Nathan Coley: The Ballast Project
Library Shelf Location 18.COLE
Publication Date 2011
Description A publication designed by Studio Léon&Loes about the process behind The Ballast Project, by the British artist Nathan Coley, has appeared to complement the project. It includes the years of correspondence among the advisors and institutions it took to be able to acquire the 17th century bricks that had sailed along with VOC ships to different Dutch colonies. There are photos of the journey that the bricks made, copies of original travel documents, and photos of the ultimate artwork. This 2.5 x 15 meter wall, constructed from historic bricks, is permanently on view in the North Hall of the recently renovated Maritime Museum in Amsterdam. At the request of the Dutch Government Buildings Agency and Nathan Coley, Mothership acted as producer for The Ballast Project.
