Lek and Sowat have secretly invited graffiti writers to work with chalk and water on a blackboard at the Palais de Tokyo. The film – with its choppy editing and monochrome aesthetic – documents this experience while exploring the questions of relocating from the street to the institution, violence and destruction, and the fragility of a trace.
As part of project ‘DOES does’ the graffiti artist DOES searches for nice spots all over the world. In this episode he ended up in Heerlen, a city in the deep south of Holland. The colouring and flavour of DOES brought back life to the grey and industrial environment that was once a Philips factory.
The trip continues, this time the Subway Vacation crew visits Miami. Unfortunately they don’t get to finish their panels this time.
