Stadsmuseum Woerden had invited 8 contemporary artists to visualize the relationship between people and water in our region. The artists all live and work in the Netherlands, but have diferent nationalities and backgrounds. They work in disciplines ranging from photography, video art, painting and textile art to installations and 3 dimensional work.
They've al given thought about the thema. About men's frantic attempts to control and utilize water, but also about the danger and the power of water. The history of our water-rich country teaches that total control over water is an illusion. One wonders wether, instead of starting from a makeable nature, we should strive to live with nature and allow space for water.
