1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupé !
The car is one of only two prototype racers developed by engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut and his team for the 1955 Carrera Panamericana. That year’s competition, though, was called off, and Mercedes abandoned motorsport entirely, all due to the infamous Le Mans tragedy that June where Pierre Levegh and his SLR catapulted into the crowd, killing the driver along with 83 spectators.
Uhlenhaut’s project was subsequently shuttered and this particular example, fit with a 297 hp inline-eight engine mated to a five-speed transmission, came into his possession. The fact that its top speed was touted to be approximately 186 mph only added to this 300 SLR’s mystique.

Known professionally as Vangelis.
Vangelis was a Greek musician and composer of Electronic, Progressive, Ambient, Jazz and Orchestral music.
He was best known for his Academy Award-winning score to Chariot of Fire (1981), as well as for composing scores to the films Blade Runner (1982), Missing (1982), Antartica (1983), The Bounty (1984), 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992), and Alexander (2004), and for the use of his music in the 1980 PBS documentary series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage by Carl Sagan.
Having had a career in music spanning over 50 years and having composed and performed more than 50 albums, Vangelis is considered to be one of the most important figures in the history of Electronic Music.

On an invitation from Ripopée,
Installation for ‘Art au Centre Genève’ Exhibition.
Art au Centre Genève takes place from the 25th November, 2021 to the 6 March, 2022, inviting you to discover a constellation of works by 20 artists, brought together by 10 exhibition curators.
The concept is simple. Each artist has a shop window at their disposal that is visible to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The 20 pieces are spread throughout the heart of Geneva and reveal the singularity and diversity of contemporary artistic creation.
This urban itinerary can be undertaken alone or with others, and free guided tours will also be organized on select dates. Keep your eyes peeled!
