JocJonJosch: Eddy

JocJonJosch are three individual artists who work together as a collective to explore human relationships and the impact of this on each of them.

Eddy continues JocJonJosch’s investigations into collaboration. The round boat with three oars is symbolic of the collective’s dynamic, in which Joc, Jonathan and Joschi wrestle towards a destination. There is a sense that each time one would attempt to move forward, his movement would be countered by the action of the other two, leaving them literally turning in circles.

Although the boat can be rowed, its position in YSP’s landlocked historic Boat House renders its functionality ambiguous, further emphasising the collective’s struggle to start their journey.

The boat was built in collaboration with the Boat Building Academy in Lyme Regis.
