Fucked Up in a Bad Way

12 Nov - 3 Dec 2016
PV 11 Nov 6-9pm

Jupiter Woods would like to extend an invitation to ‘Fucked Up in a Bad Way’, an exhibition by Finnish artist-run-space and collective Sorbus. This show marks the second phase of an international exchange, following Jupiter Woods' project 'Longshore drift' at Sorbus, Helsinki, in April 2016.

SAKARI: I wonder how the beer can be so cheap here?
HENNA: I know! And 6 € entrance! How can this be profitable? I wonder how much the band gets paid.
TUOMO: You know what, maybe they're not doing this for money. I have a feeling they have other interests in this. Like, if you listen closely, you can hear that the lyrics are actually opposing the monetary power structures – and power structures in general. I feel like the people here are fighting for a better world – just like us(!) That they are fighting for a world that is actually based on ---- equality. You don’t need money for that! Fuck money!
HENNA (doesn't hear what Tuomo is saying): Fuck yeah! (taking sips of her beer eagerly)
TUOMO (continues full of excitement): And what have I done to deserve the privilege to my high standard of living? I don't want to live off other people's suffering. These people here actually seem to be free, they are neither oppressed nor oppressors… They have their own community! No one is above anyone else.
It seems like they are outlining some kind of alternative and communal life style, where people come first. They refuse to be part of consumer society. Or to be enslaved by providing labour for the humiliating machinery.
And... We should also refuse to be a part of it! We should aim to destroy the existing systematic structures of exploitation, oppression and repression. We should fight the global corporation model thru our actions, provide an alternative for the ….model..multinatio.. anal...Stubb.. hallintar. . Coca cola.. Fanta....institution… I'm going to refuse to be a part of the system that favors economic growth over well-being of humans and nature!!!!! Working for a just distribution of the fruits of the earth and human labor is not mere philanthropy. It is a moral obligation!

Sorbus collective is formed by artists Otto Byström, Henna Hyvärinen, Jonna Karanka, Sakari Tervo and Tuomo Tuovinen who also run Sorbus art space in Helsinki, operating since 2013. The collective’s recent work has been showed at SIC gallery in Helsinki, Antwerp Art Weekend 2016, Manifesta 11 in Zürich and KASKL in Berlin. www.sorbus.fi 

This project is kindly supported by Arts Council England, Frame Contemporary Art Finland, The Arts Promotion Centre Finland and Finnair.

The exhibition will remain open 12 Nov - 3 Dec 2016, Saturdays 12-6pm and by appointment. Please email info@jupiterwoods.com to arrange a time to view the show.

When we came close to conquering Mount Everest all by ourself, we couldn’t shake off the feeling that someone else was climbing with us. But we were alone, having left our team far behind. We were hallucinating. We even broke off a piece of cake and offered it to our invisible climbing partner.

Jupiter Woods is please to invite you to 'we felt the presence of someone else', a performance event composed by Leah Clements, following a series of three workshops led by Clements in August this year. 

Please note: the entrance to the gallery will be through the back gate, by the garden. 
The duration of the performance is approximately 20 minutes.

This project is kindly supported by Arts Council England.
