Soils

Until 24 November from 11:00 to 17:00

Exhibition

This group exhibition explores a renewed connection with our soil. Soils are the foundation of our lives. It is where our ancestors once lived and where future generations will build an existence. It is the link between past, present and future. The source that feeds us.

Soils

But the relationship between human and earth is also often strained. From land depletion and overproduction to land grabbing and (labour) exploitation. How can we re-ground ourselves in our environment? And how does that help us reconnect with each other? The group exhibition Soils addresses these questions. International artists, designers, farmers and activists work towards more empathy for our soils.

Mankind and soil

Soils focuses on the human relationship with soils. A relationship that is often complicated, as nation-states we know as Australia, Colombia, Indonesia, Mexico and the Netherlands show. For the artists, these names are less relevant. Rather, they seek expression based on kinship and grounded knowledge, as is done by the Wurundjeri land, the Iku peoples' guarded Chundwa (Heart of the World), the Pasar and Pamona language areas, Sinanché in Mayan Yucatán and Eindhoven in North Brabant.

Local, national and international

In Soils, local, national and international artists dig beneath the surface. Using ancestral knowledge and tangible traces of other ways of thinking, they create a web of relationships. From Diewke van den Heuvel’s photographic work of the melting Alpine glacier to Wapke Feenstra’s visualization of the changing appearance of the cow. From the Maya house as an embassy for the Mayan culture by Suumil Móokt'aan to the New Rural Agenda Temple by art collective Jatiwangi art Factory.
