FINE ART ON WATER
CRN and Riva, two luxury yachting brands of the Ferretti Group, will play a central role in an installation by Berlin-based artist Christian Jankowski, at this year’s Frieze Art Fair 2011. Curated by Sarah McCrory, The Finest Art on Water will be part of Frieze Projects, a series of special commissions which offer viewpoints that will elicit a shift in the viewer’s perception as they move through the fair. Frieze Art Fair: 13–16 October 2011; Frieze Art Fair takes place every October in Regent’s Park, London. The fair showcases new and established artists to an international audience.
Jankowski has collaborated with yacht builders CRN, featuring the project of a 68 meter vessel, whose exteriors and interiors lines are designed by the designers of Officina Italiana Design, and will be produced by the shipyard in the contemporary artwork. The Aquariva Cento, a limited edition boat, also designed by Officina Italiana Design, that is available as a tender for CRN superyachts and embodies the modern Riva style and elegance, will be sculpturally displayed as part of the installation, simultaneously challenging an art audience and yacht lovers.
CRN specializes in the construction of fully customised mega yachts in steel and aluminum from 44 to 85 meters and has recently launched a range of custom pleasure ships ‘Dislopen’, combining the aesthetics of open boats with the comfort of displacement vessels.
