“Jij bént een archief | You áre an archive”, commented Suzan Drummen, artist and fellow artist-in-resident at EKWC.


CONCEPTUAL | CONTEXT
education, inspiration


I studied Monumental Art and Environment at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague and Theoretical Museology at Leiden University.

inspiration:

‘…onze planeet, de enige tuin in het heelal..’ schreef Joop Beljon in ‘Twaalf omgevingen’ in 1976.
“… our planet, the only garden in the universe ..” Joop Beljon wrote in ‘Twelve environments’ in 1976.
Joop Beljon (1922-2002) was a Dutch artist, sculptor, teacher, writer, inspirator, for 27 years director of Royal Academy of the Art The Hague and my tutor at the department of Environment. His national and international public art works provoke a sense of urban geography as he perceived emerging cities and landscapes 50 years ahead of time. 

Isamu Noguchi, American-Japanese sculptor (1904–1988):
‘Nature makes rocks. Man makes stones’
‘to be hybrid anticipates the future’

One and All Chairs, Jacqueline Heerema, 2021. Questioning the ecological footprint of art itself.


STAGED AUTHENTICITY
inventor of Innovatory Heritage


I invented the concept of Innovatory Heritage, in which the understanding of heritage shifts from static/exclusive to dynamic/inclusive. I transformed a residential area into ‘Museum Oostwijk’ (2002-2009) and deconstructed institutional museology in ‘The Chamber of Marvels’ (2008-2009). 

in 2013 I was invited to share my artistic insights during in the artist talk ‘Can art contribute to new concepts of heritage, museums, collections and society?‘ Invited by COMCOL at ICOMRio2013 (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2013).
(Expected) Innovatory Heritage, essay, author, selected to be published in Innovate Heritage, conversations in between art and heritage, Springer Publishers.


1996 – ongoing:
Anekdotische Plaatsbepalingen | Anecdoctical Whereabouts
art in public space, art as public space


In haar kunst onderzoekt Heerema de vervreemding en verwondering in de verhalen van alledaagse dingen om ons heen: zij noemt dit anekdotische plaatsbepalingen. Er ontstaan geen beelden voor de eeuwigheid, maar tijdelijke, veranderlijke en prikkelende situaties die geënsceneerd worden binnen de dagelijkse werkelijkheid.

In her art Heerema explores the alienation and wonder in the stories of everyday things around us: she calls this anecdotal whereabouts. These are no images for eternity, but ephemeral, shifting and stimulating situations that are staged within everyday reality.


2001: Schommel, Swing


I put a swing in an opened window frame to question the role of art (institutions) in the public domain. A surreal and efemeral public intervention at exhibition space TENT, Witte de Withstraat Rotterdam (NL)


2001-2005: Ik noem haar Roos


Art projects and public interventions themed around constructions of identity.
‘Ik noem haar Roos – I call her ROOS’ is a reconstruction of a childhood memory. Over a period of 5 years, ROOS developed as an artistic alter-ego, questioning the makability of identity.

2008- 2009: De Wonderkamer van Zoetermeer | The Chamber of Marvels of Zoetermeer


Can art contribute to new concepts of heritage, museums, collections and society?

I deconstructed institutional museology in ‘The Chamber of Marvels of Zoetermeer‘. In short, ‘The Chamber of Marvels of Zoetermeer‘ is about desire for identity and raises questions about a possible construction of identity in a so-called New Town Zoetermeer. A collection of 88 objects and stories donated by residents around their perceptions of ‘Home’ became the subject of research into the significance of this collection for the Zoetermeer City Museum, residents and the city. The interactive program consisted of a series of workshops, master classes and a final debate on the meaning of objects and stories. During the program visual artists, writers, scientists and museum professionals together with the donators explored the ‘Zoetermeer 2008 Collection’ together with the audience. What usually takes place behind the scenes, happened during ‘The Chamber of Marvels of Zoetermeer‘ publicly in the museum hall, in the middle of the exhibition. Every step in the process of an object and story being transferred into a museum object as part of a collection was researched in 4 phases: 
The naked object, The speaking object, Object speed dating and Beyond the object
In the first phase we focused on observation, what do you see when you look at an isolated object? In the second phase we focused on perception: how does a story add to the meaning of the object? In the third phase we focused on composition and cohesion, what do all these objects and stories mean together? And the final phase centered around transformation, has the public research of this community collection added meaning and understanding to the locals, the museum, the town?
The project resulted in a catalogue called ‘4289’ as it became the final contribution to the collection of the City Museum. 1200 publications were sent to all museums, heritage and education institutions in the Netherlands. The project was presented at numerous conferences. I was invited to share my artistic insights during my talk ‘Can art contribute to new concepts of heritage, museums, collections and society?‘ for COMCOL at ICOMRio2013 (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2013).


2002 – 2009: Museum Oostwijk, Vlaardingen


Everybody is a director and curator of a museum.

I transformed a residential area into ‘Museum Oostwijk’. The roles of museum and public have been reversed here. A project about the archeology of the present: a different approach to culture, cultural heritage and cultural identity, from residential area to museum, from concept to collection. The first object of Museum Oostwijk was a Cookie Jar. 300 Cookie Jars were introduced at the opening of the museum as a symbol, a homely metaphor for the sense of feeling at home, of connecting.
Museum Oostwijk was an investigation of perceptions of cultural identity of the residents in Oostwijk, part of a Dutch town. An urban area consisting of 10.000 inhabitants of all social economic levels and with multiple origins. The town mayor and the Turkish guest worker who sweeps the streets live in this small community. A rather quiet and friendly urban area with no big issues. Interesting, because somehow this multi layered community figured out a way to handle social and ethnic differences? How do they do it? 
Starting from the concept that everybody is a director and curator of a museum I converted this urban neighboorhood into Museum Oostwijk and shifted the established construction of formal museums 180 degrees by stating that everybody and everything in this area is part of the collection of the Museum. All persons, young or old, their dreams, hopes, memories and expectations became part of the collection. The inhabitants became the directors, curators and guides of the Museum. Artists and experts were invited to work with the inhabitants to research and disclose this collection. 
After 7 years we documented the project in a catalogue that was spread house-to-house in all 3500 households, thus transferring the immaterial collection back to the community. 30% of 10.000 residents participated in projects of the Museum. The material collection became part of the Vlaardingen City Archive, to be explored by future (art) historians. Recently Oostwijk became an urban conservation area.

2002-2006: WindMee, Zuid-Holland


Curator for a fresh approach of an art cycle route, as mental and physical displacement. A 65-kilometer biking route along the North Sea and Waterweg, between Rotterdam, Hoek van Holland and The Hague, the existing art, heritage and culture in this coastal landscape, and interactions with the public were the three starting points for temporary art projects. In 2004, the existing works of art and cultural-historical landmarks were supplemented for the first time with 6 contemporary public art projects. These projects shaped a new programmatic line along which the public could move and provided fascinating access to the readability of the South Holland cultural landscape.
Conceptual frame work i.c.w. Esther Didden, Ingrid van Santen.
Participating artists: Saskia Janssen, Sjaak Langenberg & Rosé de Beer, Adriaan Nette, Esther Polak, Zeger Reyers, Barbara Visser.

2019-2020: Beyond Technology


In 2019-2020, I was artistic researcher at University Twente, Dept. Water Management to develop a new education pilot for art and engineering students. This initiative is called ‘Beyond Technology’ and developed i.c.w. Art & Design Academy ArtEZ. It stems from the need to approach upcoming challenges in the environment from a versatile perspective by bridging the gap between the arts and humanities/social sciences and the natural/technological sciences.

2018: Climate as Artifact – Klimaat als mensenwerk


In 2018, Satellietgroep posed the question Who is nature? With the exhibition program ‘Climate as Artifact – Klimaat als mensenwerk’, Satellietgroep positioned dialogue about climate and the impact of humanity as a geological force in the cultural domain cultural domain, as an artifact, as something we make. During 5 weeks, every week we shift the focus within the whole exhibitionprocess, with ongoing artistic productions and with a program of workshops, seminars and expeditions. Visitors have the opportunity to connect and contribute to the ongoing process of artistic research, share their thoughts and insights, and discover through the arts a multitude of fields of knowledge. Materializing ideas through art and redefining climate as an artifact, as something we make, helps to increase our sensitivity and to see connections within the natural world and between our actions and our environment. 
Participating artists, designers engaged with experts in the fields of nature, climate, geology, archeology, oceanography, philosophy, zoology, botany and spatial planning — as well as a canoe builder from the Marshall Islands — who actively contributed to the making of new art works and public dialogues.

2018: Zeelab # 1-5


Zeelab #1 Uptime_ icw exhibition space Nest.
The human desire to understand abstractions leads to new inventions, critical research and a poetic contemplation of our environment. In the midst of art and design, in the specially designed exhibition for Festival Designkwartier, Uptime is dedicated to makers who question current systems of thought and who allow collective truths to falter, because the future demands radically different systems. In a series of lectures, interviews and interventions, designers and artists enter into discussions with scientists. After each program component there is room for questions and debate.

2018: Who is nature?


Pre-program of Climate as Artifact. Essay by Lotte Bosman and Jacqueline Heerema, published in ‘The urbanization of the sea’. This book tells the story of the sea-land continuum based on the case of the North Sea with versatile projects from academia, art, literature and practice, from analysis to design. Published by nai010 publishers.


2018: Sources & Resources, Terschelling – Praputnjak, Croatia


Sources & Resources, Praputnjak (Croatia). A bilateral cultural exchange project that targets at learning and sharing perceptions of locality and time of the cultural-natural environment of Terschelling (Wadden Sea, Netherlands) and Praputnjak (Bakar Bay, Croatia). Sand and Karst landscapes, that can both be perceived as ‘sponge’ landscapes. The project is part of Tandem Fryslân, co-developed by Leeuwarden-Fryslân European Capital of Culture 2018, European Cultural Foundation, MitOst and Rijeka European Capital of Culture 2020.

I made the video work: A hole in the Sea, Bakar Bay


2017: Destination Highway Afsluitdam


The man-made Afsluitdijk (1932) is sourced as innovative milestone of geological time, landmark for climate change and highway for migration. Relict of relocated raw materials and species. Glaciers deposited till and humanity creates new conditions for iconic rare species: a rock shore habitat for migrating plants, animals and humans, in between two Natura 2000 habitats.
Participating artists: Jacqueline Heerema, Francois Lombarts, Lotte Bosman (Satellietgroep), guest artist Hugo Schuitemaker.


2017: Prospectors, 3 Layers of Landscape, Intersections Art Rotterdam


A non-romantic approach of artistic manual labour; of art as durational research methodology, disseminating the raw materials of the roles we play as observers, actors, explorers and prospectors of liminal landscapes. With the tools we need, with the landscape ingredients, archives and lexicons we collect, and with the insights we discover and share while interacting within these open air public landscape laboratories and people. Funded by Stroom and Squat Deluxe.
Participating artists: Jacqueline Heerema, Francois Lombarts (Satellietgroep), Ronald Boer, Jonmar van Vlijmen (Onkruidenier), guest artists Lotte Bosman and Flora Reznik.


2017: Tuinieren zonder Grenzen, Gardening without Borders, Oerol, Terschelling


An inquiry into the friction between indigenous and invasive species, into the dissension between the protection and development of nature on the one hand, and the conservation of cultivated land on the other. By uniting different extracts from the landscape into new products, sacred lines are breached and new questions arise concerning authenticity, nature and culture on the island.
Participating artists: Jacqueline Heerema, Francois Lombarts, Lotte Bosman (Satellietgroep), Ronald Boer, Jonmar van Vlijmen (Onkruidenier).


2014-2015: walking all the shores of The Netherlands | The Anthropogenic Coastal Atlas


Artistic researcher of The Anthropogenic Coastal Atlas, Part 1. Artistic research into the hybrid relationship of humanity and man-made nature: understanding climate change through innovatory heritage, public appropriations and storytelling. With the prospect of climate change, rising sea level, dis-balance of salt and fresh water, shifting ecologies and geopolitical strategies, migrations of people and species, pressures of tourism and energy supplies we face major coastal transitions worldwide. Transitions that may lead to conflicts, estrangements, loss of heritage and loss of more informal cultural uses of public coastal space. Understanding these processes involves disclosing new visual narratives, as the vital links for unlocking knowledge and insights of the perception of history (where we come from) and the challenges we face (where we are going).

2013: Stellingname – Water, land & innovatory heritage


Do we resist, adapt or develop new positions?

As guest-curator for Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen I developed a manifestation which 10 artists, local experts and scientists, who worked together to develop ‘subjective cartography’ for new positions in our approach to water, land and heritage. The Haarlemmermeerpolder is subject to constant change due to economic and ecological dynamics. Once a dangerous inland sea (so-called Water Wolf), the current landscape of the Haarlemmermeer is characterized by an accumulation of natural, social, military and hydraulic engineering history. In this layered cultural landscape, current tensions arise due to economic expansions of Schiphol Airport with a new dyke landscape against noise pollution, the ongoing need for space for housing and recreation, salinization of the polder due to saline groundwater seepage and ‘reverse flooding’ for fresh water storage, rising rivers and land subsidence. Icw Kadir van Loohuizen (photographer), Ine Geevers (curator Ja Natuurlijk), Peter van Mensch (museologist), Charlotte Geldof (architect, Future Commons 2070).

2014- now: Zandgast, Zandmotor


Artist-curator for Satellietgroep of 5 years artist-in-residency and Public Expedition programs called Zandgast, to explore the Zandmotor as cultural phenomenon. Zandmotor is a coastal pilot near The Hague that uses the principles of ‘Building with Nature’. This innovative project aims to generate new knowledge in times of climate change and relative sea level rise for future coastal protection. An innovation, built on the foreshore in 2011 with 21,5 million cubic meters of sand. The Zandmotor is the only Dutch area outside the dikes that is exposed to the tides and wind, built to transform and even assimilate around 2030 in sea, beach and dunes. The result is a dynamic extension of the coast, a new controlled post-natural ‘wilderness’. The Zandmotor is an publicly accessible open air scientific and artistic laboratory.

2014-2015: Satellietgroep initiated i.c.w. Province South Holland a cultural strategy for Zandgast, the proposed new visitor center and artist-in-residency on and about the Zandmotor as cultural phenomenon. Overtreders W, Rob Sweere and RAAAF (Rietveld Architecture-Art-Affordance) were selected for the first designs of Zandgast. Aimed at sharing new works and insights of the coexistence of humanity and the sea to enhance public and professional climate-consciousness.

2016: Zandmotor ZandGlas by Atelier NL, the first of a series of ZandGlas.

2006-2009 Satellieteiland, where art is the first form of life, nomadic


In January 2006, awareness that the North Sea may be perceived as a construction site or energy landscape to fit our needs instigated artists collective Satellietgroep to question ‘To whom belongs the sea?’ The initiative was triggered by the remarkable lack of involvement of arts, culture and heritage in the master plans for coastal transitions in The Netherlands, especially in The Hague, with top down reconstructions for urban beach resorts Scheveningen and Kijkduin and with the prospect of islands in front of the coast. Prospects of innovative engineering that raise questions about modifying public cultural space.
With this concept, Satellietgroep kicked off in 2006 with a fake news article ‘Kunst beschermt kust’ (Art protects coast). In anticipation of the future coastal expansions, the collective conceptually appropriated one of the artificial islands. A 3-year nomadic program evolved.
