Porsche Singapore and Mandala Club announce a new partnership to expand experiential retail landscapes for both entities, creating a new space in the exclusive private members’ club for special Porsche-themed activations.
Ben Jones, CEO and co-founder of Mandala Club said: “We are beyond excited to be working with Porsche to bring extraordinary experiences and opportunities to get close to world class art to our members, and Singapore at large. Our collaboration aligns perfectly with Mandala Club’s commitment to the arts, culture, and meaningful connections for and within our dynamic membership community. We can’t wait to bring it to life with this, our first collaboration together.
“Porsche and Mandala Club share similar values of creating unique experiences and providing a conducive space for community gathering, and it is an honour to be Mandala Club’s first-ever automotive partner. By tapping into this creative partnership, we hope to showcase the rich and vibrant culture behind the brand to the tribes at Mandala Club, while also becoming part of their highly-curated tapestry of events and experiences,” said Mr. Yannick Ott, Marketing Director Porsche Asia Pacific.
With this new experiential space, Porsche Singapore aims to give customers and fans more ways to immerse themselves in the iconic German sports car brand – in the first instance, through the medium of visual art.
Daniel Arsham’s post-apocalyptic ‘Crystal Eroded Porsche 992’ will be displayed in the experiential space to launch the partnership, in a gallery-like setting closely emulating Arsham’s own workspace.
Arsham is one of the most influential artists of our time with his brand of deconstructed futurism, and with this piece he explores his creative concept ‘fictional archaelogy‘ with a sculpture seemingly created 1,000 years from today.
The 992-generation 911 Carrera 4S art car, which made its global debut at the artist’s ”The House by Daniel Arsham” Selfridges space in London, expresses a distinct off white tone throughout the exterior, accented by eroded areas featuring quartz and pyrite crystals. These continue throughout the door, roof and hood of the sculptural vehicle.
The interior of the car has also been reworked with earth-tone stone-washed canvas to complement the aesthetic. This upholstery is dotted with Daniel Arsham marked drawings. The car is completed with an “ARSHAM 3019” license plate on the rear.”
Porsche and Mandala Club invite art enthusiasts and Porsche fans to be a part of this special showcase, and will also release an exlcusive and limited collection of merchandise as part of the exhibition.
The Crystal Eroded Porsche 992 will be displayed on the ground floor of Mandala Club starting on 6 January 2023. Further activations in this space will be announced in 2023.
