DRIVE IN: CAR CULTURE
CURATED BY CORTNEY LANE STELL

Kantor’s piece, Infinity Shrimp, draws inspiration from the Red Bull promotional car and artist Yayoi Kusama, whose infinity rooms are immersive mirrored-room installations employing a polka dot pattern. Infinity Shrimp uses the common vernacular of the traveling saleswoman, but takes this further by creating an absurd immersive installation to promote and sell Beaded Shrimp accessories. Here, Kantor’s Nissan Versa becomes a mobile showroom where the salesperson (aka the artist) is free to move and hustle to the next sale or opportunity.
