Anthea Hamilton: KAR-A-SUTRA (After Mario Bellini)

For Frieze projects, Anthea Hamilton paid homage to Italian architect and designer Mario Bellini by bringing to life the archival images documenting the Kar-A-Sutra, a prototype for a utopian vehicle that would pair functionality with comfort, and would create an inhabitable mobile space meant to foster human creativity, imagination and communication.

Hamilton’s adaptation of Bellini’s vehicle came complete with a resident cast of mimes, who demonstrated the variety of possible positions that one can assume when inhabiting this hybrid form of transportation, while interacting with the viewers.
