Art gallery in the Atlantic – level 3

Art gallery in the Atlantic – level 3

15-04-2016 15:00

Diving more than 90 feet (27 metres) below the Atlantic Ocean, you'll find this not-so-average art gallery. This underwater exhibition has been set up in the world's second largest artificial reef off the Florida coast. Divers installed a dozen 3 by 4.5 photo illustrations on the deck of the sunken ship General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, which rests at Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary about 7 miles south of Key West.

The once transport ship is now temporary home to the artwork of Australian art photographer Andreas Franke. Each piece is covered in Plexiglas, mounted in stainless steel frames and sealed with silicone to prevent the paintings from becoming waterlogged.

Marine life will settle on the paintings during the 4 months that they'll be underwater, and giving them their final touch by their inspiration, the sea itself.

Difficult words: artificial (made by people), temporary (only for some time), mount (to put up), seal (to close securely), silicone (a material that chemicals and temperatures cannot affect very much), settle (to rest).
