Sitting a little way off, beyond the trees, so as to remain in the full ambit. 

Rindon Johnson and Jordan Loeppky-Kolesnik

Sitting a little way off, beyond the trees, so as to remain in the full ambit. is a newly-commissioned, site-specific collaborative project consisting of a 24/7 online video livestream that chronicles several sculptural interventions as they engage with the wetlands near Saugerties, NY as a site of regenerative growth and interspecies interaction. 

Featuring four large, chrome-plated, non-figurative steel sculptures that subtly alter the flow of the water in which they are situated, Sitting a little way off, beyond the trees, so as to remain in the full ambit. harnesses wetland processes such as stagnation and leaching. The design of these works yields new pathways for water retention and soil collection, and provides niches for flora and fauna. The sculptures will be sited for five years, during which they will gradually merge into the environment. This project materializes the artists’ interest in what it means to make something whose touch on the land could ultimately be considered quasi-regenerative and barely traceable.

Sitting a little way off, beyond the trees, so as to remain in the full ambit. will be included in the fifth edition of UPSTATE ART WEEKEND, July 18—21, 2024, which will see over 140 organizations celebrating art and culture in the Catskill Mountains and Hudson Valley region. Join the artists and Black Cube for an in-person walkthrough of the project on Thursday, July 18 from 3:00 p.m.—4:30 p.m. RSVP required, as capacity is limited; registration link forthcoming.
