“I SAW A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH”
by Roberto Alborghetti
COLLAGE OF PAPER PIECES FROM
TORN AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS
2012, CM.70X50 Framed
This collage – created with hundreds of paper pieces from torn and decomposed publicity posters (its title is from “Apocalypse” of John) – is displayed at Room #7 at Roberto Alborghetti Show (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) which is taking place at Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy); the show has been extended till January 15, 2013.
In Room #7 – it’s a sort of hidden space you have to discover at the end of your visit at the exhibition – are presented for the first time five particular collages created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” Project…
Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs. Roberto has already collected, around the world, more than 40.000 images.
Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), re-build on collages, or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn publicity posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition.
