Aarhus – Aros (Low Key)

Located in the Aros museum, this art installation is by the Norwegian artist Dolk, and initially visitors were allowed to scratch whatever they wanted into the used Lamborghini. The notes by the piece said that “it creates a contrast between this transgressive act and the notion of a quiet scene”.

I must admit that this artistic brilliance went straight over my head, it just looked like an easy way to get into the international media. Which was a success, as the exhibit was featured in the Daily Mail, so if art is defined as creating a talking point, then the artist should be pleased. But since I’m neither interested in cars or vandalising them (and visitors are no longer allowed to scratch things into the car anyway) the whole work rather passed me by in terms of its intended message.
