South African artist Gerhard Marx attached parts of classical string instruments on the removable car parts. With his enigmatic installation Vehicle Marx explores the music in inanimate objects. What does a car door sound like when it is played with a bow? At several free performances two musicians will improvise in the installation with the various unorthodox instruments, including indicators, windscreen wipers and headlights. A text-piece about a road trip by South African writer and poet Toast Coetzer is heard intermiently throughout the installation and performance.
