My Last Car, commissioned by Tipping Point, I Move, and the Warwick Arts Centre, has its final performances today through Saturday at the Warwick Arts Centre. Everyone remembers their first car; what if their present car were their last car? The show looks at the influences the motor car has had on people’s lives, and issues of sustainability.
The star is a soft-top Rover 216 broken down to its component parts. My Last Car is both a gallery installation and a performance. Information and tickets here.
