Marknesse, the Netherlands
May to December 2012
The former Hydrodynamic Laboratory Waterloopbos hosts in 2012 DRIFT, a contemporary visual art project dealing with transformation. It is the fourth art in nature project of Rerun Productions Foundation, that is a non-profit organization that puts its focus to cultural and social issues in publications and art projects. The projects aim at making connections between art and nature, between art and social issues, and create an accessible platform for contemporary art to reach a wide audience.
DRIFT focuses on the need for change, for example from industry to nature and back again. The exhibition invites its audience to a reflection on the impact of human interventions in nature and the effects and chances that this impact generates.
On the former industrial site and in a young forest twelve artists get the opportunity to express their vision of transformation. They are invited to send proposals for a spatial installation that fit to the topic and refer to the special place they are shown at. The place itself embodies transformation, as it hosts half overgrown and partly restored industrial ruins in the forest.
The artists’ work will be created in The Waterloopbos in May and can be seen until December.
The deadline for proposals to proposalskunstbroedplaats [at] gmail [dot] com is February 25, 2012.
