PUBLIC DOMAINE EXHIBIT

This exhibit in Paris pretty much sums it up….

Public Domain, without the “e”, is the name of one of the skateboarding videos produced by Stacy Peralta which helped revolutionize the aesthetics and image of skateboarding towards the end of the 1980s.
Public Domaine, with an “e”, is the homage paid to an art form which has chosen a plank and four wheels as its medium of self-expression with which to reclaim the public domain and to reinterpret it with its twists and whorls on the asphalt. Because “skateboarding” is much more than just a sport, an activity, a hobby or a means of transport… Over the years, it has forged itself a rich, evolving aesthetic and transformed itself in the course of its encounters with artists – from designers to musicians – who have taken it as their traveling companion.
