The Ride, 2009
Wood, metal, fabric
The artist has created a fragmented slice of a dysfunctional amusement car ride. Quirky and animated, the cars come in pairs, each slightly different, resembling bumper cars, sleds and toboggans. They sit on fabricated tracks, suggesting a past mobility, infused with a sense of nostalgia for a past event, which is now long gone.
