Residencies & Projects
[NL] Sinds 2013 ontvangt nadine geen subsidies meer van de Vlaamse Gemeenschap. Met de ondersteuning van de Vlaamse Gemeenschapscommissie konden we echter onze ruimte blijven behouden. Ondanks de stopzetting van de residentiewerking, zijn we nog volop bezig met het ondersteunen van kunstenaars. Naast de projecten die we organiseren, stelt nadine haar ruimte Plateau ter beschikking voor kunstenaars die werkruimte, presentatie- of vergaderruimte zoeken.
We stellen onze infrastructuur graag ter beschikking aan kunstenaars die een bureau/werkruimte nodig hebben met de mogelijkheid andere mensen te ontmoeten in het kader van hun projecten. Wie geïnteresseerd is kan meer informatie over zijn/haar project sturen naar firstname.lastname@example.org en welk soort ondersteuning en infrastructuur nodig is. Wie de ruimte graag wil bezoeken kan eveneens een afspraak maken via email@example.com.
[EN] Since 2013 nadine no longer receives subsidies from the Flemish Community. With the support of the Flemish Community Commission (VGC) we were able to keep our space Plateau. Despite the cessation of our residency program, we are still continuing to support artists. In addition to the projects we are currently organising, nadine offers her space Plateau to artists as a work environment, presentation space or meetingroom.
Our infrastructure is available for artists working on projects and looking for a desk/work area that also offers the opportunity to meet other people. Who is interested can send firstname.lastname@example.org a text about the project you are working on and what your needs are in terms of support and infrastructure.
[FR] Depuis début 2013 nadine ne reçoit plus de subventions de la Communauté Flamande. Avec le support de Vlaamse Gemeenschapscommissie (VGC), nous pouvons conserver notre espace Plateau. Malgré l'arrêt de notre programme de résidence, nous continuons à soutenir les artistes. Au delà des projets que nous organisons actuellement, nous mettons notre espace Plateau à disposition, comme espace de travail, de présentation ou de rencontre.
Notre infrastructure est disponible pour des artistes travaillant préparant des projets et ayant besoin d'un bureau/ espace de travail offrant également la possibilité de rencontrer d'autres personnes. Si vous êtes intéressés, nous vous invitons à envoyer un texte de présentation de votre projet à email@example.com, ainsi qu'une description de vos besoins en terme de soutient et d'infrastructure.
From 2011 until 2013 Various Artists explored the theme Agriculture, and more specific the cultivation of corn in the past, present, and future. This project is called Zea Mays is part of his G-ke series of installations about Geopolitics.
The production of maize for non-traditional uses, not related to human consumption is a threat for it's future diversity. Bio-plastics, biofuel, forage, and high fructose corn syrup are all examples of applications that opens the doors for GMO corn.
Recently Mexico, a region at the origin of a huge diversity of maize, accepted the introduction of genetic manipulated corn into their food system. This decision risks to be followed by other countries, including Europe where GMO hasn't wide spread yet. Longterm research about GMO is insufficient but already proved to be unhealthy for human consumption.
Zea Mays reflects upon this possible future of corn in a visual, abstract way. Data, and research of the past, present, and future of maize, and its relation with feeding of an ever growing global population is being translated in various ways (human mathematics, drawings, carpets).
A laboratory is a facility that provides conditions in which research, experiments, and measurement may be performed. There exist many different forms of laboratories from scientific to computer to clandestine labs, etc. So what can an ecological media art lab be? And what does it have to offer? In recent years many organizations are using the lemma "lab" to emphasize their experimental and research-oriented character. A lab in our sense should be a diverse set of facilities, distributed across the partner locations but connected. An experiment to share culture and art with the surroundings and environment in a more consistent and sustainable way. To make a different art, an art that is related to the environment in which we live/work. As a model ALOTOF could develop into a string of places that mutually are getting affected by new insights, new works, new artists. But more than a mere perturbation of information. A new mode of creating.
ALOTOF [A Laboratory On The Open Fields] is a new collaborative and longer-term project by 4 partners OKNO (be), ECOS (fr), Yo-Yo (cz) and nadine (be) and a lot of associated partners throughout Europe. The basic idea is to organize a dynamical outdoor laboratory where all creative activities can take place in.
We start from the garden or field, and move on with our media technology and artistic tools, to look into new ways of perceiving and making art, outside, as an experiment in durability. The necessity of finding new materials and methods to work with, new effectuators and outcomes to emerge.
Twice we work throughout the 4 seasons, marked by changes in the weather, the differences in climate and how all plants and animals, insects and bacterias make up the consortium of actors that define our surroundings.
ALOTOF deploys its 5 key approaches to getting its hands dirty with nature and build an unique connected and distributed lab, shared by all participants: constructions, measurements, patterns, learnings and wanderings, performances.
