Nico Vascellari, Horse Power, JUL 07,2021 

Nico Vascellari is a visual artist, performer and musician. He took part in the XV Biennial of Lyon with the installation Horse Power, the visual selection presented here portrays some phases of the making of the video of the same name screened in this exhibition.

Produced for the XV Lyon Biennial, Horse Power documents a three-day, three-night experiment in which nine stuntmen drive cars whose front bonnets have been removed and replaced with wax sculptures of life-size animal figures. Each driver responds to a different driving manual, created by analysing the behaviour of the car's iconic animal. The chosen animals are currently, or have been in the past, the logo of choice for some of the world's leading car manufacturers.
