In 2008 at the Zoo Art Fair, the Wild West Hummer H3 was revealed. The model features wooden wagon wheels and it will be parked on Old Burlington Road, opposite the Royal Academy of Arts for the entire duration of the fair, so that you know where to look it up. The carmaker is exhibiting on behalf of Limoncello, one of 57 under six years old galleries, project spaces, collectives of artists, publications and curatorial groups, showcasing projects from some of the most exciting art talent in the world. The specialists have combined the off-road vehicle with wooden wheels to develop a sculpture that is a mixture of art, engineering and motoring. The new Hummer H3 is ready for action and it has a unique, iconic style that will impress a lot of people, fans or not.

Artist Matthew Harrison today unveils his latest project entitled `Hummer` at the fifth Zoo Art Fair (17-20 October) - a HUMMER H3 complete with wooden wagon wheels, the iconic installation will be parked on Old Burlington Road, opposite the Royal Academy of Arts for the duration of the fair.

Harrison is exhibiting on behalf of East London gallery, Limoncello, one of 57 under six year old galleries, project spaces, artists` collectives, curatorial groups and publications showcasing works from some of the most exciting art talent in the world.

Harrison has combined the legendary off-road vehicle with `Wild West` wooden wheels to create a sculpture that is a mixture of art, engineering and motoring. For Harrison, the crux of the `Hummer` is formed by both its `being` and its afterlife.

Corin Richards from HUMMER comments:
"Similar to HUMMER, this sculpture really is like no other. As well as being built for action, the H3 certainly has a unique, iconic style. We were thrilled to be approached by Matthew and glad to be supporting his work at the Zoo Art Fair."
