Hogshead 733

        ALL WORKS       

Hogshead 733 is an artistic project made by Maxime Berthou and Mark Požlep. The process follows the restoration and decontamination of a typical 1941 wooden fishing boat, her last 733 miles sailing journey and final transformation of her hull, soaked with sea, salt, wind and adventures into two Hogshead whisky barrels. Every specially chosen stage gives a possibility to research the poetics of a specific manual labor expertise : boat carpentry, sailing, barrel making and whisky production. Through the everlasting human wish for new discoveries, experiences and achievements, entangled with the power and beauty of nature, we are going to embark on a unique adventure from the shipyard in Trebeurden, France to the Bunnahabhain distillery in Islay, Scotland.

Project is still in development
