"Supercharged Cord" (老爷车)
"Supercharged Cord" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
What’s better than bodacious babes sitting in the back of your 1937 Cord 812? That’s right, two of them swimming in it. But before the fun, you’ll remember sitting in this car for the first time, on yeye’s lap, just like it was yesterday. You’ll remember trying to push every button and knob on the dashboard as he honked the horn at Grandma Jean who was passing in front of it, on her way across old Pootoo Road. Then you’ll remember that you’re here now, in a different Shanghai, that the future has arrived and in place of your grandparents are two beautiful women with tight skin and not so many stories. The scene reminds one of the work of Julio Le Parc, an Argentinian-born modernist who played with ideas surrounding the flux and rotation of time within space. His kinetic creations tell the story of a life made of reflections, and of the processes that are shot through transformation. His work asks not who or what we are, but instead asks the equally important question of how we are. How are you?
