A two-part work of speculative archaeology exploring car culture, consumerism, extinction and the after-life of objects.

The ingenuity of car engineering and design is honoured in four porcelain casts of found plastic car components. The social, industrial and ritual phenomenon of the motor car is examined in a documentary created by artificial intelligence in the post-human future. The video satirises British Museum director Neil MacGregor’s deeply earnest BBC radio series, A History of the World in 100 Objects, particularly the Ain Sakhri Lovers episode, in which a complex narrative of conjugal love is interpreted from a carved pebble.

Tasmanian artist Gabrielle Rish’s main medium is humour, in a practice that takes on the big issues of life, death and the things humans make.
