julien berthier: love love


‘love love’ by julien berthier, 2007 (boat, motor, resin)

‘love love’ is perhaps one of julien berthier’s more unusual sculptural installations. the floating sculpture is made
from a large sailboat that has been modified to appear as if it is capsizing. despite its battered appearance the boat
is fully functional and able to move around thanks to a built-in motor. to create the piece a 6.5 meter yacht was
cut in half and a new keel was added to allow the boat to remain upright in the sinking position. since its
construction berthier has taken the boat out on numerous trips inside harbours like canary wharf in london and
in normandy, france.
