MELTING POT - 2016

In 2016 both artists managed to bring back parts of their Grandfather’s cars. For Ohiri this was achieved with the piece What Remains – A patchwork triptych made out of fragments of his Granddad’s car and for Sayed it came in the form of the car bonnet, a relic like sculpture that was taken from the car as a memento and homage to the past.

However there was still an unfinished dream to fulfil. The My Granddad’s car project started with the desire to park the cars side-by-side on UK soil. This quest was physically realised when the artists decided to each take a piece of their Grandfathers cars and have them fused together with various other hybrid metals from around the world in a foundry in Sheffield. The resulting piece is an ‘untitled’ sculpture that takes the form of steel ring, reflective of the cycles of life and flow of exsistance. The sculpture has come to represent a complex amalgamation of ideas and philosophies symbolising a shared journey and merging of personal histories that not only encapsulates the past but also presents a vision of the future.
