The Harbour Of My Heart Lies Empty

On September 27, 2008 several artists will participate in an international art happening at CorkStop Studios. This happening coincides with our 'Holonic Art Exhibition' - the first of it's kind, where artit's collaborative work is on display. The happening 'The Harbour Of My Heart Lies Empty' was conceived by Danish artist and collaborator Henrik Sandner. Here is his description of the event:

On September 27, 2008 artists from all over the world will take part in this one-day art event. On this date they will launch small ships or boats in various designs and materials into the sea.

As a documentation of the event, pictures will be taken and uploaded to a website ( which can be seen from October 1.

This gesture is to be seen as a commemoration of all sorrow and bereavement in the world of today.

”No matter whether it is war, natural disaster, or lack of love that causes this sense of disertion and sadness, it is universal and does not discriminate; therefore people around the world are united by this feeling.” –says Henrik Sandner (Denmark) who took the initiative to this event.

No one has ownership to this project. It is neither sponsored by companies nor cultural institutions. There are only artists who operates independently only united in creating this project.

And as such, the project can be compared to the launched boats which are taken by the waves and thrown about by the mercy of the sea.
