Submarine, Panamarenko

As well as creating poetical installations, Panamarenko also makes prints of his structures. This print is a study of the submarine Panama, in which Panamarenko planned to sail to Nova Zembla.

From the Print Cabinet's collection

Submarine is a print that Panamarenko made, based on his monumental poetical work Panama from 1996. He planned to sail from Antwerp’s Linkeroever to Nova Zembla in this steel vessel.

Panamarenko (born 1940) designs all kinds of poetical structures resembling aircraft, flying saucers, automobiles and submarines, often of monumental size. These are not just artistic experiments, but technical installations too.
