Sculpture 2021 Public Art Trail

Autonomous Morris

Enjoy a temporary sculptural installation by artist Zak Ové's as part of Kensington + Chelsea Art Week's 2021 Public Art Trail.

What to expect

Standing at approximately 3-metres high, Autonomous Morris is a monumental sculpture made from deconstructed and collaged vintage car parts, welded together to produce a futuristic yet retro, cross-cultural totemic mask.

Originally commissioned for the Smithson Plaza in Mayfair London in 2018, Autonomous Morris is a motorised ‘Macco’ – a person who involves themselves in other people’s business for the purpose of gossip and posterity. Ové’s sculpture references his interest in the sculptural aspects of cars, using them to represent geographical movement, historical documentation, protection and nostalgia.

No pre-booking needed.
