THREE IMAGES FOUND IN THE ARCHIVE: THEY HAVE BEEN TAKEN TEN YEARS AGO

Here are three images from my “Lacer/actions” project-research. They were taken exactly 10 years ago, but I think they retain all their amazing energy. Obviously, these images are not paintings, but photographs. They refer to billboards, which I saw by chance along the roads. Yes, these are not collages built and created deliberately with my hands, joining and sticking piece by piece, but a real, “natural” and completely collage. It’s  the result of various and different overlaps – which took place over weeks and months – of advertising publicity posters with different contents. 

I was lucky enough to catch and store them to my “Lacer/actions” archive which now counts more than 100,000 images  I fixed and collected around the world. I think that these random works, as well as the thousands I have captured and documented so far, would really aroused the envy of Mimmo Rotella and  Jacques Villeglè… These artists worked advertising posters snatching them from the billboards. But I think that a way of artistic expression is instead to document pure reality through photography. And leave the incredible polychromy of torn posters on the walls, transforming the cities streets in public and free outdoor “galleries”…

THE TORN (PUBLI)CITY: SIGNS & CODES LEFT ON A BILLBOARD #3

After the advertisement has been torn and removed from the billboards, traces and marks of ink, glue and residuals of paper can be glimpsed on the surface. In my opinion, this is a sort of open-air exhibition. Our eye can read and admire strange shapes and a sort of codes that only the time and the chance can decipher.

I think all this is a real language. It is the expressive code of the road, which speaks and communicates in an absolutely surprising way. Yes, I am convinced that this is natural and pure street art, built by virtue of a force that is beyond our control. Yes, very suggestive black and white pics. You must be immediately ready to impress these scenes …

Also in this photogallery #3 I have gathered some of the images I took around a big outdoor billboard located in Milan area (Italy), as you may see in this photo.

 The pictures are part of LaceR/Actions”, my 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 (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. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions! © Roberto Alborghetti

Dopo che la pubblicità è stata strappata e tolta dai tabelloni, si possono intravvedere, sulla superficie, tracce e segni di inchiostro, colla e residui di carta. A mio parere, tutto ciò costituisce uno spettacolo unico. Una mostra a cielo aperto. Il nostro occhio può leggere ed ammirare strane forme ed una sorta di codici che solo il caso e il fato possono decifrare. Penso che tutto ciò sia un linguaggio. E’ il codice espressivo della strada, che parla e comunica in un modo assolutamente sorprendente. Sì, sono convinto che questa sia vera e pura arte di strada, costruita in virtù di una forza che sfugge al nostro controllo. Sì, tutto molto suggestivo. Occorre essere subito pronti ad impressionare queste scene, parte del progetto “Lacer/azioni”…

There are some amazing and unusual landscapes on the walls of our cities… They are skies and seas of paper. We can see them in macro photographs of disfigured advertising posters. In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took walking along the streets of different cities, from  outdoor billboards.  The pictures 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 (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.

There are some amazing and original landscapes on the walls of our cities… They are skies and seas of paper we can see in macro photographs of disfigured advertising posters. In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took walking along the streets of diffrent cities. They’re macro and abstract photos of a decomposed publicity poster I saw on outdoor billboards.  The pictures 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 (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…).
