  • About

    Shaun Gladwell’s Maddest Maximus narrative takes an unexpected turn in this work, Interceptor deluge sequence 2015. Here, the leather clad figure subjects himself and his vehicle, a 1:1 replica of the souped-up Interceptor from the Mad Max films, to an ablution in a car wash.

    This work was originally shown in a monitor in the back of an airplane chair, like a surreal form of inflight entertainment, in Gladwell’s The lacrima chair installation at Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation.
