Swift as a Shadow is included in Forms of Navigation: Cabotage, a public collaborative programme between Bulegoa z/b and fluent. The programme is part of Bertatik Bertara/Tan Cerca/So Close 2020, which is due to be staged between Bilbao and Santander, stopping at different points on the Cantabrian coast.
SWIFT AS A SHADOW
Part of their ongoing research on the littoral space and marine narratives, Fernando García-Dory and Georgina Hill compose a dialogue, taking the sea as a lens for an INLAND analysis, refracting industrial and local interests, as they are shaped by trends in value-making. During the session, different lines of enquiry will be followed and cases displayed, as interweaving threads aiming to suture the rocky coast’s ever-licked cut, and bring their native regions of Asturias and Cornwall closer together. What if the Cantabrian Sea and the Bay of Biscay shared a name: shallow waters of the same basin, re-inventing beliefs and value, an impulse for reconstruction salvaging the remains of a shipwreck?

INLAND_Campo Adentro emerged in 2009 as a project about a system that links territory, culture and social change, and a collaborative platform. INLAND acts in different ways on various sites, setting up locations and communities-of-practice and art projects in a number of countries. The project was initiated by Fernando García-Dory, who, with studies in art, rural sociology, and agroecology, is interested in the harmonic complexity of biological forms and processes. His work deals with connections and cooperation, from microorganisms to social systems, and from traditional art languages like drawing, to collaborative projects, actions and agroecological cooperatives. His work has been shown in Tensta Konsthall (Stockholm), Van Abbe Museum (Eindhoven), SFMOMA (San Francisco), Centre Pompidou (Paris), among others. He participated in Athens, Lisbon, Gwangju and Jeju Biennales and Documenta 13. In 2012, he received the Annenberg Prize for Socially Engaged Art from Creative Time, New York and was a finalist for the Rolex Prize. He is a member of the Council of Forms (Paris) and a member of the board of directors of the World Alliance of Nomadic Shepherds. Georgina Hill is an artist, she participated in 2019 in the INLAND New Curriculum knowledge composition methodology and has collaborated on other occasions with Campo Adentro. Her practice is concerned with formal hybridity in moving image and intersectional politics of the local, using languages of video, text, installation and their combinations. With postgraduate study in Shakespeare at University College London, she was a student of Hito Steyerl at UdK Berlin, and is now completing her Masters in Fine Art at Goldsmiths University, London. Her work has been shown at Arnis Residency (Germany), Seoul Biennale for Architecture and Urbanism (South Korea), Nordic Winter Symposium, Nida Art Colony (Lithuania), Art Night (UK), Museum of Photography (Germany), Faena Art Forum (USA), among others.
