CUT I HIT I TEAR | STRIKE I SCRAPE I DIG

I had been cutting into things throughout my life. I had made works back in 1981 cutting shapes and lines in cardboard constructions. Since 1988 I have been cutting, scratching and slicing into sheets of paper, in a series I still continue today called Page-Specific.
I began making a series of proposed and invisible works. I made a piece just of labels. One of the ideas was to make a wall cuts. This came about after doing massive building work on my own house. 
I saw the possibility of using the wall like the paper as a material. As usual once i had this idea i tried to find somewhere to try this out.
I had friends living in Leytonstone whose ACME houses were about to be demolised. I tried to get permission to work in these houses but it was denied.Well, I just gained access illegaly and made my work. I had to be quick to avoid detection from the police and security guards that were all over the area as it was the centre of massive demonstrations and occupation.
