Ernest Daetwyler: The Boat Project / everythingwillbefine
MMA Artist Garden installation | 2018 – 2020

Canadian artist Ernest Daetwyler will transform pieces of driftwood into a boat form, embedded with a steelcut text message, creating an environment for both active engagement and reflection. The surreal and poetic installation is intended to symbolize a time of change, challenges, and the existential fluctuations that life can present. <more>
