The Charming of Beautiful Car!

Installation 2006, altered bump and go toy cars, dimensions variable.

The title, from the packaging of a pound shop toy car is almost the antithesis of the resulting installation. Once the 'charming' has been systematically removed (or perhaps achieved), they become reverse love bugs, frantically jolting about searching for if they only knew what. This toy lobotomising becomes cruel - like pulling the limbs from a daddy long legs, and the viewer can only watch the resulting farce, perhaps wondering what demons lurk inside their own children's toys.
