Installed for It’s A Trap, organized by Where?
New York, 2018 - ongoing
In many US states, a particular shade of purple paint is a legal territorial marker. It is called No Hunting Purple, available by the gallon.
In 2018 in New York City, we take a purple-marked fence from the countryside and install it on the roof of a bank, claiming $14,319 worth of the building’s air rights. We tell no one. It remains today.
