‘Drive-in Landscape’ is a décor for a photo-shoot, set in a canyon landscape. Visitors are invited to drive their car into the artificial setting and have their photograph taken. The installation depicts the car frozen in action with the driver behind the steering wheel. The work embodies and comments on the constructed commercial dream of the car as object of freedom and mobility. ‘Drive-in-Landscape’ evokes the car’s promise of spectacular journeys into mountains, metropolitan centres, deserts, forests and seasides. The landscape props, camera, flashlight, the photographer, the hosts, the driver and the car together stage a situation that forms a performative act.
