Twin Cars: Autumn view

In 1913 Marcel Duchamp assembled the first readymade. He attached a common front wheel and fork of a bicycle to the seat of a kitchen stool and entitled it Bicycle Wheel. He also introduced the term readymade. This centennial of the first readymade inspired Martijn Swaab to assemble unusual combinations of daily objects.

The READYMADES MADE READY! project is based on a strange coming together of materials by chance. Materials which seem to be made for eachother. Even twin cars were found.

READYMADES MADE READY!
4 Bicycle Wheels; dim.: 180 x 180 x 210 cm

The 4 one wheel bicycles for kids were priced down so far, that I had to buy them. Months later I bought a table, for use as table. And one day I tried if the wheels would fit on the table. And they did. No sawing, drilling, screwing. Just a perfect fit.
