DRIFTERS è un duo artistico nato a Londra nel 2014 e composto da Valentina Miorandi e Sandrine Nicoletta, il cui background è basato sull'arte pubblica e il cinema partecipato. Attualmente stanno lavorando ad un progetto di ricerca a lungo termine dal titolo Eros Epidermico che si compone di video, workshop, installazioni e poesia visiva, che indagano e si addentratano nei tessuti cutanei, approcciando il tema della pelle - umana, androide e delle smart cities - dal "touch" di Luce Irigaray alla "sensitivity" di Banjmin Bratton. Il loro lavoro è stato esposto ampiamente in Italia e all'estero, nei musei e nelle gallerie d'arte. La loro pratica è caratterizzata dalla partecipazione pubblica; progetti a lungo termine - Conkè, Turning Tables, 175 Ettari- coinvolgono le comunità nel processo creativo. Il loro approccio promuove il potere creativo dei partecipanti, iniziando un dialogo tra storia orale, strutture sociali e nuove tecnologie. Lavorano con video, installazioni, performance e suoni che rappresentano le realtà sociali attraverso diversi approcci alla narrazione, in cui il confine tra l'artista e il pubblico diventa poroso e osmotico. 

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).

Valentina Miorandi, artista ed exhibition designer. Si è laureata in Teorie e Pratiche teatrali al DAMS di Bologna, ha conseguito borse di studio per il master in regia cinematografica alla New York Film Academy (USA), il master in direzione alla fotografia all’ESCAC (Spagna) e correntemente è iscritta al secondo anno di master al Dutch Art Institute (NL).
I suoi lavori e progetti partecipativi sono stati ospitati in Italia e all’estero in musei, gallerie e spazi pubblici.

DRIFTERS is an artistic duo born in London in 2014 and composed of Valentina Miorandi and Sandrine Nicoletta, whose background is based on public art and participatory cinema. They are currently working on a long-term research project entitled Eros Epidermico, which consists of videos, workshops, installations and visual poetry, investigating and penetrating the skin tissue, approaching the theme of the skin - human, android and smart cities - from the "touch" of Luce Irigaray to the "sensitivity" of Banjmin Bratton. Their work has been widely exhibited in Italy and abroad, in museums and art galleries. Their practice is characterised by public participation; long-term projects - Conkè, Turning Tables, 175 hectares - involve communities in the creative process. Their approach promotes the creative power of the participants, initiating a dialogue between oral history, social structures and new technologies. They work with videos, installations, performances and sounds that represent social realities through different approaches to narration, in which the boundary between the artist and the audience becomes porous and osmotic. 

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). She is currently studying at Dutch Art Institute (NL). Her works and projects have been shown in Italy and abroad in museums, galleries, and public spaces.
