Mina Cappussi – journalist, writer, editor in chief of the international daily magazine “A World of Italians” and professor at “La Sapienza” Roma 3 University – wrote this article about Roberto Alborghetti’s “Lacer/Actions” artworks:
Roberto Alborghetti choose to silence words and to let the images tell. LaceR/Actions are really unusual images, so far away from common visions. They are not manipulated images, they are natural images.
Alborghetti “spies” advertisings, and all what is ripped, sticked and lacerated paper, mixin’up styles, colors, explicit or subliminal messages. Alborghetti proceeds his research in an ingenious way, re-reading images and messages in the light of superimposition, like a photoshot with a long time exposure, lettin’ flow emotions, sensations, events that contaminate the original scene. And so, the contamination becomes art, and we have the way to discover new points of view and observation, settin’ free one mind of prejudices and conventional thoughts.
Roberto Alborghetti ‘s laceR/Actions are movement and action that born from breaking rules and plans, they are pure art enclosed inside paper fragments, layed down as a fecund seed on the world walls.
