Kindness is like a silk caress on the mind … This phrase was suggested to me by the images of the silk scarves produced with the image design of my “Lacer / Actions” project. Today is the World Kindness Day: it is celebrated annually on 13th November. On this day, participants attempt to make the world a better place by celebrating and promoting good deeds and pledging acts of kindness, either as individuals or as organisations. World Kindness Day was first launched in 1998 by The World Kindness Movement, an organisation formed at a 1997 Tokyo conference of like-minded kindness organisations from around the world. There are currently over 28 nations involved in The World Kindness Movement.

My upcoming solo exhibition – “Colors Of An Apocalypse 2015″ – will take place in the amazing Romanesque Baptistery on Lake Como, Italy, on July 3-4-5,  in the beautiful Lenno town.

The Baptistery stands 50 meters from the lake shore and it’s considered one of the most stunning examples of Romanesque art in Northen Italy.  Dedicated to St. John (The Baptist) it was built in the 11th Century. Its octagonal structure looks incredibly simple and essential: we see a squared bell tower and an apse pointed to north. The vault, the portal with three archs, fragments of medieval frescos and a baroque pictorial cycle are other interesting elements of the temple.

The octagonal Baptistery and its enchanting structure will give strenght and evocative power to my exhibition which will show 25 works from my “Lacer/actions” project, included 3 silk scarves (limited edition) I created in collaboration with textiles designer Bruno Boggia and his Studio in Como. Each artwork will be introduced by a phrase  from “The Apocalypse of John”. Images and words to suggest a trip through hopes and tragedies of human life and beings.

  • Opening Hours / Friday July 5: h.4-10 pm; Saturday 4 and Sunday 5: 10am-12am; 2,30 pm-10 pm. Venue: St. John Baptistery, Piazza XI Febbraio, Lenno (Comune Tremezzina), Lake  Como
  • Aperture mostra: venerdi 5 Luglio 2015, ore 16-22. Nelle giornate di sabato 4 e domenica 5 luglio: 10-12, 14,30 – 22,00. Il Battistero di San Giovanni si trova in Piazza XI Febbraio.

COLORS OF EARTH AND SKY… LIMITED-EDITION SILK SCARVES: DESIGN FROM DECOMPOSED OUTDOOR ADS

From torn and decomposed publicity posters to silk scarves design… After to be transferred on canvases and lithographic prints, Roberto Alborghetti artworks were chosen to create a series of three textile designs thanks to the collaboration of Bruno Boggia Studio (Como, Italy) who worked with the most famous designers and fashion brands in the world (Capucci,  Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine,  Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana…).

The design is unique: it reproduces details, colors and shapes of images concerning ripped and decomposed paper on oudoor advertisings (Lacer/actions project). Images about ripped  and disfigured posters, left to decompose on walls or billboards, are now on soft silk scarves – pure “crepe de chine” – ready to be worn, as you may see in this photogallery dedicated to one of the three subjects (“Shared moods”).

SILK, STARS AND SCARVES / TEXTILE DESIGNS FROM DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS…

This is a “festive gallery” for the limited-edition series of 3 silk scarves created by Roberto Alborghetti, for his “Lacer/actions Art  Project”

Their design is… unique. They reproduce details of torn posters images and “urban signs” I captured around the world. I accepted the challenge that italian textiles designer Bruno Boggia offered me. Bruno, with the invaluable assistance of his daughter Lucia and his staff, helped me selecting  artworks to be converted into silk scarves designs.

Bruno Boggia Studio works with the most famous designers and fashion brands in the world (Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana…) So, the images of dirty and ripped papers – left to decompose on  city walls or billboards – after being transformed in canvases, lithographs and videoclip, are now artistic and original silk scarves (100 % Crepe de Chine).
