Art News Blog: Lamborghini Art

A man in California liked the look of his Lamborghini Countach so much that he has done a Marcel Duchamp with it. The Californian millionaire Richard Moriarty has bolted his 1974 sports car to a wall in his house and called it art.

The vehicle had to be lowered through his living room skylight using a 70 ton crane.
The engine was also taken out to become the “200 mph coffee table”.

I think it’s more of a statement about the price of oil than a work of art. Like a museum piece, from an age of excess and ego. But it’s much more beautiful than any ready-mades that Duchamp ever “created”.

I don’t know if I agree with the “more beautiful than any [Duchamp ready-made],” but it’s certainly shinier.

Also, re: the price of oil.
