(H)EAR IN COLLABORATION WITH INTRO IN SITU (NL)
For decades, the peat meadow area in Friesland has had to deal with one or two centimeters of subsidence per year. The cause of this subsidence in ‘Het Lage Midden’ is the deepwater drainage policy of the province of Friesland. In ‘FEAN’ we look with poet Jan Kleefstra and landscape architect Peter de Ruyter at the consequences and possible solutions for this radical, social issue.
‘FEAN’ is artist in residence of Klanklânskippen, a multidisciplinary breeding ground and stage for experiment with the Frisian landscape as a source of inspiration. The artistic team of this project is formed by Piiptsjilling; the musicians Mariska Baars, Jan Kleefstra, Romke Kleefstra and Rutger Zuydervelt. They have invited three Belgian musicians for their residency. The jazz clarinetist and saxophone player Joachim Badenhorst, known for his improvisations. The French Sylvain Chauveau, who lives in Belgium: he makes minimal compositions for acoustic instruments, electronics and vocals. And Annelies Monseré, whose work was initially based on piano and instrumental pieces, but in which singing became a focal point. Musically, she experiments with various instruments such as cello, guitar, xylophone and melodica.
This event is a collaboration between (h)ear, intro in situ and meakusma
