Come see the car and meet the artist!
Originally created to celebrate Infiniti’s 20th Anniversary and Cirque du Soleil’s 25th Anniversary and auctioned off for charity, “Ligozzi” is a fusion of the surrealistic and symbolic with mechanical elements typical of Heidi Taillefer’s style, appropriately created on an actual machine. The piece, which did not make any structural alterations to the car, represents a one-of-a-kind fusion of technology, imagination, technique, and painting.
Michael Berger Gallery brings “Ligozzi” to Pittsburgh as part of Heidi Taillefer’s exhibition of paintings and drawings Playing with Fire.
"I was very excited to be asked to participate in this project and using the G Coupe as a canvas has been an amazing challenge. With Cirque as inspiration, there was a freedom to explore unique, juxtaposing influences for the design. I'm very proud of how my design looks on the actual vehicle, and I think it's an incredible tribute to the anniversary of both Infiniti and Cirque du Soleil."
