By the very history of this small Caribbean island, the activity of building boats has its roots in the confluence of knowledge and memories from different origins, from the indigenous people, the Kalinago, from Scotland, from Africa, from the creolisation of many, handed down and improved in collaborative work units such as workshops.
Imagining, designing, building, and launching a boat is also ‘architectural’ work, understood as the ability to transform the visions, plans, and examples born from the knowledge and skills of previous generations into new objects, solid and real, capable of facing the depths and uncertainties of the sea.
A ‘Crew’ will present together this lively performance in installation and short videos.
