LANDING SITES

Cocky Eek has been invited by the Satellietgroep for an artist-in-residence at the ephemeral landscape of the Zandmotor. The Zandmotor is a man-made landscape in front of Monster/Kijkduin that will dissolve in about 15 years into sea, beach and dunes.

Right now, how can we grasp its wide-open space and the movement it contains in all its intensity? The body is always located in relation to the space that contains it. Space is something that is experienced in motion that first makes it appearance through movement. During this research period body and space are the materials that are set into relation to each other. At the Zandmotor we will explore and develop wearable interfaces to create new sensory relationships in which our inner landscape will converge with the landscape that surrounds us. The interfaces will stage us in our contemporary drama in which we are part of and separate from our environment.

Landing Sites is a project by Cocky Eek in collaboration with artist Matthijs Munnik and assisted by Geartsje van der Zee.

Landing Sites is a co-production of Schweigman& and Satellietgroep, financially supported by Stroom Den Haag.

Landing Sites will be presented at Oerol Festival 9-18 june 2017 at the Terschelling Island
and in September at the Zandmotor, Ter Heijde (the date will be comfirmed)

the process of Landing Sites can be followed at https://landingsites.wordpress.com/
