The NAO is a boat that carries the illusions of a crew that dreams of inhabiting a world where many others fit. Constructed of natural materials and recycled with the work of a choir of hands, the hull of the boat takes the form of a womb and the candles evoke the folds of the skin putting in constant dialogue body and ideas. Armed in the shipyard of the Workshop of Design of SUR School of Artistic Professions, the boat sails with a fixed course towards the Madrid Design Festival 2019. It is a structure made with cane and recycled textiles that will be located on the terrace of La Pecera del Círculo of Fine Arts of Madrid between the 12th and the 17th of February. Rocked by the wind of daily life, the NAO floats on the sea of Madrid, becoming a No-place that resists the attacks of the black mirror of our screens. It is, finally, a piece that raises a dialogue between builders and spectators, an invitation for those who want to get out of the routine bubble and discover that, in the universe that we navigate, we all fit on board.
On February 12, the NAO will be launched, the boat designed and manufactured by the Design Workshop of the SUR School of Artistic Professions with a meeting with its crew at the Sala María Zambrano of the Círculo de Bellas Artes and a guided tour to the intervention on the terrace of La Pecera of the Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid. Free admission until full capacity in the María Zambrano Room of the Círculo de Bellas Artes.
