Ourang Medan

Aerosol on shipping detritus94 x 123 cm

The Ourang Medan is an urban legend, a ghost ship whose crew was rumoured to have died in mysterious circumstances. Tales of ghost ships exemplify the dark side of our relationship with the sea, a mysterious place, an environment which is hostile to land dwelling beings. This work is created using shipping detritus and examines the mythology surrounding ghost ships and the way we relate to the dangers found in the dark depths of the ocean.
