The BonneFanten Hedge Foundation invited Dirty Beach, in collaboration with Plastic Soup Foundation and EkoPlaza, to install the Amsterdam Soupermarket at Kasteel Wijlre. Dirty Beach always uses locally sourced plastics where possible, so a brand new section, created from plastic collected by volunteers from the nearby Maas River, is also part of the installation.
The Soupermarket at Kasteel Wijlre, a prestigious contemporary art venue near Maastricht, is shown in conjunction with 'Bottle River' by Stephen Wilks and selected works in 'Rearranged' from the private collection of castle owners, Jo and Marlies Eyck, including pieces by Richard Long & Tony Cragg. "Our current programme about 'Water, Plastic and Collecting' stems upon the immense influence of plastic in our waters. The presentations in the Hedge House and Koetshuis show us how different generations of artists respond to one of the biggest socio-political issues of our time, with works by Richard Long and Carel Visser in the exhibition REARRANGED, the installation 'Bottle River (Vessels)' by Stephen Wilks in the Hedge House and the TruCost Super-M-Art by Dirty Beach." - Director, BonneFanten Hedge Foundation.
The exhibition is supported by an extensive educational programme - you can download the educational materials (in Dutch) here.
