untitled (racing)


40×70x200 cm
wood, wheels, tape, Cuprinol Transcolor
made for: Independent Worm Saloon, Sociedade Nacional de Belas Artes, Lisbon


When you put two stripes of tape along one side of an old car it becomes a racing car. Usually the car is a Toyota or Datsun from the seventies. I was interested in this cheap and highly aesthetic operation. I decided to try it on a wood monolith, and suddenly wheels appeared.
Racing was made for the Independent Worm Saloon exhibition, in 1994. Since this exhibition was about painting,the wood was previously painted with Cuprinol Transcolor.
