A series of mock ‘sea bags’, reconstructed from men’s vintage suit jackets. In context placed around The Ross Tiger, the bags act as links between the Grimsby fishermen’s very different shore and sea lives, drawing on the deckhands tradition of wearing their ‘coming on board’ and ‘going ashore’ suits.
Materials used; Suit jackets; (including Burtons and Hardy Amies), eyelets. nylon cord.
techniques: unpicked, deconstructed, reconstructed, re-stitched, reclaimed.
