The diving (2001)

Installation took place in the course of “Art Boat” Festival (Chelsey, New-York).
It happened so, that the boat was lifted from the Hudson floor. She was cleaned but kept traces of time. Then the boat was used for concerts and exhibition presentations.
This installation was aimed for this boat’s hold.
The green fabric was attached over the whole hold, and highlighted, to make the illusion of the sea. One standing down felt himself in the space filled with sea-water. Through the “windows” cut in the fabric the visitor could emerge from the sea climbing up the chair. Those who left upstairs watched heads appeared trough the green surface with the white hands attached. If one put his head under the fabrics as under the water heshe discovered himherself surrounded by many hands.
