De Walvisch


by Zatorski + Zatorski

A Cultureship project



Interested in the symbolism of ship as representative of discovery, new life, adventure and the unknown voyage, Zatorski + Zatorski decided to create a “living artwork” of De Walvisch (The Whale): a unique and inspiring environment of a 19thCentury sailing Klipper that would act as catalyst for cultural exchange. The artists document their life aboard ship and use the space to stage artworks and performances. They also run The Salon from the ship, bringing together people from different disciplines to share ideas, perform, listen and embark on new creative journeys.
