Splash – Rules of Vandalism – MOSES & TAPS™
Two weeks ago, The Grifters started a discussion about the “rules of vandalism”, taking place on their Instagram and Facebook accounts, as the first step of a project called #RulesOfVandalism. Along with artists MOSES & TAPS ™, they ask you: what are the rules of vandalism? Two weeks and thousands of comments later, they’re back – as promised – with the second stage of the project: a short film made by artist Good Guy Boris.
The idea behind the film is to show some of the statements and the definitions provided by participants.
“The main character hears disturbing voices in his head. Voices who command him how to paint graffiti. At the very end of the preparation and right before the execution of his piece, the character decides to ignore the voices and to set himself free. Nobody can put rules in something that is made to be chaos” Says Boris.
This film provides the occasion to link the social discussion to the last stage of the project – the exhibition, beginning on May 30 in Paris.
