Emerging from graffiti culture, Merkli engages with processes that involve the transformation and overlaying of materials. Through his comprehensive photo wallpapers he relates forms and appearances of marked urban territories and transports them into a different environment. A confusing game arises, as borders disappear and the concrete exhibition space extends its architectural volume. By means of Merkli’s special montage technique, inside and outside begin to overlap and be interchanged.
