Still Life with Stone and Car, by American artist Jimmie Durham.

Still Life with Stone and Car by American artist Jimmie Durham. This work was created in 2004 by dropping a two-ton boulder onto a 1999 Ford Festiva that was parked on the Opera House forecourt. Durham describes the work by saying:

“This piece is concerned with monuments and monumentality, but also with nature; that implacable hard stuff.”

It’s now located in the middle of a roundabout on Hickson Road in Walsh Bay, just on the other side of the Harbour Bridge from Circular Quay. The work is part of the Sydney Art Walk that hugs the shoreline from Circular Quay all the way to Darling Harbour.
