Tanja Engelberts - Hollow
  • Video
  • 00:13:22
  1. 13/6/2021

Hollow is a portrait of an artificial Dutch island. It is shaped like a ring dike and serves as a dumping ground for contaminated sludge from Dutch waters that contain toxic substances. In this first video work the camouflage techniques that depict the island as an idyllic nature reserve are explored, as well as the monotony of actual islands making and the dumping of dredged material. The island is a vehicle for Engelberts to develop a speculative vision of the
future in text and image in which she, by thinking through geological time, wonders what happens to processes that people set in motion, but which have consequences that will manifest themselves long after our own deaths.
