Presentation by RVB Books:
" The book Damaged Inc. is the result of a long-term project that mixes screen shots, photographs and sculptures reproduction. During several years, from race tracks to parking lots or bare farm fields - French artist David de Beyter followed the « Big Bangers » in the north of Europe.
They describe themselves as a community practicing car crashing as a lifestyle. They do it for the sake of it and their motto lies in the fact of destroying popular cars using violent shocks, into radical compressions. The car wrecks resulting from this esthetic of destruction are called « auto-sculptures ».
Damaged Inc., printed in black & white, with double-pages of collages recreating the cars fragment by fragment, and the slogans that illustrate the philosophy of the members and enthusiasts of this practice, is directly inspired by the esthetics of the original zines produced by the « Big Bangers ». "
