Please join us on a visit to the exhibition ‘Still Waters Run Deep’ at art gallery Nieuw Dakota.
Still Waters Run Deep is an exhibition about the interaction between humans and water. Water is vital to life on planet Earth. It covers much of the Earth’s surface in oceans, rivers, lakes and seas, and appears as groundwater, glaciers and clouds. It is captured in political and cultural phenomena, such as drinking and wastewater systems, aquariums and swimming pools. Crucially, water also flows through us to hydrate and fuel cells, organs and tissue and we shed it as tears. Still Waters Run Deep explores how the fundamental connection between humanity and nature, water in particular, can take on a more central role in our conceptions and actions.
Nieuw Dakota is an exhibition space for contemporary art in Amsterdam-Noord. Marlies Augustijn, curator of the exhibition, will receive us and host a guided tour. This visit precedes the symposium ‘Sink or Swim. Searching for a sustainable relationship with water’, and will therefore form a great introduction to the symposium if you would like to attend this afterwards!
