A new installation by Italian artist Nino Mustica will be unveiled at London’s Southbank Centre beside the River Thames. The artwork has been created in collaboration with Land Rover Design Director, Gerry McGovern; the new work will celebrate the fusion of art and automotive design, and will coincide with Frieze Week London.
The sculptures are said to celebrate the fusion of the two seemingly disparate disciplines of contemporary art and automotive design by juxtaposing concepts and aspects of of both practices. The work is said to be a dramatic new installation by Nino Mustica and is to debut at the iconic Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall beside the River Thames on Tuesday 14th October.
The installation is titled ‘Unstoppable Spirit’ and is comprised of two large sculptures reaching over seven metres into the London sky at London’s Southbank Centre. The artwork is the product of a new and unique collaboration between Italian artist Nino Mustica and Land Rover’s Design Director, Gerry McGovern, and is said to celebrate the fusion of art and automotive design; the two pieces explore how the worlds of art and commercial design can collide and interact.
Mustica, who is based in Milan, forged a successful career as a painter before the introduction of 3D modelling software allowed the artist to experiment with sculpture and ‘shapes of colour’. McGovern is one of the world’s leading automotive designers whose credits include having worked with Range Rover. The installation will be unveiled during Frieze Week London, and will be open to the public from 14 October.
