Description

The first floating sculpture park in the world, exhibiting the best artists.

 

ART SELECTION

By BLUE BARCELONA with MARLBOROUGH GALLERY.

A series of sculptures by artists who represent the global art scene, installed in the sea and viewable from the shore.

Introducing Abu Dhabi as a magnet for the best art, an exhibition under the sun without barriers, on the sea, creating a new horizon for the future.

ITINERANT LOCATIONS

Some cities are proud of their parks and sculptures, others of temporary sculpture exhibits in public spaces, but the floating Nomad gardens are different from all of these examples due to their distinct singularities that reflect the character of Abu Dhabi. The floating Nomad gardens plan to complete a culture, as a floating entity, capable of traveling between geographies and civilizations.

LANDSCAPE STRATEGIES

On the one hand comfortably visible, on the other begging the visitor to approach them by boat, representing the explorer’s desire to investigate the great beyond, the mystery of exploring the unknown, the more spiritual part of well-being and culture.

The two, culture and the sea, united in a natural way in the place where they were born.

FLEXIBLE CONFIGURATION OF THE LANDSCAPE

The location and configuration are variable: the sculptures can be transported by sea to various strategic locations in the city, creating a new experience each time.

The quantity of pixels (platforms) can be chosen according to the desired impact.
