ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI - LACER/ACTIONS
"ESCAPE FROM A DEFINABLE SPACE"...

 

ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI 'S LACER/ACTIONS ART, "ESCAPE FROM A DEFINABLE SPACE", CANVAS + MIXED MEDIA, 80X50, 2011

 

Hundreds of drops, black-white-grey colors, an absolutely random image, as the other 35.000 I took during my research about what I like to call “The Torn (publi)City” (ripped posters and urban signs). This is one of my last 2011 artworks. I had the luck to catch it in Milan. It's one of a series of 5. You never imagine where I took it from! Someone could define it as an expression of dripping techniques. Someone (again) could tell me that it is so similar to some Jackson Pollock paintings...

I only say that the image is absolutely natural and spontaneous, a realistic shot, caught in Milan by my eyes and camera... One day we should explain how reality – I mean: what we have under our eyes - has affected and ispired contemporary art. Meanwhile, this is just another of my “lacer/actions”. And I love people when they play to recognize in what I do some great artist's hand...

“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 that 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).

STEPPIN' ON “LACER/ACTIONS” : A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE TO SEE A CANVAS

A Roberto Alborghetti artwork as never has been seen before... The videoclip shows a “Lacer/actions” out-of-view. Or better: an image caught under a different perspective. Roberto Alborghetti brings his eyes – and camera eye – inside one of his pictures of torn posters and urban signs. It's surely a different way to watch "And a big fire storm poured on earth..." (Canvas, 93x62, 2010). Capturing soundtrack: it's Kyrie (live version) composed by Lorenzo Perosi.

MY SEASON'S GREETINGS IN AN "HAIGA"

 

ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI'S LACER/ACTIONS / HAIGA

Dark night

Snowflakes and frost

Before the New Day

 

Notte scura

Fiocchi di neve e gelo

Prima del Giorno Nuovo

 

This Season's Greetings card fuses, in an “Haiga”, words (“Haiku”) and visual art. The image (lithograph, 50x70) is part of “Lacer/actions” collection, concerning my research about torn posters and urban signs. I thank my “haiga” teacher: poet, musician and producer Joshua Sellers, from West Memphis (Arkansas, Usa).

Questo cartoncino augurale fonde - in quello che la cultura nipponica definisce “Haiga” - parole (“Haiku”) ed arte visuale. L'immagine (litografia, 50x70) fa parte della mia raccolta “Lacer/azioni”, relativa alla ricerca dei particolari dei manifesti pubblicitari lacerati e dei “segni” urbani. Ringrazio il mio “maestro di haiga”, il poeta, musicista e produttore Joshua Sellers, di West Memphis (Arkansas, Usa).

ABOUT HAIGA

Haiga is a style of Japanese painting based on the aesthetics of haikai, from which haiku poetry derives, which often accompanied such poems in a single piece. Like the poetic forms it accompanied, haiga was based on simple, yet often profound, observations of the everyday world. Stephen Addiss points out that "since they are both created with the same brush and ink, adding an image to a haiku poem was... a natural activity."

Just as haiku often internally juxtapose two images, haiga may also contain a juxtaposition between the haiku itself and the art work. The art work does not necessarily directly represent the images presented in the haiku. Stylistically, haiga vary widely based on the preferences and training of the individual painter, but generally show influences of formal Kanō school painting, minimalist Zen painting, and Ōtsu-e, while sharing much of the aesthetic attitudes of the nanga tradition. Some were reproduced as woodblock prints. The subjects painted likewise vary widely, but are generally elements mentioned in the calligraphy, or poetic images which add meaning or depth to that expressed by the poem.

“MODA E TENDENZE” WRITES ABOUT SILK SCARVES CREATED BY ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI FROM TORN POSTERS IMAGES

MODA E TENDENZE REVIEW 

MODA e TENDENZE” ("Fashion and Trends") – review published by L'Eco di Bergamo newspaper - in December 2011 issue, out on in these days, pays attention to Roberto Alborghetti's Lacer /actions" project, focusing on silk scarves made with images of torn posters torn and urban signs. "Fashion and Trends" - which is curated by Fabiana Tinaglia – writes: " The torn, dirty and worn paper of ripped posters sticked on the walls of our cities is now also become a fashion accessory and, specifically, silk scarves... After to be transferred on canvas and lithographs, "Lacer / actions" artworks by Roberto Alborghetti are now silk textiles, thanks to collaboration of Bruno Boggia, the Italian textiles designer who has been working with the most famous fashion houses in the world, as Valentino, Chanel, Dior, YSL.”

"Lacer / actions" - “Moda e Tendenze” writes - is a project created by Roberto Alborghetti, professional journalist, author of essays and biographies, photographer. For years he has been "catching" around the world the details of the apparent chaos of torn posters on billboards or on city walls. So far he has collected approximately more than 30.000 images, taking on new forms of artistic expression now adopted by fashion. "

SU “MODA E TENDENZE”: LE SCIARPE DI SETA CREATE DA ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI CON LE IMMAGINI DELLA PUBBLICITA' STRAPPATA

Moda e Tendenze”, magazine de “L'Eco di Bergamo”, nel numero di dicembre 2011, in questi giorni nelle edicole, dedica attenzione al progetto “Lacer/azioni” di Roberto Alborghetti, focalizzando l'interesse sulle sciarpe di seta realizzate con le imagini dei manifesti pubblicitari strappati. “Moda e Tendenze” - che è curato da Fabiana Tinaglia – così scrive tra l'altro:La carta sporca, strappata, lacerata ed usurata della pubblicità affissa sui muri delle nostre città è ora diventata anche accessorio moda e, nello specifico, sciarpe in seta... Dopo essere diventati tele e litografie, e pure videoclips, gli artworks “Lacer/azioni” di Roberto Alborghetti si sono trasformati anche in seta grazie alla collaborazione di Bruno Boggia che da oltre sessant’anni lavora con i tessuti e collabora con le maison più famose del mondo, da Valentino a Chanel, da Dior a Ysl. “Lacer/azioni” è un progetto di Roberto Alborghetti, giornalista professionista, autore di saggi e biografie, fotografo. Da anni ha l’hobby di “catturare” in giro per il mondo particolari e dettagli dell’apparente caos della carta lacerata delle affissioni. Finora ha raccolto circa 30 mila immagini che, trasferite su tela e su tessuto, riprodotte su litografia o scansionate in un videoclip, assumono nuove forme espressive. E di moda”.

3 SILK SCARVES CREATED WITH TORN POSTERS IMAGES / SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION

 

A series of three silk scarves. I've created them workin' on my images of torn posters details (“Lacer/actions”). I accepted the challenge that italian textiles designer Bruno Boggia offered me when I visited his Studio in Como (Italy). Bruno, with the invaluable assistance of his daughter Lucia and with the support of his staff, helped me selecting artworks to be converted into silk scarves designs. Bruno Boggia Studio 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...)

Within a few days, the challenge reached the finish line. The images of dirty and ripped papers - left to decompose on city walls or billboards – after being transformed in canvas, litographs and videoclip, have now changed in the elegance, delicacy and sheen of silk scarves. Here some photographs about the three Silk Scarves series created for a Special Limited Edition for my “Lacer/actions” project.

SPECIALE EDIZIONE LIMITATA: LA SERIE DI 3 SCIARPE DI SETA CREATE CON LE IMMAGINI DELLA PUBBLICITA STRAPPATA

Una serie di tre sciarpe di seta. Le ho create lavorando sulle mie “Lacer/azioni”: immagini dei particolari dei manifesti pubblicitari stracciati. Ho così accettato la sfida che mi aveva proposto Bruno Boggia, il noto textiles designer di Como. Bruno Boggia, con la preziosa assistenza della figlia Lucia e con il supporto delle sue collaboratrici, mi ha aiutato nella scelta di alcuni artworks da trasformare in sciarpe di seta. Bruno (www.boggiadisegni.it) da oltre sessant'anni lavora sul textiles design producendo per i più conosciuti stilisti a livello mondiale (qualche nome: Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana...) Nel giro di pochi giorni, l'impresa è giunta al traguardo. Le mie immagini sui dettagli della carta – sporca, strappata, lacerata ed usurata – della pubblicità affissa sui muri delle nostre città è ora diventata anche sciarpe di seta. Dopo essere diventate tele, litografie e videoclips, i miei artworks “Lacer/azioni” si sono trasformati nella delicatezza e nell'eleganza di sciarpe di seta. Ecco alcune fotografie della serie di tre sciarpe realizzate in Speciale Edizione Limitata per il mio progetto “Lacer/azioni”.

NO CLOUDS: POETIC VERSES BY JOSHUA SELLERS + ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI 'S TORN POSTERS IMAGE

  Joshua Sellers words fused in Roberto Alborghetti's Lacer/actions artworks: this is an HAIGA

No clouds

the wind revealed

Nessuna nuvola

No clouds” is another result of my collaboration with musician, producer and poet Joshua Sellers, from West Memphis (Arkansas, USA). We had previously collaborated on a music video, for “Linger.” Now, in a different kind of collaboration, fusing Joshua 's words this time with my images - realistic pics of torn posters and urban signs - , we have presented a series of haiga: a combination of haiku and visual art. Here is the fourth of a series we have created so far. Poetry and my “Lacer/actions” artworks for a fascinating trip through imagination and states of mind... I took this image from a billboard's ripped poster. Maybe unbelievable, but it's true. ( 4 )

L'ECO DI BERGAMO NEWSPAPER DEDICATES 2 FULL PAGES TO ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI' S LACER/ACTIONS ARTS.

 

I know: you aren't dedicated two pages in a newspaper every day... Especially when they refer to art and culture. However, this happened to me. L'Eco di Bergamo - the most popular local newspaper in Italy – wrote about my “Lacer/actions” artworks dedicating me two full pages.

The article is signed by Diego Colombo, who has interviewed me and has brilliantly reported and described the aspects of my art. In my WordPress pages I'm re-proposing some passages of the long and detailed article, thanking Diego Colombo and L'Eco di Bergamo for the attention they gave me. The entire article can be read on L'Eco di Bergamo, on October 26, 2011.

ABOUT JOSHUA SELLERS

Joshua Sellers has attended the University of Louisiana at Monroe studying music composition.  Over the years, Joshua has worked as a performer, songwriter, producer, engineer, DJ and musical collaborator in classical, rock, folk, jazz, avant-garde, electronica and ambient music.  As a member of the pop-rock duo Joker, Joshua released the album Homecoming in 2009.

In addition to musical projects, Joshua Sellers has been given an arts grant by the state of Louisiana for a poetry reading at the Masur Museum of Art (1996).  Joshua has also been a co-editor of Hart Beats, a journal of philosophy and spirituality published in Monroe (1996-1998).
Joshua has long been fascinated with the sound textures.  As a child, he would play with tape recorders, altering the tape speed or running the tape in reverse.  Joshua Sellers: “I discovered that you could use a recording device not simply to document sound, but to create unique sounds never heard before.”


Reviving his interest in these childhood experiments, Joshua first began recording ambient music under the pseudonym Murmur in 2003.  Rather than rely on the latest state-of-the-art synthesisers, Joshua uses found sounds, toy keyboards, electric guitars and shakuhachi as sound sources. 
Joshua Sellers: “In music, we place traditional musical elements like rhythm, melody and harmony in the foreground and so we tend to not notice the actual texture as much.  In my music, that’s a perception I want to reverse.”
In 2010, Joshua Sellers completed his first full-length album of ambient music, Amniosis.  A new EP, State of Flux, is due to be released later in 2011, followed by a large-scale work, Elemental. Joshua Sellers: “I like to think of my pieces as enigmatic abstract icons, each providing a quiet meditative space and luminous presence of its own.”

Joshua Sellers currently lives in West Memphis, Arkansas, with future plans to emigrate to New Zealand.

A SRINI PILLAY thought - from his book "LIFE UNLOCKED" - and two ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI' Lacer/actions artworks. They are all mixed up in a clip, posted at YouTube, BlipTV, Facebook and Linkedin.

Thirtytwo seconds for a relaxing break, inspired by Dr. Pillay, Psychiatrist, Harvard clinician, brain-imaging researcher, speaker, executive coach, “The Huffington Post” columnist and author (“Life Unlocked”; "La Calma in Tasca" - italian edition -  , “Your Brain and Business: The Neuroscience of the Great Leaders”, “Tle Science behind The Law of Attraction”).

In the clip you may read this Srini Pillay phrase : “Our choices are beyond our immediate control. To unlock the invisible cage of fear, the uncoscious, we have to first see it.” Soundtrack: “Coquetry” by McKenzie Stubbert.

PARALLAX AF LONDON: TELLING LIFE THROUGH ART

 

I was there showing my “LACER/ACTIONS” project. I met fellow artists and I had the way to know something about their art. Here are some stories...

By ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

I may say that art world met at Parallax AF in London (La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall, October 13-16, 2011). I was there, showing my “LACER/ACTIONS” project (images from torn posters and city walls). With me, almost 200 artist coming from Australia, Japan, Italy, Israel, Chile, Canada, Denmark, Georgia, France, Germany, India, Finland, Czech Republic, Greece, Poland, UK, USA, Sudan, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Sicily, UAE (Dubai), Lebanon, Netherlands, Belgium. It was a great opportunity to share experiences and ideas. And to plan the future... I met fellow artists and I had the way to approach different expressions of their art. And to know something more about their life. Here are some stories...

roberto alborghetti 's lacer/actions at parallax af london 2011

The first artist I had the pleasure to meet at Parallax AF was MIIKA NYYSSÖNEN from Helsinki, Finland. We hanged artworks at the wall at the same time, in the afternoon. Miika brought to London three works, three delicious paintings-mosaics. But those artworks were only a little part of his huge artistic activity.

Miika is an installation artist. As he showed me through his tablet, his works are often hybrids of several ways to do art, in his recent works he's been interested in combining visual decisions made by computer programs to the handwork and painting done by himself. Nyyssönen often builds the situation or the structure which determines what his work's appearance will be.

Miika Nyyssonen used cardboard as the main component in his interactive Olin Hall Gallery installation ‘M the Machine’. 700 cardboard boxes were cut according to ten different models, each surface containing between one and ten square holes that provide partial views of other interior spaces and of three sets of home movies from three decades as the viewer moves within the work, simulating the workings of memory. He has his own page on ArtSlant.com network. As me.

Just in front of me, AMY MCDONALD exhibited her beautiful artwork communicating poetry and smooth emotions. She loves doing screenprint using graphite, ink drawing, pencil drawing, collage. The effects are really awsome. Amy has recently Graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Northampton, specialising in Printmaking and Drawing. In her works, she is particularly interested in the way in which imagery can be manipulated and represented in an abstract form as an artistic expression. Her recent Exhibitions included Free Range (London - July 2011) and University of Northampton degree show (June 2011). She says: “My artwork is about imaging my world around me. The styles vary, depending on the landscapes and influences I experience.”

Other my “wall neighbour” was NICHOLA DOHERTY, who showed at Parallax her brilliant works. She started out painting the Australian landscape, focusing on the outback, and the work was quite abstract. As her art evolved and she moved into the more urban influence of Paris, her work became more realistic. However, it remains stylised and focused on capturing the essence of Paris rather than a photo realistic portrayal. This style remained when she moved back to Australia and once more began painting country landscapes and also again when she returned to France and Paris. Nichola is currently drawing on inspiration from his life in France and also a recent trip to the Scottish Highlands. She says: “I am continuing to explore the essence of the landscape and world around me and to draw on my personal experiences in different landscapes and countries.”

I knew another Australian artist: DEBORAH ALEXANDER. Behind her art there is the inner world of a woman who really suffered in the first years of the life. She wrote about herself: “My father had no concept of family and my mother very few boundaries... home life was often unsetting and disturbing”. Deborah found in art a new life, a new reason to hope. She has engaged in painting most of her life, but it wasn't until she was in her forties and her children old enough that she managed to study Fine Art to Honours Degree Level at Suffolk College (2005) and MA Fine Art at Norwich School of Art and Design (2007). Her paintings are a sort a trip on the dreams. They seemed to me as nice caresses for heart and soul. Deborah Alexander is working out of Newbourne Studios (Woodbridge, Suffolk, England) where a gallery showcases contemporary paintings for interiors. Deborah Alexander was Artist in Residence in Ipswich Hospital's Diagnostic Imaging Department (2006) and has created Artwork for both Ipswich Hospital and East Suffolk MIND.

During Parallax AF days we had the way “to be on stage” with Berlin-based artist MIRIAM WUTTKE. She presented an interesting performance: "Embracing the Animal Mind" from the series “Dress to Kill-The end of Post Colonialism”. The piece revolved around anxiety and existential fears in post-colonialist societies and systems; the notion of losing control over a well constructed and preserved individualised life, as well as the need to regain a lost simplicity and innocence in the face of global discomfort on a per diem basis. "The embracement of the animal mind,” explains Wuttke, “is a poetic metaphor for the satisfaction of an elementary need. The performance reflects a process of retreat in order to overcome archaic, magical and cognitive thinking to find relief in a faunal counterpart...” The performance taked place all along the gallery of the Royal Opera Arcade.

Miriam lives and works in Berlin and New York where she worked on paintings, performances and installations. The pictorial research of Miriam Wuttke is developed from figurative wood and paper (1992-1997), painting of abstract expressionism (1997-2009). Miriam Wuttke performs mostly in performance within its own facilities "site specific". Her installations too are "site-specific". They consist of objects, collages, fragile, objets trouvés, ready-mades, manuscripts, paintings, drawings and video installations.

Another performance showed BETH JERVIS creativity and artistic expression. Beth - Paris-based artist – performed “A Banal Poem about a Man”, consisting of four poems and audio recordings woven together in relation to her two-dimensional work exhibited in Parallax AF, “Business Plan to End Capitalism”. She describes one of her numerous costumes during the performance as: “a projection of our idea that there is a beautiful other, trying to embody the beauty through norms rather than asking ourselves what makes us truly happy. Exuberance, success, drawn back through the vulnerability of the alternate other. We see the character and see something in the other and we see it in them but we realise we are as foolish as the character not to see it in our selves, just because the character is painted as a fool to have been all those things at once and not realised there is very little importance in the difference between those things, when it is a simple human being that is portraying them.”

Impossible not to see, at Parallax AF, the incredible cracked paintings by JEAN MARC ISERE, from Asnière sur Seine (France). His work does not arise from an intellectual stand but from a confrontation with the erosion of matter as such. Jean Marc says: “The cracked paintings allow the gaze, beyond the figurative proposition barely outlined in the foreground, to be freed from rational given and handed over the luminescence of the background”. As Jean Marc says, the spectator become s the agent of the work and ties up once more with his vital force”.

I had the opportunity to admire SAM PEACOCK works. He uses a mix of recycled metals and industrial paints to create landscape pieces. He gorges on the speed and power of mark making, the rawness and the ferocity of paint; how brush marks shift, scrape and overlap to build up structures and forms which compel him to paint. He looks incisively for the conversation within the form to build this up on the canvass as the work evolves. Sam 's painting is rooted in the abstract but links to landscape and architecture within the built environment. Colours become forged from the dilapidated wastelands of the industrial North and regenerated urbanized sprawls, right through the space of farmlands in Australia and the hectic communities within Thailand. The surfaces are constructed using a variety of rollers and industrial paints, the underlying textures show forms and motifs where the ideas all began.

At Parallax AF, just in front on my wall, on the right, AMY WRIGHT has presented her beautiful and fascinating works, that tell us some fragments of her path in the artistic life. Amy studied Arts Therapy at the University of Derby where she first began to really explore the use of oil paints. After a short hiatus starting in 1999, Amy returned to painting in 2003, inspired by living in Greenwich, London. She joined a network of artists at the Cor Blimey Art Studios in Deptford in 2005 and further continued her explorations into colour and texture. In 2006 Amy moved to San Francisco. She had a studio in Russian Hill and became a part of the Artist Community, participating in a number of exhibitions. Since moving back to the UK in 2008, Amy found new inspiration in the vibrancy and chaoticness of the London (Space Studios) until recently moving to the Kent Countryside, enjoying the more tranquil and breathtaking influence that has to offer.

Working in the Abstract Expressionistic style, Amy is influenced by emotions, people, surroundings as well as artists such as Hans Hoffman, Mark Rothko, and Philip Guston. As seen at Parallax, Amy explores the use of colour and texture. Her work is emotive and reflective, and allows the viewer to interpret through their own experiences, memories and feelings. She works in oils, the ideal medium to create the impasto texture that gives depth to her Art. Her favourite colour? Blue.

I was really ashtonished by DAPHNE HUGHES Art, for certain aspects so close to my kind of artworks. Daphne is working in the South East of England in Leighton Buzzard,Bedfordshire. She is a Contemporary Artist creating large Abstract paintings based on her Photography. She loves to exploring the minute details of surfaces inherent in objects that surround us. She captures images and exposes their complex surface textures, observing and translating these qualities into paintings. She uses to create large scale fabrications of texture or movement. Each painting is unique and original with strong visual qualities, and by their nature create a tactile response by the use of mixed and diverse mediums.

Daphne worked on a series of large paintings inspired by the discarded object and corroded materials in the environment. She interprets and captures the spirit of their unconventional displacement and existence into paintings in her own unique style. Her works reflect an enhanced physical version intensifying the original qualities.

Daphne Hughes says: “As a passionate Artist I am focused on my forthcoming project which will be a series of individual original Abstract paintings of the surface qualities of ancient fishing boats of Bali,Indonesia and the centuries of worn paint.” “Regenerations” was the title of the works showed at Parallax AF. Daphne published a book in which she tells her incredibile journey trough Art.

I was also captured by MARTINA KOLLE paintings. Martina – who divides her time between Italy and Germany, exhibiting in both countries as well as Turkey and the United States - works between the regions of the abstract and the representational where only myths and symbols reside.

Having practiced homeopathic therapy for over 15 years, Kolle draws upon her own inner resources to give life and vitality to an art that, in the end, is always her own. Her signs and symbols sit outside of our regional languages to form a universal, pictorial grammar only accessible through intuition. Some works pay homage to Georgia O'Keefe's quivering slips of line that flatten out into organic symmetries. We also see the muscular and assertive hard-line geometries of Joseph Stella's late paintings. Moving past the feminine and masculine, Kolle's pictures evade category while offering enough familiarity to be arresting. Her intensely saturated yellows, reds, and blues swirl into vortices, drip with gravity, and expand into an ethereal openness like light reflecting off mist.

Martina Kolle says: “During my long-lived therapeutical experiences as a homeopath, balance has always been my main topic, especially its effects on the human spirit, body and soul. My oil on canvas paintings are compensators. Every topic, the colours and composition of each single painting, are given to me in quiescence and are then transferred onto canvas.”

Parallax AF gave me the pleasure to meet Czech born artist DAGMAR DOST-NOLDEN, who participated at the Biennale di Venezia “Creative Room” (2009) and Third International Forum in Bolognano, at Casa dell'Arte founded by Lucrezia De Domizio Durini. International artist-painter, sculptor and performer, Dagmar Dost-Nolden – who lives in Cologne, Germany - is fascinated by different forms of energy. Nearly all her paintings, sculptures, objects, installations and performances relate to this subject. Energy is streaming and changing, and art follows the same principle. She considers that art is not a static subject, but interacts with its surroundings. Architecture, nature, people, everything is influencing each other, changing not only the view, but also thoughts and thinking processes.

Not belonging in any of the strong art opinions she has developed her own art. It arisese out of an idea as well as an inspiration during the painting process. Both, the idea, spirit and the energy are being included. She says: “Human being, so as everything others too, is only a small part of free streaming energy that is forming all the universe”. Dagmar has been acknowledged in plenty of exhibitions in many countries. This year she participated at Art Fair Shanghai and Art Fair Beijing.

I like also to mention artworks by DAVID ABSE, KIMBAL QUIST BUMSTEAD, MATTJ FLETCHER, KIMBERLY JEAN WEBB, SOREN MAYES, SUE SKITT, COLIN PEARCE, and the four Polish Artists MARLENA PROMNA, TOMASZ PIETREK, HANNA SLIWINSKA, ANDREI RAFALOWICZ.

BULWARK DESIGN" FOR MY "LACER/ACTIONS" ON SHOW IN LONDON AT "PARALLAX AF

The three "Lacer/actions" artworks on show in London at Parallax AF (La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall) are presented to visitors in a dimension that is not visible through the pictures posted on the web. In fact, only a live view enables the eyes to detect a particular feature. That is, some type material "elements" – whose transparency is absolute - which have been deposited in some areas of the image on canvas.

BULWARK DESIGN FOR ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI'S LACER/ACTIONS

It's the result of the positive collaboration and experimentation that I have carried out with Bulwark Design, of the SRS group in Fiorano Modenese (Italy). I had the way to know the activities of Bulwark in design and in ceramics, stones, glass and other materials manufacture. Being "Lacer/actions" an open project - that communicates and engages with the possible evolutions of the most innovative research and applications - I was very glad to work and to experiment on the canvases on exhibition for the London event. Thanks to Simona Malagoli, area manager, and to Beppe Cesana, decorator and artist (he is also an accomplished photographer: see the pictures he took in plagued areas of the former Yugoslavia, carried around in a series of exhibitions) we worked to make the three images even more mysterious and suggestive (with the assistance of Valeria and Paola).

I repeat: the live view only is able to reveal the outcome of this trial, which led on canvases areas some streams of brightness and of tri-dimensionality. And so, thanks to the Bulwark Design 's magic touch” - it must be said - I experienced a further opportunity for the development of my visual expression. Everything is on exhibition at  "Parallax AF" in London (14, 15, 16 October, 2011).

Thanks for the cooperation to all the Bulwark Design 's team and Corrado Fontanini, founder of SRS in Fiorano Modenese (Modena), a worldwide leading company in the supply of design and engraved silicon rolles, as well as in the production of screens for serigraphic printing and different pronting tools for ceramic; SRS is also based in Brazil, Spain, Mexico, Iran and Egypt, where it operates with the most advanced technologies, producing true art works for our environments and for our daily life.

MY “LACER/ACTIONS” ON SHOW AT "PARALLAX AF" IN LONDON

ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI 'S LACER/ACIONS AT PARALLAX AF LONDON - OFFICIAL POSTER

My “lacer/actions” artworks will be on show in London, at “Parallax AF” (Wall 12, La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall) from 14 to 16 October, 2011). The exhibition 's curator, the art historian dr. Chris Barlow, selected three works:

  • Nine Eleven, New York 2001, Victims & Martyrs, The Blood Tracks #2”, Canvas, 47x70, 2011

  • As running fast water...”, Canvas, 62x42, 2010

  • I don't like to stand still”, Canvas, 62x42, 2010

I think that they may represent and show something about my research about the incredible world of “street signs”: the mysterious dimension of torn posters. I've collected more than 30.000 images. The three ones I present at “Parallax” are only a small indication about my art, that people like to call “psycho-artworks” or images that seem to come from Nowhere... During the show – private view included – I'll be very glad to meet people and tell them something about my art.

ABOUT PARALLAX AF

http://www.barlowfinedrawings.com/robertoalborghetti.html

Parallax AF is the first art fair of its kind to use new theories from art history in its approach. It showcases established and emerging international contemporary artists.

Parallax AF grew out of an international exhibition that was conceived and curated by the art historian Dr Chris Barlow. It is different from other artists fairs in that it is like a specialised exhibition. It is a serious platform for international and national artists to present their work to national and international dealers, art industry people, collectors, critics and buyers in an exhibition format underpinned with critical theory.

This also provides artists with the benefit, if they wish, to present non-commercial work, or to try out new commercial ideas, without high overhead risks often associated with other fairs.

Parallax AF held in a professional gallery space in central London. The shows are curated by a professional guest curator, having the feel of an organised exhibition, and catalogue essays are written by academics. Parallax AF aims to provide a key service in helping artists to promote and sell their work, as well as providing a platform for developing their careers and practice.

It is loosely divided into two exhibition showcases presenting abstraction/conceptual and figurative/conceptual art. The Parallax AF takes place at La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall and is curated by Dr Chris Barlow.

Abstract/conceptual show: 14th – 16th October (Friday-Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 10am-5pm)

Figurative/conceptual show: 21st – 23rd October (Friday-Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 10am-5pm)

LE MIE “LACER/AZIONI” NEL CUORE DI LONDRA

Le mie “lacer/azioni” saranno in mostra a Londra, alla “Parallax AF” (“La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall) dal 14 al 16 ottobre 2011. Il curatore dell'evento, lo storico dell'arte dr. Chris Barlow, ha selezionato tre opere:

  • Nine Eleven, New York 2001, Victims & Martyrs, The Blood Tracks #2” (Undici Settembre, New York 2001, Vittime & Martiri, Le Tracce del Sangue #2, Tela, 47x70, 2011)

  • As running fast water...” (“Come acqua che corre veloce...”, Tela, 62x42, 2010

  • I don't like to stand still” (“Non mi piace stare fermo”, Tela, 62x42, 2010

Penso che questi artworks possano raprresentare e mostrare qualcosa della mia ricerca nell'incredibile mondo dei “segni di strada”: la misteriosa dimensione dei manifesti strappati. Ho finora collezionato più di 30.000 immagini. Le tre che presento alla “Parallax” sono solo un piccolissimo indizio della mia attività nel campo dell'arte visuale, che la gente già chiama “psico-immagini” o scene che sembrano arrivare da Nessunposto... Durante la mostra sarò lieto di incontrare il pubblico per uno scambio di idee sulla mia attività artistica.

A PROPOSITO DI “PARALLAX AF”...

http://www.barlowfinedrawings.com/robertoalborghetti.html

Parallax AF è nata da una mostra internazionale chiamata “Parallax” che fu concepita e allestita dallo storico dell'arte Dr Chris Barlow. Parallax AF è la prima fiera dell'arte ad usare nuove tecniche d'approccio all'espressione artistica. Le sue “vetrine” annuali consentono agli artisti internazionali di emergere, offrendo una grande visibilità.

Parallax AF è diversa dalle altre mostre perchè è specializzata: è una vera e propria piattaforma per gli artisti nazionali ed internazionali che permette loro di presentare i propri lavori ai galleristi nazionali ed internazionali, agli industriali, ai collezionisti, ai critici e ai compratori. La mostra offre agli artisti il vantaggio di presentare opere non commerciali o di provare nuove idee senza rischi globali che spesso si verificano durante analoghe manifestazioni.

Parallax AF è situata in una galleria professionale nel centro di Londra: le mostre sono curate da un sovrintendente professionista in grado di realizzare eventi ben organizzati, con saggi su cataloghi redatti da accademici. Lo scopo di Parallax AF é quello di fornire un servizio per aiutare gli artisti a promuovere e vendere le loro opere e provvedere ad uno spazio per sviluppare la loro pratica e la loro carriera.

Parallax è divisa in due mostre-evento dedicate rispettivamente all'arte astratta/concettuale (dal 14 al 16 ottobre) ed all'arte figurativa/concettuale (dal 21 al 23 ottobre ).

SEDE DELLA MOSTRA

La Galleria” è il luogo più prestigioso dedicato all'arte contemporanea nel centro di Londra: è conosciuto dagli artisti in St.James e Mayfair e dalle fashion-communities per ospitare eventi culturali. È situata nella Royal Opera Arcade sul Pall Mall ed è di fronte all' Institute of Directors e all' Athenaeum Club. Dista due minuti dalla National Gallery e da Trafalgar Square. La stazione metropolitana più vicina è Charing Cross o Piccadilly. Parallax AF è curata dal Dottor Chris Barlow.

"ART IS A FORM OF HEALING": DR.SRINI PILLAY 'S WORDS IN A NEW "LACER/ACTIONS" CLIP

ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI'S LACER/ACTIONS ARTWORKS - IN AMNIOTIC FLUID, CANVAS, 57X87, 2010

 The evocative and deep thoughts expressed by Dr.Srini Pillay about my art in his article at “The Huffington Post”, suggested me to create a videoclip-fragment. So, here it is: thirty seconds of words, music and one of my “lacer/actions” psyco-artworks; I selected “In amniotic fluid” (canvas, 57x87, 2010).

It's a sort of flash of some good thoughts about art and healing from Dr. Pillay, Psychiatrist, Harvard clinician, brain-imaging researcher, speaker, “Huffpo” columnist and author (“The Life Unlocked”, “The Brain and Business”, “Tle Science behind The Law of Attraction”).

These are the phrases from which I chose the videoclip words ”Art is a form of healing whose effects we can see in the brain. When it is as beautiful as Alborghetti’s, it invites us to revisit the tragedy of terrorism, the horror of loss, and the beauty of our own resilience as we make our way through this mysterious life.”
