Over was illegal.
I don’t know exactly what law was broken, nor does it matter just like jaywalking is illegal but it doesn’t feel like it should be. There is something gently transgressive, to me, of defying both the rules against vandalism and the expectation of what comprises defacement in putting up well rendered oil paintings as graffiti.
Considering public space and public signage a gallery rather than the gallery charitably letting in the public, Over was a brief contemplation of what and how signs tell us what to do with our space and bodies and how we, as a public conform to these demands or act against them.
I made the show as easy to remove as possible, covering badly graffiti-ed signs on the Steel Bridge with small oil paintings that had elastic straps. It stayed up an entire day, which was longer than I anticipated, but was ultimately, unceremoniously destroyed.
