SPECIAL:
INVITATION MAY 12
PUBLIC EXPEDITION ZANDMOTOR#11: IJZER - IRON

BY MAURICE MEEUWISSE
Location: Zandmotor, between F1 and F2, maked X on map below
Check for directions: http://www.dezandmotor.nl/nl/strandbezoekers/route-naar-de-zandmotor/
Time: 10:45 - 18:00
Please note: COFFEE BREAK at 10:45 - 11:00



Artist Maurice Meewisse is fascinated how the Zandmotor is in a way also the accomplishment of industry, the result of human endeavour, even though it is experienced as nature.
With a mixture of natural and human-made materials he will start a small scale industry: with charcoal he produced himself from driftwood that washed ashore on the Zandmotor and the low quality iron ore he found at the Zandmotor, Maurice will attempt to make iron on May 12.



INVITATION APRIL 17 - MAY 16
KOFFIEPAUZE ZANDMOTOR - COFFEE BREAK ZANDMOTOR
BY MAURICE MEEWISSE


Maurice Meewisse doet onderzoek naar de randverschijnselen en de bijwerkingen van de Zandmotor. Hij zoekt naar onverwachte materialen die niet op een strand thuis horen – en dan voornamelijk obscure objecten – zoals steenkool en ijzeroer. Met de mengeling van natuurlijk materiaal en niet natuurlijke producten wil hij een kleinschalige industrie opzetten: Hij gaat ijzer maken. Op een bepaalde manier is de Zandmotor ook een product van de industrie, ondanks dat het in de beleving als natuur wordt gezien. Meewisse zal daar een belangrijk dagelijks ritueel introduceren: de koffiepauze.
Gedurende vier weken opent hij een kantine waar mensen welkom zijn om een kopje koffie te komen drinken – elke werkdag open van 10:45 tot 11:00.

Maurice Meewisse researches the fringes and side effects of the Zandmotor. He looks for materials that aren't expected on the beach – preferably obscure objects – like coal and low quality iron ore. With a mixture of natural and human-made materials he will start a small scale industry: he will make iron. The Zandmotor is in a way also the accomplishment of industry, the result of human endeavour, even though it is experienced as nature. To this he will introduce a very important daily ritual: the coffee break.
For a four week period he opens a cantine where people are invited to come and enjoy a cup of coffee – open every working day between 10:45 and 11:00.

DE ZAND MACHINE - THE SAND MACHINE
BY LOTTE GEEVEN


Woont u in de woestijn?
Help ons het akoestisch zand te verzamelen vanuit de afgelegen plaatsen op deze planeet waar het zand zingt, fluit, giert en brult. Dit zeldzame zand vanuit de hele wereld zal samen komen in een publiek geluidskunstwerk.
Voor het kunstproject in ontwikkeling, verzamelt kunstenaar Lotte Geeven akoestisch zand uit de weinige en afgelegen plaatsen in de wereld waar dit zeldzame fenomeen zich voordoet en de woestijn brult en zingt. Ook op de Zandmotor is een stukje ‘zingend zand’ te vinden waarmee Geeven haar eerste tests heeft gedaan. Via Facebook, Twitter, telefoonboeken, onverwachte sporen en Google Maps spoort ze mensen op die in bepaalde extreem afgelegen gebieden leven en overtuigt hen om akoestische zand naar Nederland te sturen. Op dit moment rijden een limousine bestuurder in Oman genaamd Rizwan, evenals Luca uit Kazachstan en Melanie, die op de eenzaamste snelweg in de wereld in Nevada woont, naar de woestijn om zandkorrels te verzamelen, die samen zullen klinken in het kunstwerk. Voor de laatste partij van dit speciale zand reist de kunstenares binnenkort zelf naar de Namib, de oudste woestijn van de wereld.
Als u wilt helpen en toevallig in Mongolië, Chili, Afghanistan, Kazachstan, China, Qatar, Oman, Tsjaad, de Westelijke Sahara, Marokko, Californië of Nevada woont, of iemand kent die daar woont: stuur dan een e-mail naar Lotte Geeven (info@geeven.nl) en zij zal zo snel mogelijk contact met u opnemen. Alvast bedankt!

Are you living in the desert?
Help collect acoustic sand from the few remote areas on this planet where the sand sings, whistles, booms and roars. This rare sand from all over the world will be sounding together in a public artwork. For the art project in progress, artist Lotte Geeven is collecting acoustic sands from the few remote places in the world where this rare phenomenon occurs and the deserts roar and sing. Also on the Zandmotor, traces of ‘singing sand’ can be found with which Geeven started her first experiments. Through Facebook, Twitter, phonebooks, wild leads and Google maps she is tracing people that live in the extremely remote areas and persuades them to send acoustic sand. At this very moment a limousine driver in Oman named Rizwan; Luca, from Kazakhstan and Melanie, who is living on the loneliest highway in the world in Nevada, are all about to drive into the desert to collect these sand grains that will sound together in the artwork. For the last batch of this special sand the artist herself will travel to the Namib, the world’s oldest desert.
If you feel like helping out and happen to live in Mongolia, Chile, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, China, Qatar, Oman, Chad, Western Sahara, Morocco, California or Nevada or know someone who lives there: please send an email to Lotte Geeven (info@geeven.nl) and she will get back to you a.s.a.p. Thank you!

FEBRUARY - SEPTEMBER 2017:
COCKY EEK 'LANDING SITES'
ZANDMOTOR ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE & OEROL

IN COLLABORATION WITH SCHWEIGMAN&, MATTHIJS MUNNIK & GEARTSJE VAN DER ZEE

The project will start with preliminary research at Zandmotor in February 2017, develop during Oerol June 2017 to be presented at Zandmotor in September 2017.
During the first part of the artist-in-residency there are a two public presentation moments at the Zandmotor: Friday February 17 at 13:00h and Friday March 3 at 13:00h.
We meet at Argusmast at Zandmotor.
You are very welcome to join, please contact us in advance at satellietgroep@gmail.com
 
The Zandmotor is a man-made landscape that will dissolve in about 15 years into sea, beach and dunes. Right now, how can we sense its wide-open space and the movement it contains in all its intensity? The body is always located in relation to the space that contains it. Space is something that is experienced in motion that first makes it appearance through movement. During this research period body and space are the materials that are set into relation to each other. At the Zandmotor we will explore and develop wearable interfaces to create new sensory relationships in which our inner landscape will converge with the landscape that surrounds us. The interfaces will stage us in a contemporary drama in which we are part of and separate from our environment.

The process of Landing Sites can be followed at the blog https://landingsites.wordpress.com/
Landing Sites is a project by Cocky Eek in collaboration with Matthijs Munnik, assisted by Geartsje van der Zee. The outcomes of the artist-in-residence at the Zandmotor will be presented at the Oerol Festival 2017 and at the Zandmotor itself in September. Landing Sites is a coproduction of Schweigman& and Satellietgroep. Stroom Den Haag generously supports Landing Sites.
