Mascaró’s exhibition of boats is made from rusted iron and oxidized bronze, with an 18 meter life-size ship out at the front entrance and 26 boats in different sizes taking up the indoor gallery space. The exhibition will also include a selection of his drawings, models, and interviews that demonstrate the artist’s process of creation. As a tribute to the UAE’s ancestry of sailing, sea trade and maritime antiquity, Departure will also present traditional Emirati poetry and imagery about the sea, where excerpts will provide insight into the sailors’ emotions of traveling, the longing, reuniting, and the mystery of the unknown out at sea, to his community back home.

You can see Departure at Warehouse421 until September 4, 2016.
