This piece succeded in the placement inside the museum of a very precise reproduction of the taggs that had plagued their exterior walls. These taggs which were considered an eye-sore, were translated into a massive tapestry that transformed a so called vandalism activity into a craft form. I´m very interested in placed the calligraphy of the streets in a contemplative frame, a cover which helps so that could be perceived it as a more conceptual aesthetic gesture.
