Untitled (ABC No Rio), 2009
A latex copy of the grafitti covering the entryway to the Lower East Side community center ABC No Rio. Copying each tag by hand with hand-mixed pigmented latex over the course of 6 weeks, Horisaki took advantage of the casting process to learn about the grafitti culture associated with ABC No Rio, capturing a history of the street poetry and visual conversations closely associated with this building in the final latex cast.
