This work is part of an ongoing series of collaborative artworks by Ursula Frederick and Katie Hayne (UC, ANU). This work was produced after the exhibition of Upturned Toyota (2014) and traces, through a photographic and sculptural installation, the re-distribution of the same Toyota Corolla as she is gradually dismantled into parts. Part visual ethnography, the work explores the circuits of consumption and commodification associated with car cultures, including the value creation practices of car enthusiast communities. The work continues the practice-led exploration of the research question raised in earlier artworks and in Ursula Frederickâ€™s doctoral thesis: how does a car become art? It is also a specific investigation into broader questions of material culture research, such as â€˜what values to we attribute to objects and howâ€™.
