The hotel Au vieux panier asked me to design a room, I first told them that I wasn't interested doing just decoration in the room but I wanted
to create something that will look more like an installation. I thought about it also as a huge canvas where I needed to think about the composition
and play with the empty white part of the room to accentuate more the idea of Chaos on the other part. Then I asked my friend Tober who gat a great
old school style for tags, Grizz who is also the man behind the camera and Don Cho who is a Hip Hop singer from Marseille but who used to be
a tagger from my home town Toulouse. It took one week to do the whole thing cause the idea was to exaggerate what you can usually see in some
abandoned places. Too much tags, too much drips, too much sentences, too much throw ups ... What I also wanted to show is that people can appreciate
any type of graffiti, even the more basic, it's just a matter of point of view ...
I have been stenciling since 2003 and I thought it was about time I gave people a little insight into how I work. Cutting stencils isn't a spectacle, it's done in solitude and so I think a lot of my friends, artist or not, will find this interesting.
The painting featured in the video is titled 'And I'm Not Going To Take This Anymore'. Photos and more details about the piece can be found at pahnl.co.uk/store/anymore.php
Catherine Cabeen and Company "Into the Void" filmed as part of OntheBoards.tv, a contemporary performance on-demand site.
Inspired by postmodern visual artist Yves Klein, Into the Void mixes visual arts, drag performance and precise choreography performed by 5 dancers to evoke the complex gender politics of Klein's work. Juxtaposing ornate materials with open spaces and transparent fabrics, the stage environment and materials mimic Klein's artistic ideals as re-envisioned by a creative team including Michael Cepress (costume design), Kane Mathis (music), Susan Robb (sculpture), Tivon Rice (digital media) and Connie Yun (lighting).
Graham-trained dancer/choreographer Catherine Cabeen was a longtime Bill T. Jones performer and assistant (including Assistant Choreographer for the award winning Spring Awakening). In 2009 she was a finalist in The A.W.A.R.D. Show! Seattle. Since then she has founded Catherine Cabeen and Company to act as a forum for investigating both the creative processes and artistic products that result when artists of different mediums collide.

This project is refer to two historical works. one is David Hammons' Bliz-aard Ball Sale (1983), the artist was selling snow balls on the street in New York winter time. the other is legendary Japanese comic "Nowhere Man(Munou no hito)" by Yoshiharu Tsuge(1985), A cartoonist loosed his job and decided to sell stones at a river side. my question is how it would be in-between snow ball and stone? disappearing and existing, useless and functional, art and object, fabricate and found.
I rent a booth at a flea market in Los Angeles to sell palm fronds which is easily find out everywhere on a street. In the process of documenting people's reaction, I realized that I was selling an idea or an experience or a story through palm fronds.
