This is the incredible big container where I took my images from (see my previous post:“4GOT10 TEARS” ON THE CONTAINER NEAR THE ROYAL PALACE )
It was located in Amsterdam centre – near the Royal Palace, in the very heart of the city – outside a building yard. Workers were putting in it every sort of materials. And passers-by didn’t noticed it at all… On a side of the big container I saw something… spectacular. A sort of “public art installation” that Amsterdam doesn’t know to have.
The four parts in which the container was divided showed four incredible scenes. They were a sort of thin paper films left when someone had taken away the posters.An unusual and compelling combination – white paper film, iron, rust, red, grey and green colors of the container – originated something great for my eyes.
On request, I’m glad to present another selection of the images I took around the big container. All my “Lacer/actions” artworks are realistic, natural and not manipulated images. So, enjoy them. Yes, they are pure street art. And we have to bring back our eyes on the streets, where we may find compelling open air galleries…
ABOUT ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI’S LACER/ACTIONS ART
“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 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). One of my artwork will be kept at the new Contemporary Art Museum will open next September in Marche region (Italy). The next big Lacer/actions Show will take place in the enchanting XIII Century Rocca Aldobrandesca, an incredibile fortress in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from September 27 to November 4, 2012. An “The End of The World” event…
