About the artwork

On the ship designed by Kabakov, he will create sails by combining drawings by children from all over the world. This time, a model of the ship will be exhibited.

The sails of the ship in this project are stitched together from drawings made by hundreds of elementary school children from different ethnic and social backgrounds in different countries to convey a message of tolerance and hope. By participating in the creation of this ship, the children will learn to respect different cultures and ways of thinking, and to appreciate their differences. The program has been held 11 times in Egypt, Italy, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, Cuba, and Russia. (From the official website of “The Ship of Torelance”)
