Marco Miehling: The Boatswain’s Reclaim

31 Mar–2 Apr 2018

Marco Miehling returns to YSP with his new project The Boatswain’s Reclaim, which has developed following his residency in 2017.

Installed in the Boathouse, the work references the building’s true function and the imaginary return of the Boatswain, the person who traditionally would have maintained the boats on the Estate.

Referencing the structure and materials of the Boathouse, rope and knot fastenings become the primary fixing methods for the sculptures. By choosing functionality over aesthetics, Miehling pays tribute to the history of the building and visitors are invited into the space for a moment of contemplation.
