  • X-ray 1990 Mini Cooper

    Guys, the following mail was received today in the forum mailbox, you may find it interesting:

    Dear Sirs,

    My name is Rachel Verghis and I am the Sales Director of a gallery in
    Mayfair London called Maddox Arts. We are currently exhibiting an
    artist called Nick Veasey who has been getting a substantial amount of
    press recently - especially as he was commissioned by the Victoria and
    Albert Museum to X-Ray the Mini on the occasion of its 50th birthday
    this year.

    I have attached a picture of this artwork which is has taken the
    artist 3 months, separately x-raying 300 of its components to
    construct the finished product - which is 98% the size of the mini
    itself! I thought this piece might be of interest to your
    organisation. The smaller version of this piece now forms part of the
    V&A's permanent collection.




    The artwork is 1800 x 3000mm long and is printed on Archival C-Type
    Diasec.

    More details on the artist's other works can be found on the gallery
    website www.maddoxarts.com and I have also attached a press release on
    the artist, some articles and the most recent BBC and German tv
    footage on the show.

      That X-Ray looks pretty effective, makes a change to having an Italian Job print on the wall.

      Here's some more MINI art, and guys, be careful what you by her indoors for christmas or you could be waking up to find you MINI like this

        Looks like it could have done with some replacement outer sills in the parts photo!

          You're right! But we'd all be complaining if they'd cut up a rust-free example!

            Rust free example? Well that's been done recently when they cut in half a low mileage MKI to put in a museum.

            Anyway surely that's a Mini Mayfair and not a Cooper?
