V is a project under construction and is part of JocJonJosch's series of Investigations into Collaboration. V takes the form of a round boat with three oars, symbolic of the collective’s dynamic, in which Joschi, Jonathan and Joc wrestle towards a destination. There is a sense that each time one member attempts to move forward his movement and the direction in which he would like to travel is countered by the action of the other two. It is an exhausting exercise and the collaborators often feel as if they are going nowhere, that they are turning in circles.
The boat is a useable sculpture, that is to say it is a boat built to be rowed on water. It’s significance however, is not in any specific journey that we take or plan to take in the boat but instead in the ambiguous and challenging journey that it suggests.
Project is supported by:
JocJonJosch is the Anglo-Swiss-Slovakian collective of Joc Marchington, Jonathan Brantschen and Joschi Herczeg. The collective is based in both London and Switzerland.
