The bicycle was first invented in the mid 1800s, and even if it wasn’t a great revolution for mass transportation in the beginning, it made it possible for almost anyone to move around freely and independently faster than on foot and more economically than with other transportation methods

Most of us connect the image of the bicycle to memories from the past, those of learning to balance on two wheels as a child, a great achievement. The bicycle is perhaps everyone’s first memory of freedom. And maybe it’s because of this memory that many artists have used it as a starting point for artworks, sculptures and installations. Here there are five of them.
