Urban Art
Anne Peschken / Marek Pisarsky
Alternative Arts, Soho, London, 1991

Urban Art covered the walls of an empty shop in Soho with pages from the telephone book. They were printed with the famous image of war-destructed Dresden. A view from above with part of a church angel in the foreground. Ordinary London traffic bollards were suspended from the ceiling, flying through the room. The room was not accessible and could be looked at only through a peephole.
At the time a bronze statue of Bomber Harris was inaugurated in London.

 „Urban Art was chosen to work in London for a year because their past engagement with the modern city caught the imagination of the selectors. In London Urban Art have continued to collect the products and rejects of the metropolis and, through the techniques of exaggeration and repetition, to reflect on the disorientation of the city-dweller.“
