“COLORS OF AN APOCALYPSE”: WORLD PREMIERE ON WEB (APRIL 18, 2020, 3 PM)

“And I saw a new sky and a new earth.” A “short film” of 13 minutes. A singular journey through some passages from the Apocalypse of John, re-read and commented in the light of the images of the “Lacer / actions” project, the colors of the street signs photographed by Roberto Alborghetti. The theme of the video inspired two major exhibitions, at the Rocca Aldobrandesca of Piancastagnaio, Siena in Tucany, and at the Romanesque Baptistery of S. Giovanni in Lenno, Lake Como. The reality that surrounds us as we have never seen it before: that one photographed on the walls of cities, in the cracks and colors of decomposition. The “short film” is unpublished for the Net: it was created in 2015, on the occasion of the Lenno exhibition. It is made freely available to the public now, in April 2020, as a sign of hope for Italy and the whole world, in the wake of the words written by John : «And I saw a new sky and a new earth: the sky and the earth in fact had disappeared from the former land and the sea was gone “(Ap 21,1).

“(We’re) MADE TO BE SEEN”… MY CLIP FOR MITRANI YARDEN FASHION DESIGNER AND ARTIST

*

This is the videoclip I created for Mitrani Yarden, a talented fashion designer and artist. I was inspired by the uniqueness of his creations and by his way to match colors and shapes, and daring to experiment new textiles, materials and solutions. His art comes from the streets, from the cities, from heart and mind. Freedom, harmony and individuality are the 3 words that represent Mitrani Yarden’s way of living.

So, to make this videoclip I began to work around his 3 words and letting me inspire by his great creations (outfits, designs, drawings and sketches). Then I tried to translate the sense and the spirit of his art in these few phrases, as you may see in the clip: “Put an armour on your dreams / Clothe yourself in freedom / No dart will hit you / (we’re) MADE TO BE SEEN”.

For the soundtrack I chose a fragment from a great piece by Audiomachine (“Red Sorrow”)… Please, listen to the epic drums (which seem to wake up the world… and the sleeping consciousness).

Yes, we’re made to be seen: I think this is a basic concept of the human and mutual relationship. In fact, we’re not in-visible. And the in-visibility is the easiest way to fall in the in-humanity… Mitrani Yarden’s design, art and fashion are telling these intriguing suggestions.

Mitrani Yarden says: “My Creations are cosmic and multifaceted. An infinity and multicultural in reality. My point is to meltinpot all the different and rich uniqueness on earth into a modernity, harmony, elegance and soficticated silhouette for offering people to have the ability and the opportunity to achieve clothes that will get a full and perfect harmony with their personality and their character. The ability for having the perfect way to express and communicate themself to everyone in every moments”.

Yes, because (we’re) made to be seen

Yarden styles contain a very big varieties of different details, materials, contrasting elements, contemporary nature, cultures,tradition and modernity, contradiction between the constructed and unconstructed, futuristic,romantique eleganthie, avant-garde and freedom.

A new clip to celebrate 10.000 views at Lacer-azioni YouTube channel. The video presents Srini Pillay’s words from his book “The Science Behind The Law Of Attraction” +  Roberto Alborghetti artpiece from his “Lacer/actions” Project (images of torn posters and urban signs).

 

In his recent workbook “The Science behind the Law of Attraction” Dr. Srini Pillay draws on his experience as a Harvard psychiatrist and brain-imaging researcher. He describes seven scientific laws that explain how “The Law of Attraction” works. Whether the goal is weight loss, a romantic relationship, financial success or happiness, Dr. Pillay explains how we can draw on brain science to make sense of “The Law of Attraction.”

The artwork showed in the clip is: “Talkin’ to My Brain in Positive”, Canvas+Mixed media, 43×70 / Image location: Amsterdam, 2012 / Roberto Alborghetti Lacer/actions – Images Of Torn (publi)City. Soundtrack: Antonio Giraffe, by  Makrosoft.

“THE SPRING WINGS” LACER/ACTIONS SERIES / # 2

© Roberto Alborghetti

I think it’s one of the most astonishing torn posters I ever seen so far during my long research about ripped ads and urban signs. It was located in Lecco, a beautiful town on Como Lake (Italy). The incredible actions and re-actions made by time, weather and environmental conditions (rain, light, smog, humidity…) produced a capturing and harmonious mash-up of colors and shapes. I really had the luck to be in the right time in the right place… (in the following days the billboard was covered with new publicity posters).

The huge and whole torn paper advertising showed me pre-existing images that were crushed and de-structured in thousands of particles which presented fascinating colored streams and waves dancing on a completely white background. The various sections of the torn poster reminded me a sort of suggestion about springtime colors… So, from monday March 26 to next sunday April 1, I’m glad to share a special preview of a seven images series that I titled “The Spring Wings”. The whole series will be followed and concluded by a videoclip in which I’ll show a “live view” of that incredibile billboard. So, enjoy “The Spring Wings Lacer/actions” Series. Seven images to welcome the Springtime…             

ABOUT MY “LACER/ACTIONS ART PROJECT”

LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban signs and landscapes, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped papers from billboards and advertisings diplays. I have so far collected more than 35.000 images. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in a video clip, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations. I think in the lacerated advertisings is recognizable the “unwrapped” city, self-destroying in the messages, self-regenerating and self-reproducing in new visual elements, often contradictory, dissonant, discordant, but still surprisingly vital. 

Some “Lacer/Actions” artworks were published in a booklet-portfolio: Pics of torn (publi)city”.  In July 2010, thirty thousand people visited my show “The Four Elements of LaceR/Actions” during the three days exhibition at Oriocenter (Milano Bergamo Orio Airport, Italy).Myartworks are also taking part of experiences about sensorial and emotional perceptions (sinestesys) concerning kinesiologic tests. In October 2010 I participated to “Parallax AF” in London (La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade). One of my artwork will be kept at the new Contemporary Art Museum will open next September in Marche region (Italy). The next big Lacer/actions Show will take place in the enchanting XIII Century Rocca Aldobrandesca, an incredibile fortress in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from September 27 to November 4, 2012. An “The End of The World” event…
