The -In The Age of Post-Drought- exhibition series is dedicated to the global water-related challenges. Due to climate change and the rapid world population growth, water scarcity is grown to be one of the biggest threats facing life on earth in the 21st century.
The program is an exploration into the various small and large-scale (bio-)technical designs, experiments, solutions and artistic interventions that can contribute to a more ecological friendly future in which water-related issues will be a problem of the past. These problems are looked at from four different angles: water scarcity, water pollution, water nuisance and desertification. Participants: Atelier Van Lieshout, Maze de Boer, Jolan van der Wiel, Zoro Feigl, Marco Barotti, Robertina Sebjanic, Lennart Lahuis, TeZ & Federico Murgia, Jun Kamei, Formafantasma, Gabriele Diamanti, Creating Water Foundation, Sara Nuytemans, Lola Architects. The Label showcase, located at the Campina location as well, features a showcase of new Art & Design collection items. Supported by: Transnatural Label, Creative Industries fund NL, Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, BankGiro Loterij Fonds, Stichting Stokroos, Mondriaan Fund
Eliodomestico is a purification system for private use developed for third world countries. The system works on solar energy and is able to purify five litres of water every day, even in the driest and hottest weather conditions. The design is open-source and the local craftsmen can produce this filtering system with only a few resources. It is easily made with sustainable materials, such as terracotta, anodised zinc and recycled plastic.
This installation is using this phenomenon to create a shape-shifting form that is the result of the interplay between flow and temperature on a slowly rotating canvas.
When approaching the northern shores of the Netherlands hundreds of disused fishnets can be found laying around on the beach.
De Boer was inspired by that sight and decided to create an installation that responds to the pulse fishing ban.
