CARS in the unmasking of an died star.


In 1996, Frank Borst started working on a wrecked war car from Bosnia.
Frank gradually turned the car into an document work called Christine.

Cristine is currently located in Amsterdam  at Griffitie  Street Art Museum

and it became the first work of Frank’s Unmasking an  died Star project.


Frank:  The Ring of Fire within glass is the following:

  • Collect 40 wrecked/abandoned cars from several countries and different social realities like war zones, depressed economy regions, car graveyards, remote places etc.
  • Transform each car into  a  reminder of his who  history in that moment create it in a new environment througt which I connect  my idea’s  that moment.
  • Each car will have his own theme and will be completed with other typical elements of Frank’s work at glass. Glass in a  different way then Christine. These great idea’s, are one of the  interesting elements as they will be interpreting his  rhythm with layars in glass
  • Most part of the entire project will be documented, filmed for use it in video work   to give a glimpse of the background reality contest of each car.
  • Every finished work will be displayed her on this webside.


Franks used these wrecked autos as a living testament in a kind of spirit at human life. This is an archaeological exploration into modern society.


Due all the predictable logistic complications, this is going to be a very costly project.

Frank is therefore looking for Collectors,  sponsors and donors to fund this project.

Interested parties and companies are very welcome to contact Frank directly.
