The Punt on show

Over 5 years ago a simple small boat, a punt, based on a design from the 1930s by Edward Monk, was a winter building exercise in the harbourside workshops. We named her the Imperial Punt because all the dimensions are in inches. A simple vessel that has been a bit of a workhorse for various projects and events. For instance we use her in workshops, she was the ferry for the Floating Village with Leo Schatzl and a group at the mouth of the Traun river and appeared in the follow on exhibition in Kunstraum Goethestrasse. We were approached a few months ago by the curators of a show at the 44er Gallery in Leonding, a small city near Linz, whether we had a suitable vessel for an exhibition. So now the punt has been in two whole exhibitions, perhaps she is an art boat.
