I will Commit Crime For Ever and a Day 2004

Stolen flower pots
Samchung Police Station, Seoul, Korea

The artist delivered stolen flowerpots to a Police Station during the exhibition period.
The delivery of flowerpots gradually increased until they ‘decorated’ the front wall of the police station.
The police station was transformed into a 24-hour gallery, in which the viewer was invited to walk around the inside of the police station. One policeman was asked to guide the viewer around police station, explaining the project. The work, in which the Police Station was a willing institutional participant, questioned the boundary between artwork and misdemeanor. The project also questioned the role of art, art objects and their relation to social power.
