— For the tenth time, Stichting Beelden op de Berg is organizing an international exhibition in the Arboretum Belmonte in Wageningen. The curator Koos Flinterman and co-curator Krijn Christiaansen have chosen two themes for this edition that are central to both contemporary visual art and science: authenticity and manipulation.
The results include a fifteen-metre-long chicken run with two pheasant-like primeval chickens from the Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen’s Cosmopolitan Chicken Project; a film by Barbara Visser about the deserted tropical greenhouse near the arboretum; a series of tomato plants growing between thin sheets of perspex, a bio-printer, and modified historic audio recordings of African music.
Curators: Koos Flinterman and co-curators Krijn Christiaansen and Marieke Berkers
Participants: Maria Barnas (NL), Stefaan Dheedene (B), Driessens & Verstappen (NL), Nick Ervinck (B), Tue Greenfort (DK), Agency (Int.), Simon Martin (UK), Koen Vanmechelen (B), and Barbara Visser (NL).
