Sculptor Antoine DUFILHO will launch a major sculpture in the Formula 1 Grand Prix »PACA economic and political letter.


Honor for one seat 90s.

Representing the motives of racing is the essence of Antoine Dufilho’s approach to this creation. In this sculpture, the artist will present his interpretation of the car race, paying homage to one of the most crowded seats in Form 1. Coming out of his comfort zone, he will deliver a treatment that has never been done and finished. It will play in contrast: the fuselage will be painted black with a perforated base, white. The fins and wheels will be in a polished stainless steel glass.

This large collection will replace solid and vacuum. The strength of the movement will be provided by the reflection of the black or white lacquered paint. Immobile, the car will appear to be in motion and will give the viewer an unparalleled view, always different depending on the stage of observation. The visual effect will be very important because the artist will work on the image element.

Despite the heavy weight of this statue (1 ton 2), a sense of simplicity will arise from the work provided by the position and orientation of the metal plates, different for each of them. “For this project, I appealed to my childhood memories and the Formula 1 cars that made me dream. Even though the statue is more of a model of style that could be run by Senna or Prost than an honest representation, it shows my love for this golden age of motor sport. It is an honor for these famous drivers and for the teams that enhanced my dreams as a young boy. explains Antoine Dufilho.
