I got into the squat at Qeens gate, three buildings owned by the College and formerly an hotel. I took over the basement room previously the laundry. When I got back from Berlin I started making the boxes. I worked on them all at the same time in a very intense few months, ten, twelve hours a day. I invited everyone I knew and got a lot of good feed-back and a show at Angela Flowers, thanks to Norman Stevens.
|I'd made this small box on the right, one of the first gifts to Jacky when we were first married. It was the inspiration for the large boxes. Slight Marcel Duchamp reference, I think.|
