This book is part of Tekenen in Vlassenbroek (2014-15), an art project by Wapke Feenstra (Myvillages), commissioned by the Vlaams Bouwmeester and Waterwegen & Zeekanaal in association with the Municipality of Dendermonde.
Landscapes are elusive. They defy every attempt to commit them to paper. Rising sea levels and the inevitable heavy rainfall make Flanders a very dangerous place during spring tide. Government agencies and engineering firms work hard to keep the water in check. The River Schelde gets more space, dikes are moved… in a constantly shifting panorama.Time to picture the scene. Everyone is drawing; artists, civil engineers, landscape architects… even fishers are taking notes.
