Drift: Fragile future
The Shed – Oct 29 to Dec19, 2021 New-York (US)
In Fragile Future, multidisciplinary artists DRIFT transform The Shed with sound, movement and film. Their experiential installations play on our senses and help us imagine the positive. Alternative solutions to the problems facing our planet. DRIFT’s monumental exhibition and special performance series inspire a reconnection with our planet and its natural processes, as well as an empathy for non-living objects.
Featuring a soundtrack created by ANOHNI, Fragile Future takes audiences on a journey through a series of interconnected installations. Exploring the universal desire to seek connection. The power to relinquish control when adopting change. Since the start of their careers, DRIFT founders Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta have addressed pressing environmental themes in their work. In order to encourage their audience to think differently about their connection to the Earth. The exhibition installations – multitudes of shimmering lights that cross the gallery. Like glowing seeds caught in the wind from massive concrete blocks, or Drifters. Floating magically in the air. Providing an atmosphere of hope to imagine a different world.
17,000 square feet.
On certain dates, Drifters becomes an immersive surreal performance that spans the 17,000 square foot McCourt space of The Shed. In this unique performance. Thus, a congregation of Drifters dance to the tunes in an ethereal atmosphere, in counterpoint to an ANOHNI soundtrack.
