SWEET-SWEAT Is een langlopend artistiek onderzoek van het Nederlandse kunstenaarsduo Onkruidenier, Jonmar van Vlijmen en Ronald Boer; momenteel verblijven zij in Taiwan. Samen met kunstenaar Rosanne van Wijk voegen zij nu een nieuwe, mondiale editie toe. Zij verbinden daarbij Klimaat als mensenwerk in Den Haag met de parallelle artist-in-residency bij Bamboo Curtain Studio in Taipei, op het eiland Taiwan in de Oost-Chinese Zee.

Op beide locaties brengt de Onkruidenier alle benodigde grondstoffen samen - zand, gebrande schelpen, suiker en kleverige rijst - voor het produceren van cement volgens historisch receptuur. Door de Nederlanders uit het oude China meegebracht naar Formosa in koloniale tijden (1624-1662). Met deze grondstoffen brengen ze de wereld van de kust (zand en schelpen) samen met de wereld van de supermarkt (suiker en rijst) tot een artistiek bindmiddel tussen natuur en cultuur en tussen Oost en West.

Met SWEET - SWEAT bevragen de Onkruidenier en Rosanne van Wijk de systemen achter wereldwijde uitwisseling van kennis, grondstoffen, producten en (invasieve) exoten en hoe invloeden uit het verleden nog steeds in ons dagelijks landschap voortleven. Kan je klimaatverandering als postkoloniaal vraagstuk beschouwen?

SWEET-SWEAT is a long-term artistic research by the Dutch artist duo Onkruidenier, Jonmar van Vlijmen and Ronald Boer, currently in residence in Taiwan. Together with artist Rosanne van Wijk they now add a new, global edition. They connect Climate as Artifact in The Hague with the parallel artist-in-residency at Bamboo Curtain Studio in Taipei, on the island of Taiwan in the East China Sea.

On both locations Onkruidenier will bring together all required materials - sand, burnt shells, sugar and glutinous rice - to fabricate cement according to an old historic recipe. Brought by the Dutch from ancient China and introduced at Formosa during colonial times (1624-1662). With these raw materials they bring the world of the coast (sand and shells) together with the world of the supermarket (sugar and rice) into an artistic binder between nature and culture and between East and West.

With SWEET - SWEAT, Onkruidenier and Rosanne van Wijk question the systems behind worldwide exchange of knowledge, raw materials, products and (invasive) species and how influences from the past still live in our landscape. Can you perceive climate change as a postcolonial issue?


Program during Climate as Artifact:
Workshop on November 3.

in their collaborative practice, de Onkruidenier, Jonmar van Vlijmen and Ronald Boer explore forms of symbiosis between the realm of the cultural and the natural world. Through on site participatory fieldwork and research, their artistic practice develops new interpretations on the relationship between human and nature. Their work transforms familiar everyday actions of plants like classifying, cultivating, preparing and consuming into experiential narratives.

Rosanne van Wijk is fascinated by visible and non-visible systems and constructions we face everyday in society. Systems we constantly adapt to and interact with. During her recent working period at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht she created a flexible uniform as a methodology to investigate systems and how they are interconnected. By creating flexible and open systems she creates space for different perspectives.


Satellietgroep & Onkruidenier share a long term collaboration, with extensive fieldwork, questioning how close we can relate to our environment, to discover fresh insights. Ronald was artist-in-residence with Satellietgroep in 2010, co-curator of Satellietgroep 2011-2016, and together with Jonmar involved in collaborative research projects since 2012. Selection:

Collaboration of Onkruidenier & Satellietgroep. How salt adaptive are humans? Around 3% of the earths water is fresh. So why not look at the potential of using that other 97%? Can humans become more salt (halo) tolerant? Can we find fresh water in the salt environment of Zandmotor?

Naturally there is a balanced gradient between fresh and salt water where sea meets land.  In Holland coastal defences against the sea create steps in the gradient.
