SAIL AWAY, Solo Exhibition, 2014

Tate Modern, London, United Kingdom

SAIL AWAY was an interactive installation sited in the Turbine Hall. It consisted of a huge flotilla of small boats, made out of old money, maps and tickets that snaked through the main exhibition space in the Turbine Hall. Photos ©Jeff Leyshon & S

'SAIL AWAY' considered connections through travel, trade, mapping and personal histories . The materials used represent the unknown links we have with the past and each other, connecting us to all of the people who have handled the materials in the past. Boats are often symbolic of the transition from the material to the spiritual world, acting as carriers for our dreams and vessels for our adventures. Eight hundred people contributed by making and adding their boats to the flotilla and thousands came to see the piece. Sail Away was part of the HYPERLINK Festival, organised by Tate Collective, a group of 15-25 year olds who work with Tate, funded by The Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
