Speerstra Gallery Paris - Scandal "Emergency Graffiti box CS 400""

from 2006-01-04 to 2006-01-30

CS 400 "Emergency Graffiti box, reserved for the exclusive use of graffiti." An emergency station, a box containing one real can of spray paint, and four logos:

"break the glass"
"take the can"
"shake well"

In its origin, SCANDAL results from a simple intuition. A long-lived energy and a healthy anger which with years passing by, found its way of expressing himself throught street art. Subversion in the city, guerrilla acts towards institutions... SCANDAL is a urban troublemaker who signs as he acts. Contrary to the choice of his tag, the actions of SCANDAL were never the fact of hazard. For more than 10 years, this urban activist has illustrated himself by outstanding and original acts. Including vandal graffiti, wild postings and various detournements. SCANDAL constituted a reputation as one of an agitator, and never using the traditional circuits of diffusion.

"The object seems machined and installed by the roadway system, respecting the codes of descriptive, while giving the illusion of which the authorities guarantee the intrigues of graffiti artists."
