I Hate It When It Rains (in collaboration with Dorothee Kreutzfeldt) vinyl lettering, metal, paint, 2008. In 2004, Simon Gish had helped Dorothee to install hand-painted signs which were integrated within inner city Johannesburg, South Africa. Four years later, Dorothee decided to remove some signs, paint over others and offer them as space to other artists. She asked Simon Gush if he would like to take over one. Sitting in his studio in Belgium, he had been staring out at the rain for the last few weeks and was thinking about how weather defined my experience of a place and also how it has the ability to make me feel very foreign and out of place.
