Resident / Longshore Drift is a collective off-site project by four of six Jupiter Woods’ (UK/Austria) founding members: Hanna Laura Kaljo, Lucy Lopez, Carolina Ongaro and Cory Scozzari. For the duration of ten days, Jupiter Woods will reside in Sorbus as a temporary resident, cultivating a project comprising a time-based exhibition and events’ programme, centred on the curators’ and visitors’ embodied presence within an installation that draws on the physical infrastructure of Jupiter Woods’ London and Vienna locations. Following a two-day installation and acquaintance period, the exhibition will open to the public on Friday 22nd April and continue to form over the weekend on the basis of a series of commissioned objects, gestures and acts by ten of the platform’s past and future collaborators, enacted by the curators and the public.

Longshore Drift refers to a geographical process that consists of the transportation of sediments along a coast at an angle to the shoreline, dependent on prevailing wind direction, swash and backwash. Considering this project as a bridge, a present moment inevitably pushing us from the past to the future, it presents a situation in which people and objects are arranged, materials are pushed back and forward: commissioned objects and instructions become placeholders for their producers, remnants of actions accumulate as material debris, while questions of care are encouraged to emerge to the forefront.

The events’ schedule and interview of Jupiter Woods can be found below.
