Atelier NL: Earth Alchemy – 15 Years of Digging
Retrospective exhibition Atelier NL
How do we recognise what is really valuable in a society full of luxury and abundance? Which knowledge can we gain from our surroundings and how do we learn to better use and appreciate materials from our everyday lives? These and many more questions are answered by Atelier NL in the fascinating exhibition Earth Alchemy – 15 Years of Digging.
Earth Alchemy – 15 Years of Digging presents Atelier NL’s first retrospective exhibition at the museum van Bommel van Dam. For over a decade, Nadine Sterk (1977, Gorinchem) and Lonny van Ryswyck (1978, Venlo) have been engaging with local communities, showcasing the narratives of the earth and all that it produces. By thoroughly analysing clay, sand and wood, and processing them into, for example, ceramics or glass utensils, Atelier NL aims to restore the vital connection between people and the world we live in.
