Jonathan Schipper at Museum Tinguely Basel, Under Deconstruction

Jonathan Schipper | Museum Tinguely, Basel >>

“Jonathan Schipper’s The Slow Inevitable Death of American Muscle (2007-2008), pits technology against itself in an allegory of obsolescence, consumption and destruction. The installation is comprised of two cars that slowly enact a head-on collision over the course of an extended period of time, and in doing so, inevitably bring the memento mori onto the stage.”
