Motor Vehicle Sundown

16th – 25th August.

Motor Vehicle Sundown is an audio piece for two in a parked car in the middle of a busy city. It is a journey through the history of our relationship to this most mythologised of objects and the dream of America with which it is so intimately bound up. You will navigate your way through rolling fields and along endless highways, gazing out of the windows at a world of your own invention.

“Framed as a simulated ride in an amusement park of the distant future that houses the very last surviving car on earth, this small, simple but hugely evocative piece operates both as an elegy and a satire. At the end you stare out of the windscreen at the long road ahead: you know that you are in 21st-century Battersea, but all you can see are the smoking ruins of the past.”
(Lyn Gardner, The Guardian)
