Installation view, Lichtwark revisited, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg, Germany

The installation consists of a boat which is fixed to a rocker. The boat is old and damaged. It swings back and forth unnaturally slowly and thus seems alienated - as if it was remote- controlled. The movement is lifeless. Instead of swinging like a pendulum, the boat is floating.
