Visual Arts Tour
Kunstenplatform PLAN B & Uitwijken
Zwankendamme, Belgium

During September 2022, 5 artist and I were invited by Kunstenplatform PLAN B and uitwijken to create a work in the West-Flemish town of Zwankendamme. The village, consisting of 6 streets and around 700 inhabitants, is marked by the surrounding industry of the Zeebrugge port. With the establishment of the glass factory in 1925, Zwankendamme grew to be a real village. I was interested in tracing the interaction between Zwankendamme and glass, between the inhabitants and their partly rural partly industrial environment and to understand how a village is shaped by the activity that takes place there.
The works can be visited during the weekend of 30.09—02.10 in the streets of the village

Artist Residency
Kunstenplatform PLAN B & Uitwijken
Zwankendamme, Belgium

Kunstenplatform PLAN B supports artists in various disciplines in producing, presenting and reflecting on their artistic practice in the rural context. This is done through location-specific projects which are created both on our own initiative and at the invitation of various initiatives and organisations. Recurring themes are the collective, the non-urban and the small-scale.

In September 2022, Kunstenplatform PLAN B, together with Uitwijken, will work in Zwankendamme, a sub-municipality of Bruges on the edge of the Zeebrugge harbor. They invited artists Laura Van Severen, Tijdelijk Informatie Centrum, Maarten De Vrieze, Thiaba Diop Egutchi and Jana Vasiljević to work and present a visual arts tour at the end of this period; a playful investigation into proximity and the role that art and the artist can play in this context.
