From Hawaii to Iceland

1 mei 2019


My initial registration for an Artist-In-Residence in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park on The Big Island will be converted into an invitation to stay at the Hafnarfjörður Center of Culture and Fine Art in Iceland.

After the (almost) finalization of my Dutch ‘Monuments of Climate Change’, about our ‘struggle’ against the water, I will investigate in July 2019 from Hafnarfjörður residence how people in Iceland go to war / live with / have adapted to that other natural force: volcanism, and what these adaptations / interventions do to the landscape there, and to examine and investigate the various uses of geothermal energy, what they bring about in the landscape.
