CARS in the unmasking of an died star.

INTRO

In 1996, Frank Borst started working on a wrecked war car from Bosnia.
Frank gradually turned the car into an document work called Christine.

Cristine is currently located in Amsterdam  at Griffitie  Street Art Museum https://www.ndsm.nl/location/street-art-today/

and it became the first work of Frank’s Unmasking an  died Star project.

PROJECT

Frank:  The Ring of Fire within glass is the following:

  • Collect 40 wrecked/abandoned cars from several countries and different social realities like war zones, depressed economy regions, car graveyards, remote places etc.
  • Transform each car into  a  reminder of his who  history in that moment create it in a new environment througt which I connect  my idea’s  that moment.
  • Each car will have his own theme and will be completed with other typical elements of Frank’s work at glass. Glass in a  different way then Christine. These great idea’s, are one of the  interesting elements as they will be interpreting his  rhythm with layars in glass
  • Most part of the entire project will be documented, filmed for use it in video work   to give a glimpse of the background reality contest of each car.
  • Every finished work will be displayed her on this webside.

WHY?

Franks used these wrecked autos as a living testament in a kind of spirit at human life. This is an archaeological exploration into modern society.

SUPPORT

Due all the predictable logistic complications, this is going to be a very costly project.

Frank is therefore looking for Collectionneus of  sponsors and donors to fund this project.
