San Projects, a highly regarded production company, has partnered with Stems Gallery to produce an awe-inspiring art installation in Dubai. Featuring the works of renowned French multidisciplinary artist, Julien Boudet, the installation includes two thought-provoking sculptures, “Explosion, 2023” and “Pressure, 2023”, which challenge visitors’ perceptions of reality.
Inspired by Boudet’s passion for car culture in Dubai, the two sculptures pay tribute to the iconic Mercedes G Wagon, the city’s most popular car. Drawing on Boudet’s passion for basketball and the iconic AMG logo, the sculptures explore the concepts of accumulation and compression, creating a giant counterfeit AMG basketball and playing with logos and bootleg culture, which is prevalent in Dubai.
The sculptures were produced locally in Dubai, adding an authentic touch to the artwork. They are in conversation with each other, creating a unique blend of art and culture. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase my sculptures in Dubai, a city that has inspired me for years,” said Boudet. “The Mercedes G Wagon is an iconic symbol of the car culture in Dubai, and I wanted to pay tribute to it with my artwork.”
Visitors to Art Dubai Mina a’Salam – Jumeirah Beach Rd are encouraged to view the installation and experience the unique blend of art, culture, and luxury cars that define the city.
