GARDENING Side programme
Besides the exhibition, GARDENING Amelisweerd offers a lot of extra activities around Landhuis Oud Amelisweerd and on the estate. Below you can find more information about these interactive art installations and walks.
Guided tours through the exhibition
Curious about your place in the ecosystem? Curator and initiator of the exhibition GARDENING Fabian van Sluijs will guide you through Landhuis Oud Amelisweerd and make you aware of your role in the balance between humans, technology and nature via the artworks. What if we give voices to non-human perspectives? What forces have shaped our landscape over the years? Can we still distinguish between untouched and cultivated nature?
All works in the exhibition are carefully selected and together form one ecosystem. Using hole puncher and punch card, at each work you are invited to reflect on the question: to what extent does it belong to art, culture, analysis or technology? At the end of the tour, we reflect on how we are part of the exhibition GARDENING and all nature surrounding it.
Where: Landhuis Oud Amelisweerd
When: June 23rd, 30th and July 14th
Price: Access to the landhuis on donationbasis
Open during dry weather on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11:00 - 17:00. The art installation is close on rainy days.
Raumklang is a location-specific sound architecture, created and explored by multiple visitors simultaneously. The installation invites you to experience 4-dimensional objects in space, which are perceived through hearing; your perspective and auditory experience morphing constantly as you navigate your way around and through these invisible sonic objects. Through the distillation of acoustic properties, architectonic qualities, cultural history and activity on site, Raumklang becomes an instrument for cognitive extension. The sound-led navigation constitutes a heightened awareness of our relationships to the acoustic environment and the meaning of the particular sounds which normally remain subconscious. This edition for GARDENING renders inaudible natural worlds into the audible domain, sustaining new perspectives on the relationship between nature and the anthropocene.
Raumklang is supported by Mondriaan Fonds, Machinerie, AIAIAI, Stichting Stokroos, Stichting Niemeijer, Creative Fund NL and co-produced by Creative Coding Utrecht and V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media.
Raumklang is created by Zeno van den Broek and Robin Koek. Zeno van den Broek is a Dutch composer and artist whose works investigate and unsettle the relationships between people and fabricated surroundings. He utilizes audio-visual means to create site- and concept-specific works which interrogate conventional conceptions of our experience of space. Robin Koek is an enterprising sound artist who aspires to nurture a new cognitive understanding of the world surrounding us mediated through art and education. His work reflects on the environment integrating field recordings and site-specificity in composition and installation practice.
All Year Round by Driessens and Verstappen
Open 24/7 until June 2023.
The Amelisweerd estate has a high ecological value and a rich biodiversity, which is expressed in characteristic landscapes and vistas. The artwork All Year Round adds an extra layer to the experience of these landscapes.
At four locations at Oud-Amelisweerd and Fort Rijnauwen, the difference in seasons is made visible on your cell phone. A QR code reveals the 360° landscape photo of the opposite season and as you look around, the image on the screen corresponds with the scenery behind. The phone thus forms a window on the surroundings, but from another season's perspective. The difference makes you aware of the powerful annual metamorphosis of our natural environment. The posts with the QR codes will stay in place for at least one year, so the work remains accessible beyond the GARDENING exhibition.
The locations can be found on the map below. You can also open them here on Google Maps.
Het woud heeft oren by Femke Bosma
Het woud heeft oren is a Dutch audio tour.
The Old Oak is the oldest tree of Amelisweerd. What if you could interview that tree? What memories are stored in the forest? During a walk through the forest you will be taken back to Amelisweerd from 1982. You will hear the stories of a number of people who were there during the felling. And which important events will The Old Oak experience in the future? What are activists preparing for?
Visit the startlocation, Landhuis Oud Amelisweerd, and start the audio below.
The artworks of MonsterCode in the exhibition consist of much more than just the works. You are also challenged to walk the Monsterwalk on Langoed Amelisweerd. Follow the 45 or 25 minute route and look for signs of the monsters! You might even come across a monster that has never been discovered before.... Flyers of Monsterwalk can be found in the MonsterCode room and downloaded here.
