MACRO PHOTOS OF “PAVEMENT CRACKS”…VIDEO-TRIBUTE TO ANNIE LENNOX

 

They’re not paintings. They’re macro photos of pavement cracks by Roberto Alborghetti (from “Lacer/actions” project). “Pavement Cracks” (The Scumfrog Remix) by Annie Lennox. “Where is my comfort zone? A simple place to call my own. ‘Cause everything I want to be. Comes crashing down on me. And it don’t show up in the pavement cracks. I can’t even recognize my tracks. You and I can’t turn the whole thing back. Ooh I wish you well (Love don’t show in the pavement cracks. There will be no turning back)”.

Created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” project and research about torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, industrial matters and urban decomposition.

CANVAS ON A RED WALL: FROM AN ABSTRACT PHOTO TO A COMPLEMENT OF INTERIOR DESIGN

roberto-alborghetti-800x481

“Victims & martyrs. Kefalonia, 1943 – The blood tracks # 1”: abstract photo on canvas + mixed media, 90×57, by Roberto Alborghetti, Lacer/actions. From an image of torn and decomposed publicity posters to an “unmistakable complement of interior design and decoration…”. This is the magic 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. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions!

Yes, there is an abstract world under our feet … These are some of the images I took walking along the streets of Florence (Italy). They’re macro of a cracked pedestrian crossing.
