Car Dealer 1997

car dealer 1

(Windscreen sticker on car) series of ten cars distributed throughout Europe – by now mostly in scrapyards

From the painting by Poussin – ‘Et in arcadia ego’, in which a group of shepherds unexpectedly and to their great confusion discover a tomb and therefore the presence of death (or at least impermanence and change) in the midst of their paradise. This Arcadia, therefore, is wherever the car is.
