My next solo exhibition – “Colors Of An Apocalypse 2.0″ – will take place in an amazing Romanesque Baptistery on Lake Como, Italy. My show is scheduled for 3 days, on 3-4-5 July, 2015, in the beautiful Lenno town, in the historical center – 50 meters from the lake shore! – where we admire one of the most stunning examples of Romanesque art in Northen Italy. This is a trailer for my exhibit showing photos about the enchanting St. John Baptistery (XI Century), beautiful setting for my upcoming show.
About “LACER/ACTIONS” PROJECT by ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI
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 55.000 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 most recent shows (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last two years I was 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.
Now I’m working on “The Ghost Bus” project, in collaboration with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015).
My next solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2.0″) will be running on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on 3-4-5 July, 2015, in a special and spectacular setting: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art.
