Ubbe & Mejsson (2018)

42 x 200 cm Poster

Ubbe & Mejsson is a long poster reworking material from the archive of the Kalmar City Library. I chose an interview from a Swedish yearly magazine titled “Ungdomsåret 1980”. The interview features the friends “Ubbe” and “Mejsson” who were pioneers of tagging in Stockholm. The poster also includes images from the SVT documentary “Eran” (2017) which coincidentally includes photos of Ubbe & Mejsson. The bottom part of the poster features a short text written by me. There I contemplate the longevity that the archive has given them and also consider the temporality of graffiti tags, youth, and friendship.
