Gallery Hopping - Day 2

Absolutely mesmerizing and totally fun is the best way I can describe the work of Ron Arad, recently shown at Paul Kasmin Gallery in NYC. The exhibition was called In Reverse and consisted of 6 of his "pressed flower" sculptures which are actually fill-sized, crushed Fiat 500s mounted on the wall.








I loved the attention to detail...including the keys still in the ignition!

Okay- I am still thinking about words for this one-
Do you know, did he actually have the cars pressed and bent a certain way or is this the way he found them? Very peculiar-
thanks for the share Seth!

When we were in Sicily, we went on a wild ride with the Fiat 500 car club. I sent your post to our tour guide, who also has her grandfathers old Fiat, and she loved it...bea
