September screenings of D’ART The Artist, The Collector and a Goggomobil Dart as the canvas
Following this unique and intriguing project resulting in a painted art car, unveiled at our exhibition in 2017, relive the excitement and watch the project come to life with a new documentary movie created by Karl von Möller.
The iconic Goggomobil Dart car painted with distinctive painted paper darts by artist Robert Clinch created a unique objet d’art. Classic car collector Jeff Brown, son of renowned art dealer Joseph Brown, whose collection is a highlight of the National Gallery of Victoria, collaborated with Clinch to conceive the project. The paper dart has become a recognised feature throughout Robert’s hyper-real paintings and works on paper depicting urban Melbourne. No two darts on the car are the same, and narratives present themselves through the various groupings, telling a multitude of stories over the surface of the car.
The Goggomobil was named and designed by Bill Buckle in the 1960s who thought ‘Dart’ summed up the streamlined little sports car. The sense of flight and fun implied by paper darts is a perfect fit for the Dart car.
The Goggomobil – spelt G-O-G-G-O – became a household name through a memorable advertising campaign featuring Tommy Dysart.
These key figures in the history of the Dart and the realisation of the remarkable art project, feature in the movie.
