CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS ART IS FROM AN AGRICULTURAL MACHINE?

Fifteen abstract photos from “Lacer/actions” project by Roberto Alborghetti tell us the colors of Bovino, on the Dauni Mountains (Apulia), one of the most beautiful villages of Italy. Abstraction tells the landscapes and the amazing yellow of the brooms on the hills… All the images are macro-shooting of an agricultural machine seen at Salecchia Farm! They are not paintings! Video made for the Educationaltour 2017 promoted by Regione Puglia, Comune and Pro Loco in Bovino. Celebrating 100.000 photos for Lacer/actions project.

E il Giallo delle ginestre… Le immagini sono macro-riprese di una macchina agricola presso la fattoria Salecchia! Non sono dipinti o manipolazioni in photoshop.

MAGNIFICATIONS OF SCRATCHES… ANOTHER IN-CREDIBLE DIMENSION OF THE WORLD AROUND US

These “scratches” (abstract photos) are part of “LaceR/Actions”, 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. 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 and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decomposition.

One of shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (2012-2103, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last years I worked on these projects:  “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts, 1563-1631), “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids), “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” (11 installations for Fai Private Collection, Italy). My works are part of Contemporary Art Collection (Mercatello sul Metauro, Marche, Italy) and participating to “An Exhibition, a Restoration” in Norcia (Umbria, Italy).

“The Ghost Bus/A visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015). I produced two short films which were premiered on March 27, 2015 at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. An Italian premiere took place in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena) on October 24-25, 2015. 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. With fashion designer and artist Mitrani Yarden we have developed ideas for the fashion world, as the Volcano Dress (e-book and short film) and an innovative fabric prints series.
