BMW Art Car – Showroom for Olafur Eliasson
In the middle of the huge staircase at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, we created an inconspicuous cube for the exhibition “The World is Yours”. The cube housed a specially cooled interior containing an exhibit by the Finnish artist Olafur Eliasson. Within the cube visitors discovered a prototype of the hydrogen-powered BMW H2R racing car which Eliasson had covered with a complex translucent skin of steel, shiny metal plates and numerous layers of ice. The result was a fascinating art project whose special demands challenged us in a really positive way.
