Installation 2007

The Boat

In February of 2007 Visual artist Jason Gandy built a life-sized wooden sailboat from salvaged materials from a set piece he built for a photo shoot by a South Korean fashion retailer. The set had been inspired by the film The Talented Mr. Ripley.

The boat filled a large part of the front yard and was installed to appear as though it had shipwrecked against the front of the building.

Th boat instantly became a conversation piece in the neighborhood and beyond.
