WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY 2020: AN EXPERIENCE OF COLORS AND EMOTIONS

*

This videoclip presents a series of pictures about “a journey through special painterly colors and materials” and the wonderful experience involving children with disabilities and carriers of the Syndrome of Autism Spectrum. It’s nice to remember it, when we celebrate the World Autism Awereness Day 2020 (April 2). 

Patrizia Sapri led with passion and enthusiasm the group of the magnificent seven little artists  who have re-composed and re-built artworks from “Lacer / actions” Project by Roberto Alborghetti. Kids re-viewed with their creativity images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches, urban and industrial matters, as presented in the videoclip.  

Patrizia Sapri, teacher and curator, says about the workshop: “ My job has the aim to start from the healthy part of the person and developing residual capacity. We search for a meaningful relationship between color and emotions. Limits are transformed into expressive skills, communication, art… Roberto Alborghetti artworks have the emotional power to establish a right condition to create and to act. Yes, my special pupils  like so much Roberto’s colors, scratches and cracks. But don’t ask me why…”.

RETROSPECTIVE: ADVERTISING POSTERS ON BILLBOARD AND THEIR PROCESS OF CHANGE (VIDEO, 2010)

“Lacer/actions – Lacer/azioni” was made exactly 10 years ago: in March  2010. I created it through the Animoto platform, accepting the challenge of producing a video clip of thirty seconds of maximum duration. In the video we see some of the macro photographic images I took around advertising posters billboard. I have always been impressed and fascinated by the way in which publicity posters undergo a natural process of changethe atmosphere corrodes them, the wind tears and cuts them, the rain changes them into different colors and finally they are superimposed with other posters.

Yes, they’re not paintings, but “Lacer/actions”!

These are not modern art paintings or pop art works. They are just macro and abstract photos of details of a disfigured wastebin, in Milan… The pictures are part of my “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 120.000 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 pictures above.

These pictures aren’t paintings (oils, acrylics, watercolors or digital works), but just natural, random and not manipulated images of the amazing imperfection of the real world we see around us. They are photos: I took them in Rome on walls, advertising billboards, gates, wastebins… Free abstract and informal art along the streets.

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of decomposed posters, cracks, scratches and urban/street signs. 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, as you may see in this gallery showing some works from the collection of about 120.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

LIKE A GARDEN IN WINTER…: FLUTE NINJA (笛忍者) + 21 MACRO PHOTOS

The relaxing and mysterious music created by Flute Ninja (笛忍者) – composer, artist and musician – meets my “Lacer/Actions” works in a videoclip titled “Falling Snow”. The clip presents an original Flute Ninja (笛忍者) composition accompanied by an image series from my photo collection of torn and decomposed publicity posters. The 21 works have white and green as prevailing colors, suggesting a sort of snow scenes from a winter garden… All the images come from a unique ripped poster that I saw some months ago along a street in Milan (Italy).  

I’m very glad about this collaboration created in distance thanks to the web: Flute Ninja (笛忍者) lives in Alabama (USA), he is composer, poet, shakuahachi player, martial artist (he enjoys drawing and painting nature and landscapes; his inspiration came from Bob Ross). Through  his YouTube channel NinjutsuLives, he spreads his passion for Japanese music and instruments as shakuahachi.

In “Falling Snow” composition (lenght: 3 minutes and 59 seconds). Flute Ninja (笛忍者) plays shinobue, a transverse Japanese bamboo flute which creates ethereal soundscapes. So welcome to this sensorial experience for ears, eyes, heart and mind… An invitation to stop for 4 minutes and go slowly…
