Sail Away, TATE Modern

Date: 2013

Description: SAIL AWAY consists of many small boats made from old paper currency, tickets and maps that form a large-scale flotilla. SAIL AWAY is about the idea of dream carriers.

Material: paper currency, maps & travel tickets, paint brush, wooden skewers, knitting needles

Provenance: Tate Modern London, UK

Notes: The boats are beautiful and delicate, referencing trade and sea faring empires. In mythology boats are symbolic of the transition from the material to the spiritual world and are carriers for our dreams as well as vessels for adventures, escape and journeys.
