Harbor of action and research at sea

10 July/2 August Corridor PS

During the summer 2020 the Foundation for Clandestine Ideas will take refuge in the Corridor Project Space in Amsterdam. Our artist’s group will reflect upon the topic of ocean migration and freedom of movement by opening a temporary ‘Harbour of Action and Research at Sea’. Based on contemporary overseas migration we aim to draw a sanctuary sailing passage that links the Netherlands to England via the North Sea. A group of sea-oriented academics, citizens, artists and activists will develop collaborations, concepts and exchange of knowledge around the potential of minimalist sailing navigation. It will become on the one hand an open platform for artists and academics working on the concept of freedom of movement. And on another hand, an entrance free laboratory dedicated to boat building, sail making, emergency celestial navigation and practical navigation.

Our curator for this project will be Aude Mgba, She is an independent curator based in Amsterdam, recently she was participant of the De Appel 2018/19 curatorial Programme. She is curator at Espace doual’art, an independent center of contemporary art, which produces specific artistic interventions in the urban space of Douala, Cameroon. Suzanne Bernhardt graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam and her works often relate to social sculpture and how the practice of arts creates new potential within a community. Olivier Delebecque graduated from the Master of Film at the Film Academy Amsterdam and his practice explores the relation between documentary film and visual arts. His work is based on symbolic journeys and potential voyages. Alonso Vazquez is a sound artist graduated at the Studio for Immediate Spaces at Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam. His recent sound explorations dive between deep-long underwater field recordings and ambient sounds inspired by oceanic wild-life. He is the founder of Oceanic Sound Art a new art that monitors wildlife migration sounds.
