“I got bored of keeping all the mail that I received, obsessively hoarding it in a growing number of cardboard boxed. I wanted to do something different with it, actually USE it in some way, so in June 1987, when I moved into a new house (34 Cotesbach Rd.), I decided to use the mail as wallpaper, I pasted all of my mail directly onto the walls, until the whole room was covered, than I went over it again, and again, until in September 1988, when I moved house, that had been covered three times over, it had been a continuously changing installation from June 1987 to September 1988.“ Mark Pawson
