The Essence of The Grifters™ 3.0
In this short three minute video "FREEDOM IS NOT DEFINED BY SAFETY", we are inundated and indoctrinated with the essence of The Grifters, with it's split second vignettes punctuated with the sarcastic and thought provoking commentary that The Grifters have become renowned for. If you were looking to take a crash course in The Grifters 101, this would be a great place to start.
Dissolving Europe is the new public art work that stormed Europe this year from Vermibus. Using a dubious inter-rail ticket, Vermibus set out with a set of 90 keys and his pallet of solvents to physically and temporally highjack the western world of advertisements in the name of fine art.
Each site is carefully deliberated with its environment, from Rolex boutiques, to archaic museums. The system looks simple in movement: unlock and roll the advertising poster to create a huge blank gleaming white breath of fresh air in the urban environment. The advert then undertakes the process of counter action painting using a series of solvents and brushes, it is then replaced in another site, another city, another country.
