The days of the pandemic that the world is experiencing are like a vortex that has dragged us into the abyss of the unknown, darkness and pain. We are all in the vortex. This is the image that many people – even myself – have experienced mentally, but also physically. The emergence of a terrible and unknown virus has left scorched earth around us. Many lives are gone in the silence, in the solitude, in the distance of the affections, even of a hug. We all feel the need to recover strength, energy, images of life. And to return to everyday life, surely changed.

From these thoughts this project “Vorticism: Lockdown” was born. I plunged into the vortex of the colors of the decomposed and corrupt advertising posters, to draw something new, something that opened the wings of hope. A torn and worn-out advertising poster, expired in his message, is the image of these times overwhelmed by the fury of the virus. I’m in love with vorticism: I still remember a great exhibition in London, 10 years ago, at the Tate Gallery. So, I let myself be carried away by the vortex of shapes and colors. I de-structured waste paper strips and re-structured them into 4  works. In this photogallery I present you all the 4 collages.

“Vorticism” is the avant-garde movement which was influenced by the tensions of the early twentieth century, with desires and expectations of renewal. Vorticism, in depicting vortex shapes, wants to express the concept of energy and strength by inserting movement and dynamism into art. A group of “vorticists” was founded by the artist, writer and polemicist, Wyndham Lewis in 1914. Their only group exhibition was held in London the following year. Vorticism was launched by Blast  magazine which contained  two manifestos by Lewis ‘blasting’ what he considered to be the effeteness of British art and culture and proclaiming the vorticist aesthetic: ‘The New Vortex plunges to the heart of the Present, we produce a New Living Abstraction’.

The “Vorticism: Lockdown” series aims to pay homage to the intuitions and sense of an avant-garde movement which, precisely in the lockdown phase for the emergence of the coronavirus, indicates a desire of re-birth, of re-launch and, why not ?, of re-volt of culture, lifestyles, behaviors and values, respecting the person, the human dimension and the natural balance of the planet.

THE STREET IS A FREE ART GALLERY: TORN PUBLICITY POSTERS, SLIDESHOW #3

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Are these modern art paintings? Are these pop art works? Are these acrylic pictorial paintings? No, they are just photos of details of big torn publicity posters on an outdoor advertisings billboard. For me, the street is a real free art gallery, where we can perceive wonderful pieces of art. The pictures above are part of my “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 110.000 photos taken across the world.
“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project concerning researches about decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban/industrial tokens. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to waste-paper and decomposed matters. Like the picture above.

100 DAYS IN THE MEDIEVAL TUSCANY FORTRESS: SCENES FROM “COLORS OF AN APOCALYPSE” SHOW – THE CLIP

***

By Marco Rossi

“Colors of An Apocalypse” – the Roberto Alborghetti exhibition hosted in the ancient and picturesque Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) on Mount Amiata, in Tuscany (PiancastagnaioSiena, Italy) – ends today after 100 days. The show has been exceptionally extended due to the great interest from people and media. 
About 7.000 visitors have taken turns in the rooms of the charming manor, discovering the provocative artistic language of Roberto Alborghetti, professional journalist and writer, who for years has been collecting realistic images about the “decomposition of publicity posters”, as the subtitle of the exhibition tells.
Proposed and promoted by Piancastagnaio Municipality, Osa Onlus and Pro Loco, with the support of the Province of Siena , “Colors of An Apocalypse” has sparked an unexpected interest outside of the usual italian art circle and the current logics which manage the traditional promotion  of artistic expression.
“Colors of an Apocalypse” exhibition displayed forty artworks (canvases,  lithographs, collages and three special limited-edition silk scarves) created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions Project”.  Along the seven rooms, people had the way to know the meaning of an unusual research based on observation and reproduction of the decomposition of publicity posters and urban tokens on city walls. 

Through his works Roberto Alborghetti investigates  the great Babel of ripped and lacerated colors and words in order to grasp the chromatic energy, revitalizing what we usually consider a rejection or a disturbing element (for the eyes and the urban landscape).
