Stolen Crashed Citroën Xsara Picasso


On the side of the Citroen Xsara Picasso, we see Picasso’s autograph, as if it were one of his artworks. What happens if the car crashes? Would it become a visualisation of a damaged artwork? What if the ‘’artwork’’ gets stolen and then crashes? These photos are of stolen Citroen Xsara Picassos that were in joyriding accidents. The cars have been deformed in such a way that they bear resemblance to Cubist shapes. Then, the perpetrators are portrayed in a cubist manner as well.
