Graffiti

"Graffiti is about making a claim and marking a border. Quite on the contrary, I am painting over the border—i.e., expanding the area rather than closing it off. I feel border districts to be zones of extremely dramatic theatricality, because that is where highly diverse interests overlap, intertwine, and are compelled within a narrow space to engage in competition, to exist in simultaneity. In border areas, we experience mutually exclusive things in an instant, as a paradox."
