Peter Greenaway to build racetrack tribute to Jack Kerouac book

Film director working on racetrack as vast outdoor art installation inspired by cult classic On the Road

He trained as an artist and has found inspiration in Old Master paintings in making some of British cinema’s most avant-garde films. Now director Peter Greenaway is working on perhaps his most ambitious artwork so far – an actual racetrack as a vast outdoor art installation.

It will be a tribute to Jack Kerouac’s cult classic On the Road, a story of a hedonistic road trip across America, as Greenaway seeks to re-create Kerouac’s sense of adventure for the 21st century, as well as raising questions about “the future of our roads and how we are going to use them”.
