In Chris Labrooy’s Palm Springs, Porsches Park Wherever the Hell They Want

Say, how'd those get stuck up there?

Just park that thing anywhere, pal.

Usually the instructions of a carpark booth operator.

But it would also makes for a fairly good alternate title for conceptual artist Chris Labrooy’s work.

A continuation of his Auto Elasticity series, Labrooy’s newest project, 911, plops a fleet of technicolor Porsche 911 in, shall we say, unusual locations in and around Palm Springs.

Against stoic, sun-soaked, mid-century backdrops, the UK-based artist has fashioned iconic ’70s Porsches into surreal scenes. They cluster together in nets suspended in the air. They go for a swim. They fall from the heavens. Hell, they nuzzle each other. The frames are saturated, punctuated and slightly uncomfortable. But we could definitely get used to this world.
