How to Make a 1953 Volkswagen Beetle into a Sphere by Ichwan Noor

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 31, 2013
Art Basel Hong Kong, the inaugural edition of Basel in Asia, had a ton of sculpture and installation works throughout the fair. One of the ones we loved especially was Jakarta-based sculptor Ichwan Noor's transforming, fusing, morphing five vintage 1953 Volkswagen Beetles into these crazy installed spheres. This one was in the Mondecor Jakarta Gallery booth, and on sale for $88k.
