Sail Away

Next Work →


SAIL AWAY consists of many small boats made from old paper currency, tickets and maps that form a large-scale flotilla.

It is about the idea of dream carriers. 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. 'Sail Away' is shown here as part of the Hyperlink Festival at TATE Modern, April 2013.

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

Provenance: Tate Modern London, UK
