VIDEOCLIP AND PHOTOS ABOUT "THE WEDDING DRESS" BY MITRANI YARDEN

 

This is the videoclip I created about the spectacular wedding dress made by Mitrani Yarden, fashion designer and artist.

 

THE WEDDING DRESS BY MITRANI YARDEN - VIDEOCLIP BY ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

  Three months of work, meters of silk and stretch tulle, 5 different kinds of lace-embroidery (stitched directly on the dress), hundreds of blue an red pearls, 35 covered buttons: these are some numbers behind this wonderful creation.

Through my photos and video I tried to bring my eyes close to the wedding dress, using some macros too, with the aim to show how Yarden Mitrani hand made created this wonderful outfit. So I liked to work on details and particulars, trying to reveal through a close-up the beauty of this wedding dress. The videoclip shows only a little part of the great work by Yarden Mitrani. He really suffered on this dress which also tells the story of an emerging fashion designer who thinks that fashion world need to be renewed and re-found. For the soundtrack, Yarden suggested a great bossanova track by Joao Gilberto: “O nosso amor a felicidade”; composers: Jobim /DeMoraes. I immediately agreed with him!

Born in Tel-Aviv, Mitrani Yarden started his professional way in 2009. In 2010 he won a fashion contest at the Israeli channel 10 “The most expensive dress”. He continued in Paris at ESMOD (luxury and haut couture woman’s fashion) and then he had professional experiences in several French couture fashion houses in Paris such as Julien Fourniè, Chanel and taking parts on big names runway fashion shows for Rick Owens and Vivienne Westwood.

Yarden’s life has been sealed by a dramatic experience. He tells: “I was a soldier in the special forces in paratroopers and I passed the Second Lebanon War. They say that who experienced war know how to take and to give freedom to others. Because it was up to me, I received  blessing and wisdom to use my power to deliver a message to the world through my fashion and art! The goal is simply to make people smile, giving them the courage and strength to fight for what is special about them without hiding themselves behind a ‘community’ or a ‘society’ ”.

"CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS ART IS FROM AN OLD BUS?" THE PRESS RELEASE

 

 

PRESS RELEASE BY MARYSIA ZIPSER - ACT GROUP 

The exciting new “Ghost Bus” visual art project by Roberto Alborghetti – Italian journalist, writer and visual artist – is now touring the world wide web over the next two months attracting many admirers along the way.  This itinerant “modern art gallery” is culminating in a special short films premiere and social gathering on Friday 27 March at 6.30pm at Bartons Plc, Chilwell High Road, Nottingham, to which you are most cordially invited. 

Website and social media viewers are enthralled and mystified by what Roberto has created from the totally natural and realistic photo images he took last October of the 1956 “Ghost Bus” when he toured the huge Bartons garage site housing superb exhibition and special events space as well as a wonderful collection of vintage vehicles.   Can you believe that this art is from an old bus?

See details about Roberto’s October visit on

 https://robertoalborghetti.wordpress.com/2014/10/page/2/

What captured Roberto’s imagination was the story behind the “Ghost Bus” which Simon Barton relayed to him.  The URR 865 AEC Reliance had been slumbering in an open Suffolk field for 20 years, resistant to both scrapping or restoration, before being discovered and brought back to its original fold a few years ago.   

 A vehicle-sister of the “Ghost Bus” had been documented in an incredible 1959 movie in Kodachrome colour of a group of English ladies and gentlemen who toured from Nottingham to the Italian Riviera on a Bartons Road Cruise Holiday, now posted on http://www.bartonsplc.co.uk/index.php/2012-01-23-22-22-17/the-ghost-bus.  

Bartons was once the largest independent bus company in Western Europe and one of the first firms in the world to operate a timetabled bus service.

As shown in the short film, some images (“Maps”) come from the Land Rover vehicle that is  parked next to the old bus.  The vehicles are both distressed in the same manner from decades outside, both the same age, British in manufacture and both have decades long association with Barton family. Both vehicles are still on site.

It was good reason for Roberto to create and build a different road trip of the artistic kind between Italy and the land of Robin Hood.   So he set to work incorporating the “Ghost Bus” for his “Lacer/actions” project concerning realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials.  The project, preceded by 3 trailers and a flyer, consist of two short movies for public performances and video shows, a limited edition special poster (showing 9 images from the films),  a special card series (reproducing 16 artworks selected from the 109 that had been created) and a collection of canvases.

The “Ghost Bus” project synopsis refers:

“There’s an old bus at Bartons garage, in the ancient land of Robin Hood. After thousands of miles, between earth and sky,  it’s taking a rest tired and rusty. But if we look closely, it continues to tell us the colours of its days along the dusty roads of the world...”

The Ghost Bus project is already attracting media and TV attention in Italy and around the world, so hop on board and enjoy the ride!

"THE GHOST BUS": ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI VISUALS IN THE LAND OF ROBIN HOOD

“The Ghost Bus” is coming soon in the Land Of Robin Hood… It's a new art and visual project scheduled in Beeston-Nottingham (UK) for January-February 2015 in collaboration with Bartons Plc and its owner Simon BartonACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) and its founder Marysia Zipser. This story and this collaboration began last October, when I spent some hours in Bartons huge garage of vintage buses and cars.

"THE GHOST BUS": THE OFFICIAL FLYER

 

I was really impressed by one of the oldest buses, the so called “The Ghost Bus”, a piece of history of English public transport: it’s a URR 865 vehicle AEC Reliancemade in 1956! Simon Barton told me that a vehicle-sister of the “ghost bus” was also documented in 1959 on a wonderful and unmissable film telling a beautiful journey through Italy by a group of English ladies and gentlemen. It was another great reason to establish a collaboration building a bridge between the Land of Robin Hood and Italy… So, I began to work and create on the “ghost bus” for my “Lacer/actions” project concerning realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials.

The project – preceded by 3 trailers and a flyer – will consist of two short moviesfor public performances and video shows, a cards series (reproducing 16 artworks selected from the 109 ones that has been created) and a collection ofcanvases.

The movies premiere will take place in February at Bartons Plc in Beeston, Nottingham. Special previews, news and pictures are yet available on the main social networks (Word Press, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Google+). The “Ghost Bus” project synopsis tells: “There’s an old bus at Bartons garage, in the ancient land of Robin Hood. After thousands of miles, it’s taking a rest, tired and rusty. But if we look closely, it continues to tell us the colours of its days along the dusty roads of the world ...”.

ART AND AUTISM: "COLORS AND EMOTIONS" FROM AN EXPERIENCE IN ITALY

 

One of the top 5 videoclips in 2014 at my YouTube channel is "Colors and Emotions: The other side of autism". The clip simply shows images from a workshop with autistic kids who reproduced some of my artworks from"Lacer/actions" Project (about torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban signs). The 2nd edition of this wonderful activity was curated by Patrizia Sapri who carried out as well as (in Anzio-Rome) an interesting exhibition ("Scratches, Cracks and Lacer-actions / Between dream and reality”).The initiative was made possible thanks to Rotary Club of Roma Golfo di Anzio, Nettuno, which has included the experience in "Anzio for Autism" program.

My videoclip wants to tell a sort of journey through "special painterly colors and materials" and the singular experience involving children with disabilities and carriers of the Syndrome of Autism Spectrum. Patrizia Sapri led with passion and enthusiasm the group of the magnificent seven little artists who have re-composed and re-built my works from “Lacer / actions" Project. Kids re-viewed with their creativity images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches and “urban signs”.

Patrizia Sapri, teacher and curator, says about the workshop: “ My job has the aim to start from the healthy part of the person and developing residual capacity. We search for a meaningful relationship between colors and emotions. Limits are transformed into expressive skills, communication, art… Roberto Alborghetti works have the emotional power to establish a right condition to create and to act. Yes, my special students like so much Roberto's colors, scratches and cracks. But don't ask me why...”.

SILK COMET…TEXTILE DESIGN FROM PICTURES OF DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS (LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT)

Silk scarf - Lacer/actions by Roberto Alborghetti 

This is a “Season’s Greetings card” dedicated to the limited-edition of a 3 silk scarves series I created for my "Lacer/actions Art Project”. The images of dirty, torn, and worn paper of the publicity posters on outdoor billboard have become silk scarves too! After to be already transferred on canvases, lithographic prints and aluminium my "Lacer/actions" artworks were transformed in silk textiles designs thanks to collaboration of Bruno Boggia Disegni (Como, Italy) who has been working with the most famous designers and fashion brands in the world (Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana...).

 

Bruno Boggia and his staff helped me to select artworks to be converted into 3 patterns of real exclusive “pieces of art”. The images of that dirty and ripped papers have changed in the elegance, delicacy and sheen of silk textile. The photos reproduced in this gallery are demonstrating it. Images of ripped and dirty outdoor advertisings, left to decompose on the walls or billboards, are now soft silk scarves, ready to be worn. “And they are a perfect gift!”: says Marie DeerHeart, USA (artist, photographer, teacher; she writes from a rich text based in theater, art, and design training).

MY NEW WORK ON A TABLE: COLLAGE MADE WITH 1.258 PIECES OF WASTE-PAPER FROM TORN OUTDOOR ADS

Collage by Roberto Alborghetti, Lacer/actions

 

This is my new work for “Lacer/actions” project. It’s a collage made on a table using 1.258 waste-paper pieces of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings. I gathered every single paper pieces along the streets, after the old publicity posters were torn down from the billboards. I titled it : "The Symptomatology Of Instability (Waves On Waves)". It covers a wood table; sizes: cms 108 x 51. I think images speak better than words… So I created a videoclip I posted on YouTube:

Videoclip: The Symptomatology Of Instability (Waves On Waves)"

 

About “Lacer/Actions” project…

LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches and urban and industrial signs (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 50.000 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; all on board from January 2015...

“AN EXHIBITION, A RESTORATION” IN UMBRIA (ITALY): 416 ARTWORKS ON SHOW INCLUDING “SHOOTING STAR” BY ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

SHOOTING STAR By ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI 

 

Guest Writer: Stephen Alberti

 

On July 12, 2014, the 40th edition of "An exhibition, A restoration" was inaugurated in Norcia (Perugia, Umbria, Italy) with the aim to restore and to preserve the artistic heritage of the famous Umbrian town.

This year, the initiative has the participation of 416 Italian artists who intended to support the work of protection of the altarpiece of the "Coronation of the Virgin" by Jacopo Siculo (1541), which requires a sound-absorbing curtain. The exhibition is displaced in the enchanting monumental and medieval complex of San Francesco until 7 September 2014. The event is sponsored by the "An exhibition, A restoration" Committee, with its president prof. Giuseppe Urso, and by the City Council of Norcia.

Among the works participating in this worthy initiative, there is also a unique piece of Roberto Alborghetti created as part of his project "Lacer / actions". It is a collage made of about 300 small pieces of scrap paper from torn advertising posters and decomposed, which as you know - with cracks, scratches and natural - are the subject of his visual research. The work presented in Norcia is titled "Shooting Star" and measures 53 × 35. Also it is shown in the official Catalogue published for the event which is going to attract keen interest, many art lovers and tourists in the homeland of St. Benedict, patron of Europe,.

The forty years of "An exhibition restoration" began thanks to the initiative of the Committee President, prof. Giuseppe Urso , along with a dozen families (later came to 30) and the support of more than 100 contemporary and successful artists (from Italy and abroad); among them: Manfredi, Castellani, Maccari, Caruso, Greek, Dorazio, Guttridge. Every year they donated artworks for the creation of a show whose proceeds were donated to the restoration of a masterpiece of art..

"Along the years - prof. Giuseppe Urso says - a friendship has been created between us and the artists. Thanks to them we have been restored so far about 30 works. The last one was the sixteenth-Century wooden sculpture of St. Claude and St. Roch from Serravalle di Norcia. Now the focus is on the beautiful "Coronation of the Virgin" painted by Jacopo Siculo in 1541”.

WE ARE ALL MEANT TO SHINE” / NELSON MANDELA WILL ALWAYS BE A PART OF US

Roberto Alborghetti - Lacer/actions

© Roberto Alborghetti - LaceR/Actions

 

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you *not* to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

“THE NEXT APOCALYPSE”: MY COLLAGE WORK FOR “ART TOPPLING TOBACCO” PROJECT

 

THE NEXT APOCALYPSE - COLLAGE MADE WITH WASTE-PAPER FROM DECOMPOSED AND TORN PUBLICITY POSTERS 

"The Next Apocalypse:

no Heaven or Hell, only Smoking or Non-Smoking”;

Collage made with 150 small pieces of waste-paper of torn and decomposed publicity posters;

Sizes: 47x47 cms.; 2013.

This work takes part to "Art Toppling Tobacco"  

http://www.arttopplingtobacco.com.au/

 

Tobacco lacerates (and detroys) our lives. I wanted to express this concept working on lacerated and destroyed waste-paper from torn and decomposed publicity posters I usually find along the streets. So, for my “Lacer/actions” project, I've created this collage using about 150 little paper pieces of worn-out and ripped outdoor advertisings. De-struction (and de-construction) to communicate how those dark and disqueting clouds of smoke intoxicate and ruin body and soul, degenerating cerebral system. I worked on an abstract scene coming from exhausted materials to say that smoke, ash and tar are here with us... The next apocalypse: no heaven or hell, only smoking or non-smoking.

This work has been admitted to "Art Toppling Tobacco" project and competition created in Australia by Fay Thomson (browse the web site  http://www.arttopplingtobacco.com.au/ : Submissions 2013, category "Other" and click to the end).

***

Il fumo lacera e distrugge le nostre vite. Ho voluto esprimere questo concetto lavorando, come mi è solito, sulla carta straccia dei manifesti pubblicitari decomposti visibili lungo le strade. Ho creato questo collage, per il mio progetto “Lacer/azioni”, utilizzando circa 150 pezzetti di carta stracciata. Il linguaggio di un materiale distrutto e de-strutturato per comunicare, in un'immagine astratta, come l'uso del tabacco intossichi corpo ed anima. Fumo, cenere e catrame: la prossima apocalisse...

MY SURPRISE PUBLIC EXHIBITION IN A BEAUTIFUL MEDIEVAL SQUARE WITH THE PARTICIPATION OF 3 HISTORICAL PLACES...

 

 

 

A surprise public exhibition dedicated to my works... It will happen next Sunday, July 14, during an evening event with culinary excellences, good Irish music and a special performance with my "Lacer/actions" artworks, in an ancient and fascinating place: a beautiful square in the historic heart of Ambivere, Bergamo country, not so far from Milan (this place is  documented and quoted in scripts dating back to year 923!)

In a picturesque setting between ancient walls and medieval towers, three Historical Places will present some delicious menus: this is “GustAmbivere”. Master chefs and barmen will represent Antica Osteria dei Cameli (founded in 1856), Trattoria Visconti (founded in 1932) and Caffè del Fiola (founded in 1887). These Historical Places has been highlighted and  recognized in national and international publications, as Michelin Guide (Antica Osteria dei Cameli). A special selection of wines will be served by Azienda Agricola S.Egidio from Fontanella-Sotto il Monte (Bg). Concert by "Fuich Irish Music" band.

I was invited to have a “solo show” focusing on some of my works from “Lacer/actions” Project about torn and decomposed publicity posters and urban tokens. I think these historic square and places, evoking the passage of times, are an ideal space to enhance the contrasting language of colors and shapes of my compositions. This special event – which has a charity purpose, for "Ponte di Stelle" Association  - is promoted by Ambivere Council and the three Historical Places.
