FROM TORN POSTERS TO SILK SCARVES

 

 My Lacer/actions artworks also transformed in textiles designs.

The dirty and torn papers of the advertisings posted on the walls of our cities have now become silk scarves too! After to be already transferred on canvas, lithographies and videoclips, my “Lacer/actions” artworks were transformed in silk textiles thanks to collaboration of Bruno Boggia Studio (Como, Italy) who for over sixty years has been working with the most famous designers and fashion brands in the world (Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana…).

Bruno Boggia, with the invaluable assistance of his daughter Lucia, and with the support of his staff, helped me in the selection of artworks to be converted into silk scarves. And so, within a few days, the challenge reached the finish line. The images of that dirty and ripped paper have changed now in the elegance, delicacy and sheen of silk scarves.

The photographs of a couple of scarves, reproduced in this page, they are going to demonstrate it. Images about ripped and dirty advertisings, left to decompose on the walls or billboards, are now soft silk scarves, ready to be worn.

DALLA CARTA-RIFIUTO ALLE SCIARPE DI SETA

La carta – sporca, strappata, lacerata ed usurata – della pubblicità affissa sui muri delle nostre città è ora diventata anche sciarpe di seta. Dopo essere diventati tele e litografie, e pure videoclips, i miei artworks “Lacer/azioni” si sono trasformati anche in tessuto di seta grazie alla collaborazione dello Studio Bruno Boggia Disegni (www.boggiadisegni.it) che da oltre sessant’anni lavora con i tessuti ed i più famosi stilisti del mondo (qualche nome: Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, l’emergente newyorkese Rolando Santana…)

Bruno Boggia, con la preziosa assistenza della figlia Lucia e con il supporto delle sue collaboratrici, mi ha aiutato nella scelta di alcuni artworks da trasformare in sciarpe di seta, confezionate con tutti i crismi del caso. E così, nel giro di pochi giorni, l’impresa è giunta al traguardo. La carta-trash è ora l’eleganza, la delicatezza e la lucentezza di sciarpe di seta.

Le fotografie di un paio di sciarpe, che qui sono riprodotte insieme ad un videoclip, lo stanno a dimostrare. Immagini che in origine erano sporche carte strappate, lasciate decomporre sui muri o sui pannelli della pubblicità, sono ora diventate morbide sciarpe di seta, pronte da essere indossate.

STREET ART and FASHION: HOW TO CREATE SILK TEXTILES FROM RIPPED ADS ON CITY WALLS

 Lacer/actions artworks by Roberto Alborghetti are now textile designs made with the internationally known Bruno Boggia Studio.

 

 Once upon a time there was a waste … It was the dirty, torn, and worn paper of the advertisings posted on the walls of our cities. Perhaps it was unthinkable that, from waste paper, we could take and pull out something beautiful and aesthetically attractive. But, I’ve made it with my project “Lacer/actions”: to transform paper-trash images in a subject of art, or at least in a watchable product. The proof? My canvases and lithographs, and even the videoclips running trough a lot of websites around the world. And now, I check out a unique experiment that has become reality thanks to Bruno Boggia, in Como, who for over sixty years has been working with the most famous designers and fashion brands in the world (Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana…).

Bruno Boggia, founder of the prestigious Design Studio in Como (www.boggiadisegni.it ), appreciated immediately my artworks “Lacer/actions”. He found in my works – images of ripped ads! – shapes, colors and graphics solutions so close to contemporary art and design. He found, in my “Lacer/actions”, images so similar to patterns and motifs created by his designers team, whose works are sold all over the world.

Said and done. Bruno Boggia, with the invaluable assistance of his daughter Lucia, and with the support of his staff, helped me in the selection of artworks to be converted into silk scarves, packed with all the trappings of the case. And so, within a few days, the challenge reached the finish line. The images of that dirty and ripped paper have changed now in the elegance, delicacy and sheen of silk scarves.

Me too, when I passed the scarves in my fingers, I was really impressed and moved. I think that, in some ways, it’s an extraordinary and innovative result. The photographs of a couple of scarves, reproduced in this page, they are going to demonstrate it. And even better, aesthetically, it was when young women of Bruno Boggia Studio wanted to wear “Lacer-ations” silk scarves. It was a sort of personal “defilèe” where they were highlighting the uniqueness of images taken from reality. Images that were originally ripped and dirty advertisings, left to decompose on the walls or billboards.

Now, they have become soft and beautiful silk scarves. Incredible, but true. Thanks to Bruno Boggia, to Lucy, to all the Studio in Como, to have participated to this unimaginable and creative development of my project.

LE IMMAGINI DEI MURI-TRASH ORA SONO SETA D’AUTORE

Le Lacer/azioni di Roberto Alborghetti sono diventate textile design. In collaborazione con Bruno Boggia, Studio che lavora con i più noti stilisti internazionali.

C’era una volta un rifiuto… Era la carta – sporca, strappata, lacerata ed usurata – della pubblicità affissa sui muri delle nostre città. Forse impensabile che, dai rifiuti cartacei, si potesse trarre ed estrarre qualcosa di bello e di esteticamente suggestivo. Eppure, penso di avercela fatta, con il mio progetto “Lacer/azioni”, a trasformare la carta-trash in un soggetto d’arte, o quantomeno in un prodotto guardabile.

Lo stanno a dimostrare le mie tele e litografie, e pure i videoclips, che girano su decine e decine di siti in tutto il mondo. Ed ora, lo prova anche una singolare sperimentazione, che è diventata realtà grazie allo Studio Bruno Boggia Disegni (www.boggiadisegni.it) che da oltre sessant’anni lavora con i tessuti ed i più famosi stilisti del mondo (qualche nome: Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, l’emergente newyorkese Rolando Santana…)

A Bruno Boggia, fondatore del prestigioso Studio di Como, i miei artworks “Lacer/azioni” erano piaciuti subito. Vi aveva ritrovato forme, colori e soluzioni grafiche da arte contemporanea. Che sono poi quelle che anch’egli usa ed impiega, con l’aiuto dei suoi bravi disegnatori, per ideare trame e motivi per i tessuti, soprattutto sete, i cui bozzetti sono venduti in tutto il mondo.

Detto e fatto. Bruno Boggia, con la preziosa assistenza della figlia Lucia e con il supporto delle sue collaboratrici, mi ha aiutato nella scelta di alcuni artworks da trasformare in sciarpe di seta, confezionate con tutti i crismi del caso. E così, nel giro di pochi giorni, l’impresa è giunta al traguardo. La carta-trash è ora l’eleganza, la delicatezza e la lucentezza di sciarpe di seta.

Anch’io, quando mi sono passato le sciarpe tra le dita, mi sono per cosi dire commosso. Penso che sia un risultato per certi versi straordinario. Sicuramente innovativo. Le fotografie di un paio di sciarpe, che qui sono riprodotte insieme ad un videoclip, lo stanno a dimostrare. E ancora più efficace, sul piano estetico, è stato quando le collaboratrici di Bruno Boggia si sono messe a indossare le sete di “Lacer-azioni”. Una personalissima “passerella”, in cui venivano risaltate la singolarità e l’unicità di immagini prese dalla realtà. Immagini che in origine erano sporche carte strappate, lasciate decomporre sui muri o sui pannelli della pubblicità.

Ora, eccole, diventate bellissime e morbide sciarpe di seta. Incredibile, ma vero. Grazie a Bruno Boggia, a Lucia, a tutto lo Studio di Como, per avere reso possibile questo impensabile sviluppo creativo del mio progetto.

BRUNO BOGGIA, DESIGN IS LIFE

  

Meeting in Como with the creator of textiles design internationally known. He worked for Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, YSL, Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith … And he’s interested too in my “laceR/Actions” artworks.

 

Bruno Boggia. Drawings. It says so the simple plate of the front door, in the building of Via Pietro da Breggia 3, a short walk from the shores of Lake Como. Moreover, there are no other ways to submit a study that for nearly sixty works in textile design, creating prototypes that are known and bought in the world. “Boggia” is a prestigious and historic brand. And, without rhetoric, helps to represent the national creativity, that’s the pride and honor of Italy.

Visiting the Boggia Studio, personally knowing the founder and animator – Bruno -, attending the working stages of his team, is an experience that lets you travel into the emotions of color and history of a small company that, from the heart of Como, has landed in the most important “maisons” of international fashion. Bruno Boggia is now a young man of 83 years who, every day, has the strength to find, in his work, creative spirit and motivation of life and desire to do and discover. It goes like this ever since – a child – he liked to scribble figures on a few sheets of paper he could find around the house. Born in Carate, always on the shores of Lake Como, a childhood lived simple and humble as it was for most kids at that time, thrown through the difficulties of an era marked by war.

The passion for drawing led him to Milan to attend the Academy Cimabue, with an examination at the Brera. Bruno remembers, not without emotion, which at that time had no money to buy oil paint and then make do as best he could, because the desire to draw and express themselves was too strong. Boggia Bruno says: “It was very poor then. Do not fare well. And the difficulties were many, including me. Therefore, the design was also a way to earn a personal freedom, to build dreams. I had confidence and I did. Even if every day there is always something to learn … The design for me is life. It’s the dream. It ‘s all. “

In 1953, Bruno Boggia set up his studio in Como. Extends drawings and sketches for textiles, especially silk, because Como city means silk too. As with all beginnings, the road is uphill. But day after day Bruno’s designs attracted interest, provoke astonishment. Orders arrive, even from abroad, where the Boggia Studio is appreciated for its creativity and rigorous style. Aspects that characterize today’s production and activity of Boggia brand. Bruno work together with her daughter Lucia and a specialized team of designers. He offered his own artistic expression signatures to important Houses for haute couture and pret-a-porter: Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, YSL, Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith. The work of Bruno Boggia is critical to the success of a brand. His contribution is a “behind the scenes, often unknown and far away from the catwalk. But there is no doubt what the design affect the consensus generated from a fashion line. And as the design and overall influence on the final image of a leader. Those of Boggia are exclusive designs and custom over the years have helped to establish a unique creative archive.

Today, as always, Boggia Bruno loves to discover and to face with new ideas and experiments. He loves being in touch with artists and painters, to whom are offered opportunities of expression and commitment. And Bruno Boggia was easy tuned into my “LaceR/ Actions” pics. Seeing some of my artworks reproduced on the album published by Velar-portfolio or on a computer screen, he tells me plainly that he likes them and that he likes the idea through which are “products”. Moreover, he has attracted and fascinated by abstract shapes and coloristic vibrations emanating from the mix of colors. I am confident that, armed with his camera, he never loses an opportunity to capture details and particulars of the things around us. And he show me the subjects on the screen of his digital Canon. They are images of the transparency of glass of a bottle of water, the holes of the speakers of a TV screen, the veins of the leaf of a plant. He also shows me drawing sheets obtained in France and in Eastern Europe. It is delighted by the color and its shape. He says that the images are music. And light and energy.

Boggia Bruno tells me that its productions are unaware of the crisis. And there are orders from abroad. Recently his commercial agent, Esther Serra, has traveled to China, where she collected a great deal. A big success in a continent where silk production is a tradition, as well as a driving force economically. Yet Boggia has surprised even the Chinese with his own “Silk Road”. “If there is good work, there is no crisis,” he says. And every day, he continues to operate in his studio, seeing, suggesting, planning and creating. Every now and then, he looks up and throws a glance over the windows, to the waters of the lake, where many colors are reflected. The nature, in this warm spring, cannot fail to fascinate Bruno Boggia, artist of the drawing.
