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.

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
