LACER/ACTIONS IN GIF / 8 PICTURES FROM THE WORLD AROUND US

lacer-actions gif

“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, like these 8 pictures in gif (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.

“The Next Apocalypse: no Heaven or Hell, only Smoking or Non-Smoking”;

Collage made with 150 small pieces of waste-paper of torn and decomposed publicity posters;

Sizes: 47×47 cms.; 2013.

This work takes part to “Art Toppling Tobacco”  

http://www.arttopplingtobacco.com.au/

 

Tobacco lacerates (and detroys) our lives. I wanted to express this concept working on lacerated and destroyed waste-paper from torn and decomposed publicity posters I usually find along the streets. So, for my “Lacer/actions” project, I’ve created this collage using about 150 little paper pieces of worn-out and ripped outdoor advertisings. De-struction (and de-construction) to communicate how those dark and disqueting clouds of smoke intoxicate and ruin body and soul, degenerating cerebral system. I worked on an abstract scene coming from exhausted materials to say that smoke, ash and tar are here with us… The next apocalypse: no heaven or hell, only smoking or non-smoking.

This work has been admitted to “Art Toppling Tobacco” project and competition created in Australia by Fay Thomson (browse the web site  http://www.arttopplingtobacco.com.au/ : Submissions 2013, category “Other” and click to the end).

Il fumo lacera e distrugge le nostre vite. Ho voluto esprimere questo concetto lavorando, come mi è solito, sulla carta straccia dei manifesti pubblicitari decomposti visibili lungo le strade. Ho creato questo collage, per il mio progetto “Lacer/azioni”, utilizzando circa 150 pezzetti di carta stracciata. Il linguaggio di un materiale distrutto e de-strutturato per comunicare, in un’immagine astratta, come l’uso del tabacco intossichi corpo ed anima. Fumo, cenere e catrame: la prossima apocalisse…

“CONTEMPLATIONS AND LACER/ACTIONS” PROJECT / A SPECIAL PAGE: SLIDESHOW, ALBUM, VIDEO AND A GREAT PORTRAIT (1631)

4

One of the 27 installations-artworks of “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” Project. This is the English translation of the original script by Thomas From Bergamo (1563-1631): “The Loving Soul, wounded in Love, loves in Every Times and Everywhere…” Work and Concept by Roberto Alborghetti – 2013

CONTEMPLATIONS AND LACER/ACTIONS: A SPECIAL PAGE ON THE PROJECT

*

“Contemplations and Lacer/actions” is a visual project which includes a virtual gallery, a video, an album and installations. It is based on 27 scripts by Thomas From Bergamo (or From Olera) who lived from 1563 to 1631 in Tyrol area (Austria and Italy). All the scripts were taken from the most important works of Thomas, as his masterpiece “Fuoco d’Amore”, “Fire of Love” (the first issue was printed in 1682 in Aufsburg, Germany).

Thomas was a peace ambassador and messenger between European Nations in troubled and turbulent times. He was an illiterate man – he was a shepherd! – but its open heart, mind and spirit suggested him to write really stunning poems, stories and thoughts.

While I was writing his biography – (“Thomas From Bergamo: A Fire of Love along European Streets”) published in Italy last June – I was really struck by his Scripts… So, the idea of this project. I think the visionary power of  Thomas Scripts fits so well with my works. As I like to say, my works are not paintings, and even graphic design created by computer, but absolutely realistic images, captured from reality, along the streets, during my research-survey on torn and decomposed publicity posters and about “signs” and “cracks” in urban environments…

Thomas From Bergamo Scripts were written along the streets, contemplating the World and its Beauties… My images comes from the streets as well as… This is the meeting point of this project. The Street, with its Lifes, Hopes, Colors and Moods.

About Thomas: I invite you to admire his great and touching portrait. It was painted in 1631 by artist Martin Theophile Polak (or Martin Teofilowicz). Polak was one the most popular Tyrolese painter between XVI and XVII Century. He also worked at Hapsburg Court. The archduke Leopold sent him to Innsbruck to portray the dying Thomas (May 3, 1631). I think Polak painted one of his masterpieces. He was so able to impress and to imprint on canvas the stately mildness and the inner light of a great man.

CONTEMPLATIONS AND LACER/ACTIONS: A SPECIAL PAGE ON THE PROJECT

MY WORK “C’E’ DEL CAOS MA CON UN PUNTO FOCALE” IN THE CATALOGUE OF THE NEW PERMANENT COLLECTION OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN MARCHE (ITALY)

Guest writer: Nicola Rossi

It’s out the beautiful Catalogue about the new Permanent Collection of Contemporary Art, located in the enchanting undergrounds of Palazzo Gasparini (a XVII Century palace), officially opened in Mercatello sul Metauro, a fascinating medieval and Renaissance town in Marche region (Pesaro Urbino, Italy).

The catalogue features also Roberto Alborghetti work titled “There ‘s some chaos, with a focal point” (canvas, 63 x 43 ), a realistic and not manipulated image “captured” in Milan during a cloudy day on December 2010 for his “Lacer/actions” project concerning images of torn and decomposed publicity posters and urban tokens.

The official Catalogue has been published with the contribution and sponsorship of Banca dell’Adriatico. The book presents all the 158 works displayed in the Permanent Collection rooms and biographies dedicated to all the artists. 

Bonita Clerici and Silvia Cupini – Art Historians at Urbino University – curated the critical texts about the artworks. The new Permanent Collection of Contemporary Art –  Prof. Cuppini writes in the presentation of the Catalogue – is an important initiative that aims to extend Mercatello’s role as a place of art and contemporary feeling.  The initiative was made possible thanks to enthusiasm, passion and tenacity of artist and sculptor Pasquale Martini, who curated the Collection.
