D'Art

Over a glass of red wine one evening fine artist Robert Clinch and collector, Jeff Brown postulated a fun idea, "What if we could find a Goggomobil Dart sports-car and paint Robert's signature paper darts on it?" And so the story begins.

What starts as a simple "art car" project quickly reveals itself to be a fascinating mix of art and engineering, combining car racing, automotive design and a passion for collecting art and fascinating objects. Overcoming personal loss, technical issues, and looming time constraints, Robert struggled to deliver the project in time for a major exhibition in Melbourne.
Intertwining exhaustive technical investigation and countless hours of fastidious hand-painting, the goal is to produce a truly unique objet d'art. The D'art project is an uplifting and engaging reflection of the change in our motoring history. Featuring the car's designer Bill Buckle, enduring actors Tommy ("G.O.G-G.O") Dysart and his wife Joan Brockenshire, who made it a household catchphrase, and the legacy of the Joseph Brown collection, this amusing documentary is supported by some of Australia's pre-eminent art and car professionals and collectors. Followed by 10-15 minute Q&A.
