Appreciation towards Gerry Judah for providing the following description:

艺术家Gerry Judah最近接受保时捷委托,在英格兰西苏塞克斯郡的速度节为保时捷50周年立了一座雕塑,三辆经典保时捷开向长空,留下白色的尾迹。


Gerry Judah认为在速度节,人们关注的不仅仅是美丽的汽车,还有汽车的速度,因此这个雕塑也要将汽车的速度展现出来,高立于空中的汽车十分闪耀而引人注目。整个雕塑和保时捷汽车的设计理念一样:呈现出轻巧,简单,纯净,内涵。


Artist and designer Gerry Judah has created a gravity-defying sculpture that holds three iconic Porsche sports cars 35 metres high in the sky. The sculpture was the centrepiece at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England.

Judah was commissioned by Porsche GB to create the sculpture as a celebration of 50 years of the Porsche 911.

The sculpture has three futuristic white, steel ‘arrows’ that race upwards, each with an example of the 911 at its apex. The models incorporated in the sculpture are: the 1963 Original 911; the 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7; and the 2013 911.

Weighing over 22 tonnes, each leg of the sculpture is a monocoque made of steel plate welded together with no internal structure. It balances on points at the base that are extremely narrow. The sculpture is finished in a clean white coating, giving it an elegant simplicity.

Gerry Judah said: “I had to create a sculpture that personifies the energy and excitement not only of these beautiful cars but also the Festival of Speed. The 911 is a fantastic shape that can’t be deconstructed or embellished, so in this context, the sculpture had to provide the right platform for the car to soar up and shine in the sky.”

“The concept was that each car is shooting into the sky, supporting one another, racing each other, captured in a perfect moment. Like the cars it displays, the sculpture is superbly engineered, lightweight and reflective of the Porsche 911 itself: simple, pure and built for the job.”
