In Search of the Miraculous


Sunset in Oostende, Belgium. 16 aug 2001
Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader was lost at sea while attempting a single-handed west-east crossing of the Atlantic in a small vessel. The passage was part of a performance titled "In Search of the Miraculous". Radio contact broke off three weeks into the voyage, and Ader was presumed lost at sea. The boat was found after 10 months, floating partially submerged 150 miles West-Southwest of the coast of Ireland. His body was never found. The boat, after being recovered by the Spanish fishing vessel that found it, was taken to Coruña. The boat was later stolen by thugs with criminal minds.
