The exhibition also features a stunning boat, called Collective Spirit, created by Lone Twin.
The Lone Twin Boat Project is a living archive of people’s stories and lives, a 30ft vessel made from donated wooden items, and one of the major outcomes of last year’s Cultural Olympiad. From February to July 2011 the public, living in the South East, donated their wood to the project from pencil, piano and pine to the exotic zebrawood every piece had a story behind it. Donations arrived in their thousands, from the highly personal to pieces of national importance. All of these donations have now been used to build a state of-the-art seafaring yacht named Collective Spirit.
