Martyn Cross - "My vandalism was vandalised."

Martyn Cross - Black Flag 197 - Knitting Pattern and Biro

The piece is called 'Black Flag 197' and was originally made for the 'Black Flag Series' - a group of works made using found knitting patterns and a biro. The flags are viewed as relics of an age that has never existed; utopia viewed in a black hole.

This piece failed simply because the degraded surface of the antique knitting pattern kept lifting up leaving white marks. My vandalism was vandalised.
