Ragnar Kjartansson’s S.S. Hangover with a Brass Sextet on Board Loops Around the Harlem Meer In Central Park

Icelandic conceptual artist Ragnar Kjartansson's incredible performance sculpture is currently making scheduled loops around the Harlem Meer in Central Park. The S.S. Hangover, a haphazard hybrid of Greek, Icelandic and Venetian ship design, was originally a 1934 wooden fishing boat from Reykjavík that the artist transformed into a remake of a theatrical boat that appeared on dry land in a swanky party scene in the film Remember Last Night? (1935). Sailing under the flag of a winged fat Pegasus–one that Kjartansson regards as a symbol for the artist struggling to reach sublime heights. Instrumentals are provided by the Grammy-nominated Metropolis Ensemble and led by conductor Andrew Cyr. You can catch the S.S. Hangover on Fridays and Saturdays through June 20, 2015 on the East side of the park near Lennox Avenue in New York.
