50 blood-red sailboats will be installed on the Venice waterfront to remind visitors to the city of the threat of rising sea levels, it has been announced.

Due to be installed in May to time with the opening of the 58th Venice Biennale, the installation by artist Melissa McGill will include around 50 traditional Italian vela al terzo sailboats. The piece, which is not part of the official biennial programme, is titled Red Regatta. Each sailboat will be fitted with a unique red sail, hand-painted by the artist in her studio.

In an interview with ArtNews, McGill said the piece aims to remind visitors of the city’s troubled relationship with the water that surrounds it: ‘It represents all that red can reference in a city like Venice . . . red has that urgency,’ she said. ‘[Venetians] travel by water, but it’s being taken by water. I have personally seen this city change in my lifetime dramatically.’

While the piece references a regatta in its title, McGill explains that the event will not be a competitive one: ‘It’s more of a presentation. Basically, we are presenting these regattas as a way to bring together all these local boat owners with these beautiful traditional boats.’

The project is a collaborative one, involving the Magazzino Italian Art Foundation as well as over 250 Venetians, including sailors, artisans and art students.

Red Regatta will be on display from May through November and will culminate in four regatta events: two in May and one in June and September respectively.

麦吉尔在接受《艺术新闻》采访时说,这篇文章的目的是提醒游客们,这座城市与周围的水之间存在着麻烦的关系:“它代表了在威尼斯这样的城市里红色所能引用的一切。”..。“瑞德有这种紧迫感,”她说。'[威尼斯人]乘水旅行,但它是被水带走的。在我的一生中,我亲眼目睹了这座城市发生的巨大变化。“虽然这篇文章在标题中提到了一次赛舟会,但麦吉尔解释说,这场比赛将不会是一场有竞争力的比赛:‘它更像是一场演讲。’基本上,我们将这些帆船作为一种把所有这些本地船主和这些美丽的传统船结合在一起的方式。“这个项目是一个合作项目,涉及意大利的艺术基金会以及超过250名威尼斯人,包括水手、工匠和艺术生。红色赛舟会将于5月至11月举行,并将在四个赛舟会活动中达到高潮:分别在5月和6月和9月举行两次。
