I went to Moderna museet (the Modern museum, duh!) in Stockholm with a friend the other day, and Gabriel Orozco´s famous Citroën DS was on display. I had to give drawing it a try, of course, which was a mindboggling experience. No matter how much I tried to get the perspective and details right, I still had the feeling I was doing it all wrong… For those of you who haven´t seen this car in real life, here´s a short video on Youtube (not mine) to give you an idea: Orozco´s La DS Cornaline.
There was a no photo policy in this exhibition, but as sketchers, we had no problems with that. A guard told off every person who tried to photograph the DS, even with their phones, but we were allowed to sit as long as we wanted to sketch it.
