The Border of Eems Delta in the Bierumerschool (concrete or as a concept)
17 July tot 18 October 2020
A special complete work of art in Bierumerschool asks questions about the border as an idea, as a concept, and about the un-covering of boundaries.
Does the idea limit our understanding, restrict, determine an inward looking, navel-gazing community or can it also be seen conversely as widening possibilities, for groundbreaking, forward-looking optimistic thinking, for experiencing the breathtaking beauty and richness of our world crowned by sensible dealings with nature and reasonable understanding of the human species, despite sometimes inevitably encountering unreasonable resistance from human shortcomings, errors of short-circuits in our thinking and perception.
Bierumerschool presents, 'The Border of Eems Delta, in its utopian form, as a playful and serious investigation into new possibilities of seeing, into demarcation, and warmly invites visitors to join in and think about this.
The interdisciplinary works will be presented in Bierum and in the HEMA's space in Delfzijl, which has been set up as the temporary embassy of the Bierum School,
with interventions, performances and conversations. Carolina Burandt has responded in her own unique way to ad hoc and permanent situations,
through a theatrical setting, social/critical installations indoors and outdoors. Hendrik Hantschel has put together a special sound space and
installation in the large attic of the Bierumerschool and Ingeborg Entrop, which gives meaning to sound absorbed into the earth and under the
water surface and in this way makes the surroundings, the landscape, 'experienceable'.
Artist in Space is an experimental talent program developed and executed by the members of
platform Noordenaars. These twelve art institutions from the North of the Netherlands work
together and create new opportunities for talents within the visual arts.
