Aboriginal Art Motorcycle

Aboriginal Art Directory | 05.09.07

Eliasson’s “climate car” is the 17th entry in the BMW Art Car Collection, which was founded in 1975 and ranges from Robert Rauschenberg’s BMW 635 CSi car, covered with images of classic art and swamp grass, to the world’s first “Aboriginal Art Motorcycle,” painted by Biggibilla Gummaroi on a BMW K1200 RS sportsbike. Jenny Holzer created a suite of “art car maxims” in 1999 [see The Art Car at Le Mans, Jan. 19, 2006]. Eliasson’s BMW is to be housed with the rest of the racers in the BMW Museum in Munich.
