THE STREET IS A FREE ART GALLERY: TORN PUBLICITY POSTERS, SLIDESHOW #3

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Are these modern art paintings? Are these pop art works? Are these acrylic pictorial paintings? No, they are just photos of details of big torn publicity posters on an outdoor advertisings billboard. For me, the street is a real free art gallery, where we can perceive wonderful pieces of art. The pictures above are part of my “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 110.000 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 picture above.

THE GHOST BUS IS BACK IN THE LAND OF ROBIN HOOD!

GUEST WRITER: MARYSIA ZIPSER – FOUNDER OF ACT GROUP

A visual arts creation by Roberto Alborghetti developed from his “Lacer/actions” project, which concerns realistic images (macro photography not manipulated) of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials.

Roberto says, “While touring Bartons garage in Chilwell, Nottingham (in October 2014) I chanced upon classic vehicles including ‘The Ghost Bus’, a 1956 URR 865 Reliance, which had spent 20 years slumbering in an open field in Suffolk.”

The Ghost Bus ‘Roads’ Project consists of two 14 minute films for public performance; “The Ghost Bus” and “Land Rover Mapping”.  Each has a short film trailer which can be viewed “Can you believe that this art is from an old bus?” and “Can you believe that this art from an old Land Rover?”  In addition he has produced 4 related short videos of macro images taken around Beeston and on Nottingham’s streets: Ghost Bus Seaside Town with music by Simon, Richard, James and Tom Barton Colours of Nottingham Streets to “Can I think of Love” a song by Jeanie Barton Images of Beeston Streets ‘like blossom’ accompanied by “Soon” a song by Jeanie Barton Beeston Rylands – a short film along the Canalside

These are available to view together on a YouTube playlist   http://www.artculturetourism.co.uk/blog/land-rover-mapping-electronic-press-kit-epk

The Ghost Bus Project exhibits the power of combining visual and musical arts; the wonder of family history (the Barton family firm was for a time the largest independent bus operator in the world) and the beauty of what human beings can do through creativity and mutual cooperation.  It encourages us to take the time to look more closely at our surroundings and discover the stories our environment can tell us.

This visual arts film project is now touring! Next stop: in Beeston and Nottingham again, at the beginning of June 2019 (5-8). Let’s get on The Ghost Bus!

Even a simple metal plate, seen on a street in the city center, can reveal and hide really surprising shapes and colors, like the images published above, for my research project “Lacer / actions”. In this photo-gallery some of the photographic images that concern some scratches produced and created by time, which  gave birth, over the course of months and years, to this surprising natural palette, which seems to come from the hands of an artist. But instead everything is close-up photography. Nothing but photography.

Anche una semplice lastra di metallo, vista su una strada del centro città, può rivelare e nascondere forme e colori davvero sorprendenti, come le immagini pubblicate qui sopra. In questa foto-galleria alcune delle immagini fotografiche che riguardano alcuni graffi prodotti e creati dalll’usura e dal tempo, che hanno dato vita, nel corso di mesi e di anni, a questa sorprendente tavolozza naturale, che sembra uscita dalle mani di un artista. Ma invece tutto è fotografia a distanza ravvicinata. Null’altro che fotografia.

SCRATCHES AND GRAFFITI ON BLUE: NOTHING BUT PHOTOGRAPHY #2

The city walls, in this case Milan, always reserve great surprises for my research project “Lacer / actions”. In this photo-gallery some of the photographic images that concern some scratches produced and created by wear and time. The wall had a blue base. And so the blue has given birth, over the course of months and years, to this surprising natural palette, which seems to come from the hands of an artist. But instead everything is close-up photography. Nothing but photography.

I muri delle città, in questo caso Milano, riservano sempre grandi sorprese per il mio progetto-ricerca “Lacer/actions”. In questa foto-galleria alcune delle immagini fotografiche che riguardano alcuni graffi prodotti e creati dalll’usura e dal tempo. La parete aveva una base di colore blu. E così il blu ha dato vita, nel corso di mesi e di anni, a questa sorprendente tavolozza naturale, che sembra uscita dalle mani di un artista. Ma invece tutto è fotografia a distanza ravvicinata. Null’altro che fotografia.

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”…
