A multimedia performance by Lotte Nijsten and Gillis Van der Wee about the fragile relationship between man, technology and the sea.
How do you make a landscape tangible with sound? What encounters and connections take place? And what can listening to a landscape tell us?
Wasteland/Booreiland is a multimedia performance in which listening is central. In a series of poetic sound portraits set around a research vessel and an oil platform, this performance sketches the fragile relationship between man, technology and the sea.
Over 900 oil and gas platforms are spread over the territorial North Sea waters of various European countries. While our demand for energy is only increasing, the oil and gas fields in Europe are gradually being exhausted.
Over time, the ancient platforms have been transformed into artificial reefs, which provide food and protection for marine organisms. The production platform thus becomes a symbolic place where people, technology and marine life come together.
This performance is part of the exhibition Tidal Zone Experiences that takes place from April 20 until May 25 at Pilar.
