IN GRAFFITI: The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal Video (Exerpt).Juxtapoz // Wednesday, 30 Nov 2011
In 2001, artist and filmmaker, Matt McCormick created a film connecting graffiti removal with characteristics of abstract expressionism, minimalism and Russian constructivism. Implying that “buffing” was created by artists who are unconscious of their artistic achievements and deserving of a place in the history of modern art. The video includes Narration from artist/actor Miranda July and was mostly shot on 16mm. See more of Matt’s work at his website.
