It's there, but it's not. But it is. Benedict Radcliffe renders a Ferrari F40 in wireframe, creating a fluorescent green ghost and transforming one of the world's most functional feats of engineering into a mere apparition – an object that's at home nowhere and, in turn, at home everywhere.
Véhicule stands for the deconstruction of blind consumption. Véhicule rejects faceless content, anonymous output, and objects of fleeting significance. Véhicule represents the anti-collector. Anything that you can carry home without second thought just isn't good enough. Radcliffe's sculpture exemplifies just that – it's post-consumerist, post-form, and post-luxury.
