Time Lapse Custom Vintage Racing Motorcycle by Sebastian Errazuriz

(4 years ago)
"Live fast, die young": Time Lapse Custom Vintage Racing Motorcycle by Sebastian Errazuriz is a fully restored vintage Norton racer, customized in steel and aluminum, and at the same time, "a fetish object stripped down to its sculptural framework ... a masculine symbol of power and freedom ... on the boundary of fragility and fatality." Unforgettably entombed in a glass-topped case inset in the gas tank, a colourful taxidermied bird, "making death a core element." Built by NYC Norton, with part of the profits going to at-risk-youth-oriented non-profit, Worth Motorcycle Company. On display via Salon 94 at the upcoming Art Basel, Miami Beach, Dec. 1-8. Errazuriz is a young Chilean artist and designer, raised and trained around the world, currently based in New York and Santiago.
