As a prelude to Sculpture Network's XV. International Forum Sculpture & Climate Emergency in Malaga, 5 ‚Äď 7 October, we present two extraordinary sculpture venues, dedicated to recycling, bio art and our relation with the soil.¬†

Tineke Schuurmans NL is curator at the Verbeke Foundation BE which was founded 15 years ago by private collector Geert Verbeke. Discarded materials get a new life in collages and recycle art. Bio art is left to transform. Located in Kemzeke, at the outskirts of Antwerp, the Verbeke Foundation, is a cabinet of wonders, which happily marries art, biology, ecology and science. 

Director and curator Mieke Conijn NL founded the international IJsselbiennial NL to question the tension between man and nature in times of climate change. This years edition is dedicated to the earth, soil and ground. Grab your bike, and discover 27 monumental installations in a 120 km biking trail along the beautiful IJsselriver in the east of the Netherlands. 

Join our Zoom Meeting on Monday, 3 July, 20.00 CEST.

After the lectures get together and networking in smaller groups.
Curating and moderation by curator Anne Berk.

The event will be held in English. Participation is free of charge, all you need is a PC, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection. Please register with the button "Register Now" to receive the link to the Zoom meeting.

Tineke Schuurmans NL is curator at the Verbeke Foundation BE which was founded 15 years ago by private collector Geert Verbeke.

Wandering around the in and outdoor spaces of 12.000 square meter, in Kemzeke, at the outskirts of Antwerp, is an unforgettable experience. Materials are reused in collages and installations, ranging from elephants from driftwood, to discarded cranes. Bio art from living materials is subject to change. A dead cow in glass boxes, illuminates the process of decay and transformation. Things start to move.Everything is in a state of flux.The Verbeke Foundation is a cabinet of wonders, which happily marries art, biology, ecology and science. 

Director and curator Mieke Conijn NL founded the international IJsselbiennial NL to question the tension between man and nature, in the manmade landscape of the Netherlands, in times of climate change.

This years edition Ground Tones invites you to experience the earth, soil and ground.

Grab your bike, and discover 27 monumental installations and other art works, in a 120 biking trail along the beautiful IJsselriver in the east of the Netherlands.

The IJsselbiennial cooperates with over 100 partners in the region, connected by the river, ranging from cultural partners to developers, engineering firms and governmental organisations, to actively participate and exchange knowledge in the IJsselcongres.

17 June ‚Äď 17 September, 2023, along the IJssel River, NL.¬†
