Arman produced three main categories of work under the auspices of Renault’s Research, Art and Industry department. In the first, the parts selected by Arman are carefully laid out to give the work its shape. Accumulation Renault No. 114, made up of fan blades, is symbolic in this respect.
Accumulation No. 115, in which examples of the Renault logo are superposed in seeming chaos, belongs to the second category of works. These random Accumulations do away with normal spatial references to establish their own unpredictable and disconcerting standards.
The third group of works is the most spectacular. Made up of accumulations of vehicle body parts, these works are almost sculptures – and, as reflected in Accumulation Renault No. 152, truly colossal.
