Hier das wahrscheinlich elaborierteste Streetart-Video, das ich in einer ganzen Weile gesehen habe. Vhils verarbeitet die Studentenproteste in Paris 1968 mit Graffitis, die er nach dem Sprühen mit einem Presslufthammer bearbeitet, was er in einem superträumerischen Video fetsgehalten hat. Sieht erstmal etwas lahm aus, das alles, aber desto länger man drüber nachdenkt, desto fantastischer wird diese Aktion. Snip von Wooster:

Paris, May 1968. When the enragés started digging up the stones from the Boulevard St. Michel to use them as weapons against the forces of the old order, they came upon the sand that covered the surface underneath them. The earth. Beneath the concrete, the earth. Beneath the urban environment, nature. Beneath the artificial, life.

Behind all these brick and concrete walls, these dull, grey surfaces that condition our existence, behind all of these cities, there is life. There are individuals, there is nature. “Scratching the surface” is an act of creation taken from lifeless forms. It is the subversion of lifeless forms. The act of engraving the idea of life on a wall, of creating the image of an individual, an iconographic piece of representational symbolism that will endure. As if rendering him eternal by bringing him to life where life was not supposed to be. By carving it out of that which is still-born by its very nature, by its design.

So until the symbolical demise of all walls that separate, that impose, that condition, of a social system that overbuilds in order to control and perpetuate its grasp on the divisions that stem from this eternal partitioning and keep individuals in place, it will be easier and easier to forget who we are, where we come from and what nature is really all about. How easy it is to lose track of what our nature really is while caught amid this saturated, un-organic environment.
