Paying tribute to the movie entitled “The Italian Job”, British artist Richard Wilson envisioned the “Hang On A Minute Lads, I’ve Got A Great Idea…” art installation, consisting of a full-size coach balancing on the roof of the De La Warr Pavilion in East Sussex, UK. According to the official project description, “the title of the work is taken from the final words in the film spoken by Michael Caine, when the coach, climbing the Italian Alps and carrying a gang of robbers and a fortune in gold, swerves off the road and teeters precariously over the edge of the mountain. With the gang at one end and the gold at the other, the film finishes with an impossible dilemma – how can they save the gold, themselves and the coach from falling over the edge?” Modern artist Richard Wilson used this dilemma as inspiration for many of his previous works, bringing the concept of “what if” into reality.
