Through direct reference to Andy Warhol’s oxidation paintings, the work attempts utilize the specifics of the location of TCB in a Chinatown alleyway- the site of frequent public urinations. A proposition towards the movement of things between the outside and inside of the gallery and how context and location inform work.
