The Nissan Art Project

The 1998/9 Nissan Art Project, one of the largest visual arts sponsorships in Ireland, was awarded to the Irish sculptor Dorothy Cross. The project involves the creation of a 'Ghost Ship' from a decommissioned lightship, which will be anchored in Scotsmans Bay, off the East Pier in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin. The Ghost Ship will be covered in luminous paint and, at nightfall, illuminated to glow and fade, evoking the poignancy of the disappeared lightships and the artist’s childhood memories, linked to her fathers’s love of the sea.
