"I collected 4 wooden fruit crates from Istanbul and brought them in my luggage by plane to vienna, where I transformed them to picture frames. Those wooden boxes are collected and mostly reselled as firewood to other street hawker, who use it for example for fueling the grill to prepare their fish-sandwiched that they sell on the street or for the fire they need to boil the water for the tea and so on.
It‘s a continuation of my series which deals with transforming material from public-, private- and insti- tutional space. In that case I transform the value of that one-way cheap wooden fruit packaging from public space into precious picture frames." (quot. Ovidiu Anton)
