Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This ship was sunk and then salvaged to be reborn as an object of art. Photographed in a vertical position, the ship is transformed into more than a ship a ship. A portrait of a sinking? A symbol of decay? Or a comment on the approaching inevitable end of civilisation? It's all in the eyes of the beholder.

Artist Profile

Born: 1965

Hometown: Stockholm

Based in: Stockholm

Born and bred in Stockholm, Nils Lagergren has always been into creating art, and he had his firsts public exhibition in 2010. The "Vessels" art project is all about ships and shipwrecks and has been a part of his life ever since the early 1990s. In one part of this project - the "Ghost Fleet" project - Lagergren uses Nature as co-artist. He sinks the ships he builds and Nature transforms them to shipwrecks before they are salvaged (after 2-4 years) and reborn as sculptures and objects of art. His art piece"Ghost Liner" was one of the main attractions at the 2020 edition of the annual "Spring salon" ("Vårsalongen") at Liljevalchs Art Gallery in Stockholm - Sweden's largest jury-selected art show.
