Souvenirs van de Woeste Grond

2013

Collection of 40 narratives from various landscapes in Overijssel. I interviewed local farmers and other inhabitants who whitnessed big and small transformations of their surroundings. The individual and group interviews were focused on objects that have disappeared or lost their original function caused by natural, economical and political changes.

Commissioned by Kunstenlab, in collaboration with Landschap Overijssel.
