Mobbile (1979-2016) is a work by GUSTAV METZGER (1926-2017) that has been performed for the first time in 1970. The artist drove through London with a car onto which a large transparent cube containing plants is fastened and which is directly connected to its exhaust pipe. The plants inside are gradually asphyxiated from the fumes.

Please note that the MAMAC (Musée d’Art moderne et d’Art contemporain) in Nice is currently showing a retrospective of the late GUSTAV METZGER. The exhibition entitled Remember Nature is on view until May 14, 2017.
