Jupiter Woods is pleased to present a solo presentation by Andrea Zucchini, showcasing a new body of work derived from the intimate experience of dwelling on Rollins Street and its neighbouring area. This project has been a means for him to relate to this hybrid, urban dumping ground and its connotations of trash, the abandoned and the relics of our lives, via connections to an inner dimension of anxiety, doubts and insecurities.

Who would have thought that by walking inner landscapes we would find MOTs, open bins, burnt scooters and a house with a leaking roof, a mouldy bathroom and a swamp in the place of a garden?

This presentation marks a significant development in Andrea’s practice, refining his inquiry into the entanglement of the inner, mental and emotional states with the outer, inhabited environment – specifically those of his own. The work begins to weave a sticky ecology of the industrial touching the organic, the physical enmeshed with the emotional, the waking reality soaked in dream imagery.

Dark waters prefer low places will inhabit Jupiter Woods as a private presentation during which Andrea will hold conversations with invited guests in the form of studio visits. On Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th Jupiter Woods opened its doors to the public.
