Cracks, Corrosions & Decompositions like Maps to Nowhere… These are abstract photos I recently took walking along the streets of Barletta (Apulia, Italy). They 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. 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.

NATURAL CRACKS AND SCRATCHES IN LONDON… STREETS LIKE A CONTEMPORAY ART GALLERY

© Roberto Alborghetti – Lacer/actions

These abstract photos, I took walking along the streets of London, 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. 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 and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decomposition.

One of shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (2012-2103, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last 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).

“The Ghost Bus/A visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015). I produced two short films which were premiered on March 27, 2015 at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. An Italian premiere took place in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena) on October 24-25, 2015. 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. With fashion designer and artist Mitrani Yarden we have developed ideas for the fashion world, as the Volcano Dress (e-book and short film) and an innovative fabric prints series.

“THERE IS A CRACK IN EVERYTHING, THAT’S HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN”: LEONARD COHEN, R.I.P.

IN MEMORY OF LEONARD COHEN,

GREAT POET, AUTHOR AND ARTIST : R.I.P.

Cracks is part of Roberto Alborghetti’s Lacer/actions project-research about decomposed publicity posters, natural crevices and scratches, urban and industrial matters… This clip is dedicated to the wonderful world of cracks magnifications. The images are not paintings or digitally made works, but abstract photos of the reality. And of the cracks around us… The wonderful quote by Leonard Cohen is the title of one of his great songs.

“IN TUTTO C’E’ UNA CREPA

PERCHE’ LA LUCE POSSA ENTRARE”

Leonard Cohen – R.I.P.

THE WAVES… MACRO PHOTOS OF RIPPED AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS

The waves broke and spread their waters swiftly

over the shore…” (Virginia Woolf, The Waves)

ABSTRACT PICTURES (LACER/ACTIONS) FOR A ROCK BAND: THESE ARE MEMORIES…

The rock has a new look! This is another interesting challenge for Roberto Alborghetti and his visual art (Lacer/actions Project and research). WE DARE rock band goes with Roberto’s artworks for the new video titled “MEMORIES”. All the images of the videoclip are not paintings, but real scenes seen on a big publicity billboard. They were the final result of an incredibile (and amazing) natural decomposition.
WE DARE band likes to play different kinds of rock, from heavy metal to nu metal, from love metal to alternative metal, from alternative rock to gothic rock…and pop rock, neo glam, post grunge and hard & heavy as well. They are an Italian virtual group. They never knew in person, but only through phones, social networks and a lot of emails. The members are: Danio Minici : voice; bass & programming; Andrea “Ralph” Richini : guitars.
