BASURA: Pop-Up Art Exhibition and Installation
BASURA will be the final product of a pandemic-long artistic journey between two friends. Brian and Vivona were trapped in a sinking pirate ship of a loft in Chinatown, Boston, MA when they decided to collaborate and create an installation at Tattooed Mom. Struggle, progress, more struggle, and Anthony Hawk Professional Skateboards ensued. They created a book that would transfer to the hallowed walls of this wildly amazing astral plane. Once arriving in Philadelphia, PA to install this piece over two years ago, they were exposed to COVID by garbage fire ding dongs, their vehicle tried to explode, and the city was in full riot and protest mode. They were quarantined and losing their minds…
Since then, Brian has relocated to Philly and Vivona has relocated to Southern California. But for two people like them, the itch was not scratched and the story just got better. This installation and exhibit will be the trigger for a new version of the book, and in many opinions, a more interesting and compelling story.
