26 Gasoline Stations

Jan Freuchen - 26 Gasoline Stations

"These twenty-six different images of gasoline stations are collected from the internet. All of the gas stations have been tilted by extreme weather. Much like Ed Ruscha’s 1963 piece by the same name, many of the pictures have been taken through a rolled-down window in a car – but here by disaster tourists, or people fleeing from their homes. The T-structure of the gasoline stations represents an archetypical modernist invention. This is in contrast to the primitive shelter it forms when knocked over. The images reveal a feedback loop: the damaging winds are partially fuelled by the product the buildings were built to sell." (txt: limerickcitygallery)
