It was here that Noor presented the Beetle box, his first work in the Volkswagen Beetle series, which featured the car crushed into a cube.
The Beetle Sphere, one of his most iconic pieces, takes the vehicle’s iconic curves to the extreme.
Responding to the car’s loaded political history and signature design, the work features the 20th century design classic warped into a sphere comprised of authentic and fabricated components.
“The idea emerged from a personal perception towards objects that are products of a ‘transport culture’, which induces a hint or signs of spiritual emotion,” he said.
“To behold a vehicle is to have a ‘magical’ identity. Sculpture represent the interaction between humans and the object realm, with strong spiritual tension that affects the subconscious, and that yields a new ‘animistic’ attitude.”
