What you see in this photogallery are not collages built and created deliberately with my hands, joining and sticking piece by piece, but photos of real and random torn publicity posters I saw on an outdoor billboard. They are the result of various and different overlaps – which took place over weeks and months – of advertising publicity posters with different contents.
I was lucky enough to catch them and to take pictures for my “Lacer/actions” Project and Archive which now count more than 90,000 abstract images I collected so far around the world.
I think that these random pics, as well as the thousands I have captured and documented so far , would really aroused the envy of Mimmo Rotella and Jacques Villeglè… These artists worked advertising posters snatching them from the billboards. But I think that the true and genuine art – a sort of evolution of the same street art – consists of leaving the torn and decomposed publicity posters where they are staying: on the billboards. This could be a fascinating and random show which transforms our cities in free outdoor “galleries”…
