The Boat Untitled

Various works and actions which are part of an ongoing exploration into the watery components of the landscape: places which the inhabitants of Bergen once frequented, but which are now largely seen as belonging to industry (despite the right of anyone to occupy most of the water surrounding the city). Painted flags and occupation of the fjords are intended to encourage residents to reconsider and make use of their own right to this public space.

The maiden voyage of The Boat Untitled (alternative journey)  was a collaborative performance with Dale Rothenberg and Robert Carter. 





The maiden voyage of the boat untitled (a salvaged  fibreglass rowing boat) was a rowing trip from the east side of Store Lungegårdsvannet to the gallery of the United Sardine Factory (USF Visningsrommet) on the opening night of the exhibition Make Me Destroy Me. This journey, taken as an alternative to reaching USF over land, was carried out by three artists, united in curiosity and a romantic desire to take to the seas.
