Formula One

Angela Palmer was given unprecedented access to the highly secretive world of Formula One engineering to realise the extraordinary collection of sculptures for her solo show Adrenalin at The Fine Art Society in London (images below). In collaboration with Renault Sport F1, the artist deconstructed the world’s most successful F1 engine, the RS27, with the help of their pioneering engineers at their F1 laboratories in Paris. She also collaborated with Pink Floyd's Nick Mason to create a sound and light installation (see exhibition catalogue above for more details).
