Drifters nasce a Londra nel 2014 con l’interesse di intrecciare direzioni, esplorare spazi e persone usando un approccio euristico che mira a generare un’espansione dell’attività cognitiva attraverso il viaggio. Driters ha inoltre intrapreso un progetto di ricerca accademica basato sulla raccolta di casi di studio (Heurustic Records) che si compongono di dialoghi riguardanti i modi di procedere, in grado di svelare le nostre intime morfologie e le forze d’attrazione che influenzano le nostre scelte di vita.

Sandrine Nicoletta è un’artista, performer che ha un background in campo sociale e una ricerca ventennale sulla pratica artistica negli spazi pubblici e un curriculum espositivo internazionale. Si è laureata all’Accademia di Belle Arti a Bologna, ha partecipato a numerose residenze d’artista e ha conseguito un Master in Fine Arts all’University of the Arts a Londra (UK).

Drifters was born in London in 2014 with the interest in weaving directions, exploring places and people through a heuristic approach. Its aim is to extend the cognitive activity through travelling. In addition, Drifters undertook an academic research project based on the recollection of case studies (Heuristic Records), which consist of dialogues regarding ways of proceeding which are able of revealing our intimate morphologies and the forces of attraction that influence our life choices.

Sandrine Nicoletta is an artist and performer with a background in the social field. She has a twenty-year experience of research and artistic practice in public places and an international exhibition curriculum. She graduated from the Fine Arts Academy of Bologna, participated in many artists-in-residence programs and completed her Master in Fine Arts at the University of the Arts, London (UK).

Valentina Miorandi is an artist and exhibition designer. She graduated from the University of Bologna with a degree in Theory and Practice of Theatre, was awarded fellowships for attending a Master degree in Film Direction at the New York Film Academy (USA), and a Master in Direction of Photography at ESCAC (Spain).
