole torn outdoor advertising showed me pre-existing images that were crushed and de-structured in thousands of particleswhich presented fascinating colored streams and waves dancing on a completely white background. You may see “live” the torn publicity poster on this clip:

This clip shows seven artworks coming from one of the most interesting torn publicity posters that Roberto Alborghetti saw during his “Lacer/actions” research about ripped ads and urban signs.

That huge outdoor advertising was located in Lecco, Como Lake (Italy). The incredible actions and re-actions made by time, weather and environmental conditions (rain, light, smog, humidity…) produced some of the images you may admire in the clip.

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). Since 2009 I’ve been also workin’ on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. So, I entered the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection. My eyes and cameras discovered, in cracks magnifications, another astonishing textures in what we usually consider waste materials. Also my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this picture. More Cracks in this special gallery…

Milan is an amazing city also for my Lacer/actions project concerning the decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and urban signs… Some weeks ago, while I was walking in the Naviglio area, I was captured by stunning colored palettes… Yes, it was a sort of an “open air” collection, with incredible colors and textures flowing from the walls along the public streets. A variety of abstracts located in the centre of Milan, under the eyes of passers-by… So, enjoy some images…

WARNING: THESE AREN’T PAINTINGS,

THEY ARE “LACER/ACTIONS”

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of decomposed posters, cracks and urban/street signs. 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, as you may see in this gallery showing nine works from the collection of about 50.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

The most recent Roberto Alborghetti Show (“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) from October 6, 2012, to January 15, 2013.

A surprise public exhibition, for one night only (“Lacer/actions Show”) took place on July 14, 2013, for a special event with Historical Place in a beautiful and ancient square (Palace of Countess, Ambivere, Bergamo, Milan area, Italy). His recent projects: “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts 1563-1631) and “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids ).

CRACKS AS MIMOSAS… / ABSTRACT SERIES TO CELEBRATE MARCH 8, THE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

© ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI, CRACKS, LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT

***

These abstract yellow and green scenes – I took them from a rusty iron gate… – remind the colors of Mimosas, the flower which is the symbol in Italy of March 8.  

The International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8th March. In Italy it is traditional on this day to give yellow Mimosa flowers to women as a sign of respect and solidarity. Women give Mimosa to each other as well. Mimosa (Acacia Dealbata) was introduced to Europe from Australia in 1820. It is probably the first tree to flower – as early as January – and its yellow flowers cheer up the winter landscape.

The International Women’s Day began in 1908 to commemorate the 129 women who died in a fire in a factory in Chicago in that year, and also commemorates two other international events: a strike by women garment workers on March 8, 1857 in New York, which led to the foundation of the first women’s union in the US, and a strike by Russian women on the same day in 1917. In 1945 the Union of Italian Women declared that this special date, March 8, should be set aside to celebrate womanhood across the country.

Eleven works from my “Lacer/actions” project went on…aluminium. After being re-produced on canvases, lithographic prints and textiles (silk and cotton), my images about decomposed publicity posters, cracks and “road signs” have found a new way to be showned and represented.

Maybe due to a surprising chemical reaction, aluminium metal gives brilliancy, depth and strenght to colors and shapes, releasing chromatic effects and emphasizing textures. All the eleven installations are now part of private collection of Fai in Italy, who participated to this “experimentation” curated and produced by “Passepartout” (Bergamo, Italy). So, enjoy this special gallery about “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” “as an unmistakable complement of interior design and decoration…”

NEW VIDEOCLIP: JOURNEY FROM THE CENTER OF A BLACK AND YELLOW CRACK…

***

“Journey From The Center Of A Crack” is a new videoclip made for Lacer/actions Project. The random picture comes from a wall in Amsterdam city center (2013).  

*

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of decomposed posters, cracks and urban/street signs. 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, as you may see in this video showing one artwork from the collection of about 50.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.
The most recent Roberto Alborghetti Show (“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) from October 6, 2012, to January 15, 2013.
A surprise public exhibition, for one night only (“Lacer/actions Show”) took place on July 14, 2013, for a special event with Historical Place in a beautiful and ancient square (Palace of Countess, Ambivere, Bergamo, Milan area, Italy). His recent projects:  “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts, 1563-1631) and “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids).
