"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).
