The Götheborg ship was launched in 1738 and made its first trip to China the following year.

In total there were 3 trips to China but in 1745 the ship was lost just before sailing into Gothenburg harbour.

The ship lay on the ground and stood there and much of the cargo, which consisted of tea, crockery, spices and silk, could be saved.

For many years, the wreckage was visible on the surface of the water, but eventually there were only debris on the bottom.           In 1984, a few divers went down to the wreckage and picked up the remains of the cargo.

Among other things, lots of porcelain screens.

These are sold today as souvenirs to tourists.

I have bought some of these pieces and based on these I will do something for the exhibition.


哥德堡号于1738年下水,次年首次前往中国。

共3次前往中国,但在1745年,该船在驶入哥德堡港前失联。

这艘船静置在海底,大部分的货物包括茶叶、陶器、香料和丝绸,都保存了下来。

多年来,水面上一直出现其部分残骸,来自海底的碎片。

1984年,几名潜水员下到沉船处,捡到了遗留的货物。

其中,有很多瓷器屏风。

这些东西如今被作为纪念品卖给游客。

我买了其中的一些,在它们的基础上,我创作了这系列作品。
