Documenting Exercises No.1 & 2: Improbables
& Peinture Au Cordeau Traceur.

Exercise No.1

December 17, 2012

The first part of a collaboration with Eltono in Besançon, France.

Two artists install bits of found wood with a hand saw and rubber mallet, into 52 cellar door and window spaces particular to Besançon, France. Using only tension to hold these in place, they demonstrate a variety of arrangement possibilities across a range of spaces in the city. The results may go unnoticed (as artwork) until enough are recognized and associated as such.

We were inspired largely by the types of urban modifications, barriers, and repairs on buildings that demonstrate odd solutions, curious physics, or appear to be total mysteries.  So we titled this “Improbables”, French for Improbables.

Wynwood Walls 2012

Thanks to Sean Mahan of L7 for assisting, the Walls team for all their support, the Goldman family and extended family for making this possible. I had a very nice time.  Meeting enormous artists that have been inspirational for a long while, in a swimming pool/South Beach atmosphere, was cool too.
