“BURN MY HEART SO THAT I LIVE FOR LOVE” (“Abbruggia il mio cuore acciò viva per amore”) by Roberto Alborghetti . From “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” Project and Performance based on Scripts by Thomas from Bergamo (1563-1631).
COLLAGE OF WASTE-PAPER PIECES FROM TORN AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS, 2013, SIZE: 94X51 (ON WOOD)
The collage was created by Roberto Alborghetti with more than 300 small paper pieces collected along the streets as waste material from outdoor torn and decomposed publicity posters. It’s part of “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” project and performance based on Scripts by Thomas from Bergamo (1563-1631). “Words from the past, images from today, an experience for the future”.
LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban signs.
Roberto Alborghetti has collected so far around the world about 50.000 images.Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages (as the work shown above) or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn publicity posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition.
