LEGS, CARROTS AND CARDS…THE SURPRISING COLORS AND SHAPES OF TORN PUBLICITY POSTERS #3

AMSTERDAM 09 SC02774 - Copia (800x719)

100.000 PHOTOS FOR “LACER-ACTIONS” PROJECT!

*

This is not a painting! This is a natural (and not manipulated) photo about a big torn publicity poster on an outdoor advertisings billboard. The picture  is part of Roberto Alborghetti’s “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 100.000 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.

THIS IS NOT A COLLAGE BY ROTELLA OR VILLEGLE’, BUT A REAL PUBLICITY BILLBOARD ON THE ROAD…

What you see in this photogallery are not collages built and created deliberately with my hands, joining and sticking piece by piece, but photos of real and random torn publicity posters I saw on a big outdoor billboard, on the road (its sizes: 5,5 meters x 3,5). They are 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 them and to take pictures for my “Lacer/actions” Project and Archive which now counts around 100,000 abstract images I collected so far around the world.

I think that these random pics, 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 the true and genuine art – a sort of evolution of the same street art – consists of leaving the torn and decomposed publicity posters where they are staying: on the billboards. This could be a fascinating and random show which transforms our cities in free outdoor “galleries”…

ABSTRACT ON THE STREETS… THEY’RE PHOTOS OF TORN PUBLICITY POSTERS ON OUTDOOR BILLBOARDS…

What you see in this photogallery are not collages built and created deliberately with my hands, joining and sticking piece by piece, but photos of real and random torn publicity posters I saw on an outdoor billboard. They are 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 them and to take pictures for my “Lacer/actions” Project and Archive which now count more than 90,000 abstract images I collected so far around the world.

ABSTRACT BLUE SKIES… BUT THEY ARE JUST DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS

Some abstract skies… The 5 pictures are macro-photos I took from a decomposed publicity poster I saw on a billboard in Bari (South Italy). They are part of my “Lacer/actions” project-research (I’ve collected so far about 90.000 pics) about natural decomposition and corrosion of publicity postes, industrial and urban matters and of all what people normally consider the “disturbing elements of the environment”. This is not streetart, but art on the street. Natural, normal, absolutely random, without sprays…  

 

 

NATURAL CORROSION IS AN ELEKTRO FLUX… ABSTRACT MACRO-PHOTOS + ÜBER-MAUS SOUNDTRACK

*

Abstract photos (macro-pictures of natural corrosion of varnished cracks and  scratches ) from Bari streets, Italy. They go with a great elektro track by ÜBER-MAUS. Created by ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI for his LACER/ACTIONS project-research about torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial matters. Soundtrack: “The Omega Man 2”, by Über-Maus – http://www.ubermaus.com

SOMEWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE…: THEY AREN’T CREATED BY THE BRUSH OF A PAINTER, BUT SIMPLY BY THE CASE…

 

 

Walking through the STREETS of a city and finding out ( suddenly ) a BILLBOARD on which some decomposed publicity posters BRING your EYES into amazing horizons, visions and incredible UNIVERSES…

Once again, it happened to me. Once again, here are some of the pictures I’ve gathered there, with my camera…

Once again, I was amazed and admired how the REALITY goes beyond every imagination.

All that was not created by the BRUSH of a painter, but simply by the CASE…  

 

ABOUT MY LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT

“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 (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 80.000 images). Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition.

One of my shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last two 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) from July 12 to September 7, 2014.

My recent “The Ghost Bus” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015) with a great short films premiere on March 27, at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. An Italian premiere will take place in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena) on October 24-25. 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.
