Vauxhall commissioned British artist Alex Chinneck to create an art installation with only one guideline, to somehow incorporate the new Corsa Supermini. The resulting piece showcases the car upside down on a concrete quarter pipe, as if displaying centripetal force from fast motion. Chinneck remarks about the piece: “I see sculpture as the physical reinterpretation of the material world around us and so by introducing fictional narratives into familiar scenarios, I try to make everyday situations as extraordinary as they can be. I choose to do this through illusions because I think there is something both optimistic and captivating about defying the realms of possibility… With an effortlessly curling road I hoped to transcend the material nature of tarmac and stone, giving these typically inflexible materials an apparent fluidity.” Located right by the London Eye, the gravity-defying piece will be held in Southbank Centre Car Park in London until February 25.
