Souvenirs van de woeste grond

Souvenirs van de woeste grond
Research project; 40 stories about landscape transformations in Overijssel.

The stories were collected by observing voids created by disappeared objects in the landscape (a.o. disappeared farms, waters, churches) and interviewing local elderly about the political, economical, religious and other causes that made these objects disappear. The stories were used as a conceptual basis for contemporary souvenirs in limited editions, designed by (other) artists.

Commissioned by Kunstenlab Deventer and in collaboration with Landschap Overijssel.
