IMO : n/a

Build : 2007 by Julien Berthier – Paris in France

Quick!! Call for help! That yacht is sinking. No it isn’t. Yes, it is! Can’t you see?? Call the rescue brigade! No! it isn’t.………..this is what some people call Art (Art: the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance). This floating contraption has been made by the French Artist Julien Berthier and it’s called “Love-Love”.

Obviously “art” is a very subjective term, I wouldn’t call it art, I’d like to call it a practical joke, funny, maybe even clever but art?? No.

This is what the artist himself has to say about it : Love-love is the permanent and mobile image of a wrecked ship that has become a functional and safe leisure object.

However you wanna call it or in whatever category you wanna place it: it’s a floating anomaly, it’s strange, it’s weird and it’s making you go “WTF???” so it is well on its place right here on this site.

This is how he did it:

And personally I think the picture below is great!
