The artist and performer will be meeting the public for the national preview of his latest video work, produced for the 2019 Lyon Biennale.

Horse Power documents an experiment lasting three days and three nights in which nine stuntmen drive cars with the bonnet removed and replaced by life-size wax sculptures of animals. Each driver follows a different driving manual, created by analysing the behavioural patterns of the animal carried on the car.

The animals chosen are currently, or have been in the past, the logos chosen by some of the leading international car manufacturers.
