Land Art Weekend

The Dutch province of Flevoland is home to a unique collection of land art. During the annual Land Art Weekend, we put the spotlight on the ten land art monuments of the polder. The next Land Art Weekend takes place 4 and 5 June 2022.

During the Land Art Weekend there will be a guide at work of land art who can enthusiastically tell you about the artwork and answer all your questions. In addition, we will organise performances and activities at various locations.

The Land Art Weekend takes place every year in the first weekend of June. The past two years the weekend was focused on the individual experience because of the pandemic, but this year we are pleased to be able to come together again at the Land Art. Makers from various disciplines will organise activities at the artworks, including a drawing workshop, a vr performance, site-specific theatre and performances.

Here are some highlights of the programme:

At Riff, PD#18245 (Dronten) Elianne Koolstra, who also illustrated the Land Art Weekend poster, will give drawing workshops. Look at the artwork from all sides together with Elianne, get inspired, and draw it yourself!

At Deltawerk // (Marknesse) artist collective Waterlanders will take you on a poetic, visual journey through the Waterloopbos. Ruins of the Future is a site-specific performance that philosophises about how life changes while the water rises. 'Dive' in the fantasy of the makers!

In De Groene Kathedraal (Almere), a continuous VR performance by Black Pencil will take place, titled 100 years of Almere. About the past, present and future of Almere, in a mix of poetic sounds and energetic, rhythmic structures.

At Polderland Garden of Love and Fire (Almere), three emerging international artists from Atelier AM will provide a daily performance programme. Atelier AM is a new Almere artist residency for artists who have recently graduated from Dutch art academies. They work daily in De Kwekerij in Corrosia, and three of them will make an excursion to Daniel Libeskind's artwork during the Land Art Weekend. Artists Liza Houben (KABK, The Hague), Mica Pan (Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam) and Eloy Cruz del Prado (Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam) take Daniel Libeskind's work as a starting point for their performances.

In Observatorium (Lelystad) Noortje Braat will perform a whispering performance on 4 June: "The puny human in an infinite space. And every night the sun goes down. And every morning it rises again. What to do?"

Sea Level (Zeewolde) is currently being restored. On Sunday, walk along the work of art with restorer Anne Rupert and check with her what needs to be repaired and why. De Verbeelding will be open during the weekend.

At PIER+HORIZON (Kraggenburg), the artist will be there on Saturday. Early this year, part of the artwork was blown away by storm Eunice. Paul de Kort will be present to talk about how he sees the future of this work of art.
