Tonight, Friday June 3 2016, I am giving a presentation about my new project Gasroute Groningen at NP3 in Groningen.
Where: Kolendrift 13, Groningen.
Time 19:00 – 21:00
Admission is free (€ 5 if you join the BBQ at 18:00).
Foundation Kop invited me to make a work as part of their headliners project in which artists are asked to react to an article in the daily news.
In response to the ongoing coverage about the earthquakes in the northern province of Groningen, due to the gas extraction that started over 50 years ago, I wanted to make a work that would last longer than the average headline; a biking route that can be used in the years to come.
A tour through the beautiful landscape of Groningen will take you along extraction sites and other gas related locations. A tribute to the landscape and its natural resource that made the Dutch welfare state possible.
In June the route will be made public through www.gasroute.nl. Among other things it will include a gps file that you can use on both your phone and your bicycle navigation system,
Mark your calendar:
– June 18, the opening ride. More info about rsvp and where we start, the wonderful village of Loppersum, will follow soon here.
