COASTLINE II: LOCATING ENCOUNTERS
Within frames of the expected, the planned, and the wished for, the coast’s habitants & frequenters contemplate familiar spaces, facilities & displays, questioning connections, disconnections & reconnections. Between accommodating, known by means of the sea, and a relocating & repositioning contact zone, sea-land communication modes & intensities are altered, engagement possibilities reconstructed, and economic opportunities are shifted.
“Locating Encounters” is a photo & text installation, that constructs a future imaginary coastal zone, as clear or as vague as it may exist in drawings, in photos, in promises, in conversations or in minds.
BADGAST IS A PROJECT OF SATELLIETGROEP
Satellietgroep is an artists’ initiative created in 2006 in The Hague, The Netherlands for the purpose of studying the cultural significance of oceans and seas from the perspective of the arts and science. The group’s founders are Jacqueline Heerema (visual artist), Andries Micke (architect), Bas de Koning and Hederik van der Kolk (the graphic designers of creative collective Duel). We challenge artists, designers, (landscape) architects and scientists to develop new concepts and projects that articulate a cultural, innovative and sustainable significance of the sea and its coasts. Arts and science can express the spatial and social qualities – as well as the problems – of our coastal areas, and make them surprisingly accessible to the public. It’s these works that transform a destination normally marked by consumption and recreation into a platform for serious communication.
