In an odd twist to a vehicle more commonly seen sporting chrome 22s or a set of Spinners, artist Matthew Harrison today unveiled his latest project simply entitled ‘Hummer’ at the fifth Zoo Art Fair in London.
The Hummer H3, complete with wooden wagon wheels, will be parked opposite the Royal Academy of Arts for the duration of the fair.
“Similar to Hummer, this sculpture really is like no other. As well as being built for action, the H3 certainly has a unique, iconic style. ”
Harrison combined the legendary off-road vehicle with ‘Wild West’ wooden wheels to create a sculpture that is a mixture of art, engineering and motoring, and for him at least, the crux of the Hummer is formed by both its being and its afterlife - what ever that means.
