Volvo, 2020

Artist: Atelier Van Lieshout

Volvo is an abstract, Dadaesque work of art. Its random shape is decided by mechanical forces instead of deliberate artistic intervention. Its authorship is beyond human, and its form is timeless. The work was ‘made’ by Drop Hammer House, a large functional sculpture that represents destruction, recycling, and production in a circular economy. The work is a machine of destruction, a place for creation, and also a home, providing room for the fictional Venus/destructor to become one with the process of destruction.
