EDITORIAL PROJECT

Girl Stowaway is an art catalogue of the artwork Girl Stowaway (1994) by the British contemporary artist Tacita Dean. The whole project revolves around the idea of losing and finding, representing two journeys: Dean’s one and the stowaway girl. The artist encountered herself with a mistery as she found the picture of Jean Jeannie – a girl who stowed away in a boat in 1929 – in a a market. The book has the format of a journal or a logbook, due to its relation with the sea and contains both written and visual content.
