Cultural Cleansing Committee
30 May - July 10, 2004
A warning or an invitation!? Who are the CulturalCleansing Committee? and whats with the grey paint?
Treason Seditio's process in the making of this work began by documenting 'memorial' sites located in Christchurch City Centre. She photographed temporary, unauthorised art sites, mainly sites of prominent graffiti work, as well as permanent, authorised sites of art production. In time Seditio became aware of ominous grey patches of paint evident on various graffiti hotspots. Who are the cultprits behind the desecration of this 'public art'?
Seditio, an advocate of highly visible urban art project sites like KIOSK, through CulturalCleansing Committee encourages to 'activate a dialogue regarding the legitimacy of unauthorised artwork appearing on the streets' (Seditio).
