Call for Proposals: DRIFT Art in Nature Project – due 2/25/12

DRIFT is the the fourth art in nature project of Rerun Productions Foundation, this time dedicated to “transformation”. Artists are invited to respond to the theme and to focus their idea on the location of the exhibition, the old Hydrodynamic Laboratory Waterloopbos (Marknesse, The Netherlands). The exhibition, for which 10-12 artists will be selected, reflects on human intervention in nature, the disappearance of the old world for a new one and the possibilities that arise from that. Curator of the project: Karin van der Molen.

DRIFT refers to our passion for change, transformation from old to new, from sea to land, from industry to nature, from basic to digital and back again. Drift cannot be directed, it is a primal force. It pushes us in a direction, it brings us something new.

Location: Marknesse, the Netherlands

The Waterloopbos is situated on a ”polder” (land reclaimed from the sea) and has been a hydrodynamic laboratory until 2001, where engineers experimented with scale models of harbours and estuaries. Nowadays the half overgrown industrial ruins lie scattered in the forest.

Artists are invited to send a concrete proposal for a spatial installation that can survive the conditions on site for at least 7 months (a public forest, the influences of nature). The choice of material is free, if harmless to nature.

Work period: 8 to 18 May 2012 End of the exhibition: December 2012


Fee: 2.000 Euros Travelling costs: up to 350 €
