Boatel NYC | Swoon @Konbit Shelter Project & Transformazium | CP Cavafy

Les Artistes

Reclaiming, Deconstructing, Creating Waterspaces

Check In, Swim Out: A Floating Hotel as Art NYTimes

New York’s newest getaway is Boggsville Boatel and Boat-In Theater, a configuration of four refurbished pleasure boats and a houseboat, all moored around a jury-rigged floating platform.

Artist Constance Hockaday says she hopes to attract the romantic and adventurous to her floating hotel, one she describes as a post-apocalyptic adventure.

Under the auspices of Flux Factory, a Queens gallery, Boatel will be open Thursday through Saturday this summer. July is almost sold out.

“When you think about it, the water is the last remaining open public space,” said Jean Barberis, the artistic director of Flux Factory. “As artists and creative people venture more and more into the outer boroughs, there’s less and less unclaimed territory on land. But the water is still completely open.” Mr. Barberis said he sees the Boatel as part of a recent movement of artists exploring New York’s waterways, like Duke Riley, who staged a naval battle in a reflecting pool in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, and Swoon, the street artist behind the wide-ranging flotilla of paddle- and steam-powered junk rafts known as Swimming Cities.

Swoon and Her Band of ‘New York City Garbage Anarchists’ Drifts into Venice on the Adriatic AOC Green

The last time AOC checked on Swoon, she was headed for the 2008 Venice Bienniele. No longer a centerpiece of Swimming Cities, the project continues in India this summer.

Today the activist artist is working on her Konbit Shelter Project, created with the idea that a group of artists, engineers, architects, and builders could pool their individual knowledge, resources, and time to make a lasting difference in post-earthquake Haiti.

Sailing Towards Ithaca | Paul Coelho | CP Cavafy (aka Kavafis)


NymphoBrainiac at Flickr 

Rocking in the quiet waters of the Ionian Sea, my unconscious mind was electrified beyond dream state, waking me at 3am, shaking my groggy mind out of bed … guiding me over my sleeping fiancé, then pushing me like a gusty wind at my strong, straight back . . . up out of the cabin and into the night air.

Our traveling companions smiled at me, saying “We’ve been waiting for you.” Enraptured by the night, we three talked quietly, as our precious hours slipped into dawn, and then a Greek sunrise.

Unexpected Tacking

Searching for details about my journey, my writing plan changed course just now.  I experienced an wrenching, emotional life collision, stumbling headfirst into the words of an extraordinary poem: “Ithaca” by Konstantinos P. Kavafis.  

Kavafis gave new meaning to my unpredictable, eccentric life journey, the crazy course of a woman still jet-propelled into the future, refusing to abide by the rules of life stage or social conditioning.

My night belonged to him, this Greek poet, who took over my existence like a demanding but genuinely devoted lover.

The Perfect Stranger

Emotionally exhausted with our dialogue, I wrote the final words of my journal, organized the videos and drifted off into a deep sleep.

Preparing to post this morning, I was hungry for more Kavafis and found it, dropping anchor in Buenos Aires, at the digital house of Paulo Coelho, AART HILAL

Coelho greeted me:

 

… “Whoever you are, or whatever, it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on earth.” … and when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

Doubt Not
