A model of the famous trading ship 'Cutty Sark,' evocative of nostalgia and wanderlust, was photographed in a temporary interior setting and serves as the anchor of this installation, which appropriates and re-coordinates the elements of the model vessel.
The work was realized for the exhibition 'Metro Poles - Art in Action,' Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning, Queens, New York
