Mijn werk gaat over percepties van tijd, materie, landschappen en klimaat. Ik verbind kunst en wetenschap met publiek en organiseer ontmoetingen met/in landschappen. Als proefondervindelijk of empirisch artistiek veldonderzoeker zoek ik veelzijdige en wederkerige perspectieven om een meer inclusief wereldbeeld te generen. Ik zet passie en nieuwsgierigheid, verwondering en verbeelding in, om een meer zinnelijke of affectieve relatie met elkaar en met de planeet mogelijk te maken.

My work is themed around perceptions of time, matter, landscapes and climate. I connect art and science with the public and organize meetings with/in landscapes. As an empirical artistic field researcher, I seek multifaceted and reciprocal perspectives to generate a more inclusive worldview. I include passion and curiosity, wonder and imagination, to enable a more sensitive and affectionate relationship with each other, with otherness and with the planet.

Artistic statement: 

The time of the earth is not (yet) in our senses. 
Faced with current and future environmental challenges, we need to develop a new view of the planet and of the self. With a practice in the arts and cultural heritage I tend to perceive the world from an artistic perspective, with a focus on perceptions of the history of nature and future of humanity. Working, and making public programs with a wide range of artists, designers, audiences, local experts and scientists, I seek ways to include the non-human narrative, the pre-human history of nature. This helps me to provoke new ideas about the origins of both the natural and the artifactual, to enhance a deeper professional and public sensibility of their interconnectivity, of the time-depth of landscapes and matter, climate, earth and atmosphere, and of ourselves as human agency.
I am convinced that the arts can offer alternative subjectivities for the way we inhabit Earth by creating different worldviews, that includes the past, present and future. 

Bio:

Jacqueline Heerema (Netherlands, 1958) is a Dutch conceptual artist, creator, mediator and independent (sub)urban artist-curator. She studied Monumental Art at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague, followed by Environment at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague, and Theoretical Museology at Leiden University. Jacqueline is fascinated by the construction of ‘time’ and changing perceptions of value systems, which we often take for granted.
Her work arises in-between images and words, landscapes and matter, works of art and people, time and climate. She addresses concepts of ‘worldmaking’ and notions of timescaping, matterscaping, landscaping and climatescaping to offer an alternative strategy for the way in which we relate to each other, with the other and with otherness. She focusses on the in-between-ness of the natural and the artifactual to create space for reciprocity and polyphony in a changing world.  

Jacqueline initiates, develops, facilitates and supervises artistic field research, ephemeral interventions, exhibitions and large-scale projects in the public domain and creates ‘art as public space’. She is the inventor of Innovatory Heritage, in which the understanding of heritage shifts from static/exclusive to dynamic/inclusive. She transformed a residential area into ‘Museum Oostwijk’ (2002-2009) and deconstructed institutional museology in ‘The Chamber of Marvels’ (2008-2009). 

Jacqueline enhances dialogues between the arts, sciences and society. She creates conceptual and programmatic conditions for international artist-in-residency programs and public programs for various target groups with artistic field research, public expeditions, exhibitions, debates and workshops. Her network consists of artists, designers, filmmakers, architects, landscape architects, scientists in the fields of ecology, climate, geology, archeology, oceanography, philosophy, zoology, botany, culture, cultural and natural heritage and spatial planning. She engages with pupils and students and collaborates with art academies, universities, policymakers and citizens scientists. She regularly gives talks at home and abroad in areas that are often far beyond the realm of the arts, to enhance discourse between the arts, design and different knowledge domains and with the public. 

Among her recent art projects are ‘The becoming, The being & The meanwhile – subsurface as living climate archive’, themed around a constructed swamp called Land in Wording, Amstelpark Amsterdam. She reconstructed the Genesis and performed the public intervention Onland (2019), found an 17th century artifact and sourced subsurface soils with a depth of 10 meters and a time-depht of approx. 6.000 years, exhibited Breath of Soils(s) in context of a public program (Zone2Souce, 2020), followed by Soft Soils (VU, CLUE+, essay 2021, exhibition at Arti et Amicitiae is due to COVID postponed to 2022) and the concept of ‘aardtijd’ (Zone2Source, EKWC, 2021-ongoing).

In 2020 Jacqueline was artist-in-resident at EKWC, the international centre-of-excellence for ceramics. She had noticed at the intersection of art, paleontology, geology and archeology a parallel in the becoming of a fossil and of ceramic techniques, like a mold, cast or imprint, and the understanding of climate as temperature, humidity, etc. in parallel to the working of a kiln. With fragments of Mammoth fossils (sourced at Zandmotor), she developed hybrid materials – in-between a fossil and an artifact – called North Sea Fossils Porcelain, -Celadon and -Sigillata, eventually successfully 3-d printed with Mammoth fossil matter and created a series of ‘fossil fragments |ceramic shards’. She presented sedi | senti |ment during Test Case XII.
For the second residency in 2021 she collaborated with the Natural History Museum Rotterdam and explored the concept of re-sourcing with ceramic artifacts of Iron Age cooking pottery shards (sourced in The Hague dunes), with special thanks to The Hague Archeology and AWN (Volunteers is Archeology). Experimentally she discovered a kinship between different entities, which either repel or attract each other. She calls this ‘residual intimacy’. She presented re-cast as repository | residual intimacy during Test Case XXIV.

As part of her artistic practice Jacqueline initiated Satellietgroep (The Hague, 2006) and is artist-curator since then. Satellietgroep is an artists’ collective that explores the reciprocal relations of humanity and nature from an artistic perspective, with a focus on the sea, (coastal) landscape transitions, climate and the impact of humanity on the environment in the Netherlands and abroad. 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. 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. 
As founder of artists collective Satellietgroep she initiated and curated international artist-in-residency exchange programs (2009-2019) with a focus on the sea, coastal transitions and climate: Badgast (urban beach resort Scheveningen), Now Wakes The Sea (Croatia, Malta, Japan, Scotland, Lithuania, New York City, Russia, Moldova, Georgia, Turkey), DCR Gueststudios (urban), Zandmotor (building with nature). The works are collected and presented in The Anthropogenic Coastal Atlas worldwide.
Recent 5 months artistic field research, followed by 5 months of DIY public participations called Who is Dommel? – themed around a Dutch rain river valley – draws attention to the interconnectivity of time with climate, of geodiversity with sociodiversity, hydrodiversity and biodiversity (commissioned by Waterschap De Dommel, KunstLoc Brabant, Landschapstriënnale, 2021).

In 2019-2020, Jacqueline was artistic researcher at University Twente, Dept. Water Management to develop a new education curriculum 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. 

She wrote the reflexive essay of 10 years artistic field research with Zandmotor, ‘Pioneering Zandmotor – Zandmotor as source to rethink anthropogenic coastal modifications of cultural public space’, published in Research by Urbanism, University Delft Publishers (2021). She gave an artist talk at the international Coastal Dynamics Conference at TU Delft and developed a series of Public Field Lessons on time, sea and climate (2021).

Since 2015 she is volunteer of AWN, the Dutch Association of Volunteers in Archeology. 
Chair of De Onkruidenier Foundation since 2019.
In 2022 she became chair of Dutch-Belgian Klimaatdichters Foundation.

Projects are commissioned or funded by Stroom Den Haag, Mondriaan Fonds, DOEN, Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie and more.
