Boat of Madness is a collection of various found and modified objects, video, furniture, ceramics and other paraphernalia which results in a mélange of artifacts from the enchanted and intoxicated world of homoerotic folklore. Drawing the inspiration from the works by Jean Genet, Francois Villon, Jean Cocteau and others, a fragmented assemblance is created. Significantly romanticized, refined and domesticated environment for the subjects of vagrancy and criminal subcultures. Homosexuality being an organic part of it is highlighted throughout the installation. The collection of objects is set in a staged etalage-like fashion suggesting a heterotopia of deviance and nostalgia at the same time.
