Urban art – the last ghetto

2 May

Tables and chairs that climb on the walls of a building, coming out of frames and windows. Cupboards that fly and coffee tables that come down from the ceiling. On the front of a strange building  in the suburbs of San Francisco.

Defenestration, Brian Gogginbrian-goggin_defenestration_

 

It’s the Defenestration House, abbandoned since 1997, transformed by the artist Brian Oggin in a extravagant mural sculpture. It becomes an symbolic work of the difficult economic experience by some of the members of  the neighbourhood, that taken over by debt and unemployment, feel that that are out of the windows of society.
