Basiluzzo  (Béthisy-Saint-Martin, France - 2020)  2.00 x 2.10 x 0.80 m, plastic, aluminum, bamboo, ropes, dacron.

Out of a small broken plastic dinghy, I tried to remake a smaller compact sailing canoe, sewing together all broken pieces.

Basiluzzo was tested on Saint Népomucène fountain at Wattwiller, on Rhine river (with the kind assistance of Georges Boggia and Jean-Claude Koch from the Club Nautique du Rhin de Colmar), on Loch Ness (looking for Nessie), on the sea at Diabaig Bay, West Scotland coast, and finally, exploring remote stretches of water, on a tiny un-named lochan (locally known as Lily Lochan), in the Highlands between Diabaig and Alligin Shuas.
The sculpture-boat and the video-performances were presented at Circus Artspace Inverness Creative Academy for the Waterscape exhibition.
