Conserving a piece of art can be no easy feat. Light, pollutants, humidity, and a host of other factors can all negatively affect what we might traditionally consider artwork. But then there's the pieces that deliver their value outside of the museum. Such as Polestar 1.
And given that Polestar 1 is entering its final production year, and therefore destined to become a collector’s item, we’re allowing would-be owners to think a little differently with Art for Art. By the end of 2021, art collectors and enthusiasts will have been able to purchase the Polestar 1 with art, making it the only car in the world which people can use art to buy.
The Polestar 1 was designed and made with an obsessive attention to detail that has been unparalleled in the world of hybrid performance cars. It’s more than earned its place in any collection, art or vehicle.
Theodor Dalenson, a leading private art advisor, will be evaluating the submitted pieces to gauge if their worth is equivalent to the Polestar 1 price.
Polestar 1 blurs the line between vehicle and art. Between garage and gallery. And unlike other pieces, it can be exposed to the elements.
Everything we produce today has an environmental footprint. EVs are no exception. But that doesn't have to be the case. Over time we can change how cars are made. And you can influence that progress. Because what you choose to buy is what the industry becomes. To enable us all to choose the greenest path, we all need to understand the scope of that footprint.
The days of gasoline and diesel cars are numbered. Amsterdam is making this happen sooner rather than later, by 2030, all transportation in the city must be emissions free. And since unprecedented challenges and breaking with convention (especially those of the car industry) are two of our favourite things, we decided to investigate what that future may look like.
