Panamarenko

°1940, Antwerp, Belgium 

Panamarenko always finds inspiration by motion through the air above or below water. Although the content of his work is in line with that of engineer- artist Leonardo Da Vinci, there is one major difference: Panamarenko’s work is to be placed entirely in an artistic context. He develops complicated theories and makes detailed plan drawings. However, most of the time his inventions do not function and they are also very fragile and vulnerable because they are made of light materials. Within the scope of Beaufort01 he displayed the submarine Nova Zemblaya, the North Sea pedal boat and a billboard showing a picture of the flying boat Scotch Gambit.
