Artist Zoer Creates a Colour Chart in a Scrapyard

Artist Zoer Creates a Colour Chart in a Scrapyard
French artist Zoer has unveiled his latest creation, taking the colour chart we all love and recreating it in a car scrapyard. Titled ‘Solara’, the piece features 144 different wrecked cars painted in various colours in France’s oldest scrapyard in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region.


Zoer’s goal was to revive the models and draw attention to the importance of preserving automobile wreckage as a form of industrial and ecological heritage. This ties in with the installation's name ‘Solara’, referencing the name of the last car manufactured by the French manufacturer Talbot. The second reason for the name is due to its similarity to solarisation - the natural process where the sun alters the colour of materials after a long period of time - something all these cars experienced before Zoer got his hands on them. 



Each car that makes up Solara is carefully numbered with different hexagonal codes to represent each individual car’s colour in Zoer’s larger custom colour chart system. Each car is amazing to look at in its own right, but an aerial shot really shows the wonder of Zoer’s colour chart in the oldest French Scrapyard.
