“Simon Starling’s process for the work “Flaga” began in Turin, Italy in 2002, where  a 1974  Fiat 126 that he acquired was built and developed. He drove the car to a contemporary Fiat factory in Bielsku-Biala, Poland, the home of Polski Fiat. Upon arrival, Starling replaced the hood, trunk, and doors with white parts that had been manufactured at the Polish factory. He returned to Turin, stripped the car and mounted the chassis to the wall, in  a representative display of the Polish flag.  The resulting piece “Flaga (1972—2002)” represents a social commentary on the shifting discourse between East and West over the last forty years.”
