Martha Cooper Looks Back at JR's History with 11 Spring St and Trading Places with Liu Bolin

By - Thursday, April 5th, 2012

With the video going up today documenting the collaboration between JR and Liu Bolin, we take a look back at Martha Cooper’s post of photos documenting the process of the two working together and JR’s history with the 11 Spring Street building. “JR and Liu Bolin pulled off a complex collaboration at 11 Spring Street. This same building, just before a total renovation, was the site of a massive street art extravaganza organized by Marc and Sara Schiller of Wooster Collective in 2006. “Liu Bolin aka The Invisible Man usually has himself painted head to toe to blend in with his surroundings. Today, however, Bolin directed his assistants to paint JR into a background of a wheat pasted photo. The photo was one JR had taken earlier of Bolin. The disappearing act took place in full view of hundreds of fans, photographers and passersby amidst the sunny, springlike streets of Soho.” -Martha Cooper Text and Photo: Martha Cooper
