Op 1 januari 2006 is - vooruitlopend op de toekomstige kust-uitbreiding – Satellieteiland in gebruik genomen. Op dit kunsteiland wordt het culturele scenario voor de toekomst ontwikkeld en gerealiseerd. Satellietgroep nodigt kunstenaars, wetenschappers en geïnteresseerden uit de eerste Expedities van Vaste Land naar Satelliet-eiland te verbeelden in een culturele dienst, product of strategie.Satellieteiland is in maart 2006 geopend, met medewerking van Ronald Waterman (bedenker van Plan Waterman voor kustuitbreiding) en acteur Niel Brandaan Cotterink.

Dutch Artists collective Satellietgroep (The Hague, 2006) explores the sea, coastal transitions, climate change and the impact of mankind on these processes, in The Netherlands and abroad. The team creates conditions for artists and designers to work on site during artist-in-residency programs, collaborate with the extensive network of locals and scientists, to develop new works and insights to be shared with broader audiences during public programs.
The current team of Satellietgroep consists of Jacqueline Heerema, Francois Lombarts and Lotte Bosman.

We see more and more examples of contemporary artistic projects that place our environment (or Umwelt, as the Germans put it more accurately) at the core of their work. There seems to be a global wave of artists and designers that address the ways in which humans interact with and affect the climate and climate changes. And that's great! We need to critically investigate perceptions of our human footprint as a cultural phenomenon. Artists, designers, scientists and (educational) institutions feel the urge to examine how the human impact on our planet (and beyond!) influences our daily lives. They collaborate outside their established domains and they find new strategies to step out of their and your comfort zones to interconnect with society beyond the abstractions of numbers and figures; beyond white cubes and islands of knowledge!

Special location for artistic research and artist in residency program is the Zandmotor south of The Hague. Since 2014 Satellietgroep explores the Zandmotor as cultural phenomenon.
The Zandmotor is a pilot near The Hague that uses the principles of 'Building with Nature'. This innovative project aims to generate new knowledge in times of climate change and relative sea level rise for our future coastal protection. An innovation, built on the foreshore in 2011 with 21,5 million cubic meters of sand. The Zandmotor is the only Dutch area outside the dikes that is exposed to the tides, built to transform and even assimilate around 2030 in sea, beach and dunes. The result is a dynamic extension of the coast, a new controlled ‘wilderness’. The Zandmotor is an publicly accessible open air scientific and artistic laboratory.

Prospectors at Intersection, Art Rotterdam 2017
| 2018-07-31 17:17:13
FEBRUARY 9-12, 2017
'PROSPECTORS: THREE LAYERS OF LANDSCAPE'
SATELLIETGROEP @ INTERSECTIONS, ART ROTTERDAM
FREE admission to Intersections! More information: www.artrotterdam.com
Open: Thursday 9/2: 11-19, Friday 10/2: 11-21, Saturday 11/2: 11-19 u and Sunday 12/1: 11-19
During Intersections, Art Rotterdam artists collective Satellietgroep presents in collaboration with De Onkruidenier and guest artist Flora Reznik ‘Prospectors - Three layers of landscape’.
We show a non-romantic approach of artistic manual labour; of art as durational research methodology, disseminating the raw materials of the roles we play as observers, actors, explorers and prospectors of liminal landscapes. With the tools we need, with the landscape ingredients, archives and lexicons we collect, and with the insights we discover and share while interacting within these open air public landscape laboratories and people.
With special thanks to Stroom and Squat Deluxe.
We proudly present:
WATERPIONIER - SATELLIETGROEP & ONKRUIDENIER
With Waterpionier, Satellietgroep and De Onkruidenier performed fieldwork on several locations searching for salt/sweet gradients in changing landscapes. A mobile Cocktailbar has been developed to share the flavours from the landscape with visitors during climate tastings.

SPECIAL: PERFORMANCE WATERPIONIER COCKTAILBAR!
Can we taste climate change? Satellietgroep and De Onkruidenier invite you to share the taste of liminal landscapes with you during 'climate tastings' in the Cocktailbar on: Thursday 9/2 15:30-17h, Friday 10/2 15:30-17h, Saturday 11/2 13 -14:30h, Sunday 12/2 13 -14:30h.

CECI N'EST PAS UNE POMME DE TERRE - LOTTE BOSMAN
Lotte Bosman presents a part of her research into root growth. How deep the roots of a crop grow, doesn’t depend so much on the species as on the soil that it is planted in. Potatoes in general, have relatively weak roots that grow around 40 centimeters into the soil. But how far will they reach without this resistance of the earth? www.lottemilenebosman.com
HOLE - FLORA REZNIK
As a student in ArtScience Interfaculty of the KABK and KC The Hague, Flora Reznik was part of the program ElementsLabs, which took place on the Zandmotor. There she developed her work 'Hole'. For this project she kept returning to the Zandmotor during a period of eight months, to dig a hole.www.florenciareznik.com

Symposium The Abundance and Scarcity of Sand, DDW 2017

Symposium The Abundance and Scarcity of Sand
Friday October 27 from 20:00 - 22:45, doors open at 19:30
Location: MU Artspace Eindhoven
Atelier NL’s upcoming symposium ‘The Abundance and Scarcity of Sand’ during Dutch Design Week 2017, will examine sand from geological, ecological and social perspectives. The evening will unite artists, designers, scientists, environmentalists, and the local community to participate in lectures and in-depth conversation regarding the environmental challenges and potential solutions surrounding sand.
The symposium is dedicated to the memory and passion of Michael Welland, British geologist and author of the award-winning book ‘Sand’, who had a profound poetic understanding of life and the
natural world. He was the man who inspired and guided us to set up this symposium. He would have loved to be here with us in person, but he will never leave us in spirit and neither will his words.
Keynote speaker Denis Delestrac, award-winning filmmaker and director of Sand Wars (2013), will kick off the conversation. The lecture that Michael Welland prepared for the evening will then be read in his honor. Followed by conceptual artist, curator and community creator Jacqueline Heerema of Satellietgroep, who will share her perspective on the Culture of Nature, the Zandmotor and more. The evening will conclude with a timely panel discussion featuring Marcus Fairs, founder of Dezeen, Mindert de Vries (Deltares) on behalf of the Waddenacademie, Winy Maas (MVRDV) and Lonny van Ryswyck (Atelier NL). Isolde Hallensleben will host the evening, starting the dialogue with everybody involved.
This symposium hosted by Atelier NL & MU in collaboration with Satellietgroep and Dutch Design Week, will take place at MU in Eindhoven on Friday October 27 from 20:00 - 22:45.
