Pit-Stop

360 x 600 x 600 cm

Parts of two Renault Formula One racing cars, iron parts, 4 16-mm projectors, 14 electric motors

In the summer of 1984 Tinguely was commissioned by Renault to build a sculpture inside one of its car plants near Paris. The work called Pit Stop is assembled out of over 60 different engine and body parts of Renault Formula One racers. Its complex kinetic sequences recall the sudden flurry of activity triggered by a pit stop. This is the only work in which Tinguely incorporated film.
