I was often asked, how I made a painting or a collage. I like that kind of question, coz I also would ask an artist for the "making of". It is part of the history of an artwork. So, I started a little documentary in summer 2015.
Extracting posters in Paris, december 2017.
I often stroll through Google Street View to look for potenatial décollage spots. And I found some remarkable spots in Copenhagen's Nørrebro quarter, under a highway. (Source: Google Street View)
On August 23, 2021 I finally went to the spot. And the ripped and sprayed posters were still there.
I started cutting the thick layers. About 40 minutes later the whole poster stuff plumped down.
It was far too big to transport it. No chance without a van.
The idea was to roll it and transport it on a bike.
So I did.
Ready for bike transport.
In all major european cities is MBE. I do a lot of transports with them, from Italy, Portugal, Spain and now from Denmark.
The MBE-lady was very helpful. Thanks!
