7 Walks (Placcaet)

Vermeir & Heiremans participate in this year’s edition of Kunst & Zwalm, Over/with/within/through Water

26-27/08, 2-3/09, 9-10/09/2023
Zwalm, Belgium

Kunst & Zwalm is a biennial art route in the Zwalm region organised by BOEM vzw since 1997. The project invites artists to work closely with the environment and to imagine a new landscape. For this edition, Loes Jacobs/nadine and Chris Rotsaert/manoeuvre take on the joint curatorship. Together with 18 artists/collectives, they set to work around ‘water’. The reality of the Zwalm river crossing the landscape but also the power and mystics of water, and its social debate, became the guiding principle for unique artistic trajectories.

Vermeir & Heiremans present 7 Walks (Placcaet), a project that builds on the concept of ‘plura dominia’ or the simultaneous use of the same resource by different entities, in this case water. Next to a small documentary exhibition at the Zwalmmolen, they will perform four walks, in the company of four guest walkers, each with a different expertise related to water and its many uses and users.

The four walks are accessible with an entrance ticket from Kunst & Zwalm, but registration is required (mail loes@nadine.be) as the number of people who can participate is limited.
Starting point for the walks: Zwalmmolen, Rekegemstraat 26, Zwalm
