During the opening night the installation of ceramic sculptures will be activated to serve specific dishes and other enriching experiences. Both the tasting recipes and ceremonial settings are inspired or refer to traditions and local narratives from seaweed communities around the world.
21:00-22:00 - Performance Out of the Blue by Silke Huysmans & Hannes Dereere / CAMPO
After their acclaimed performances Mining Stories and Pleasant Island, Silke Huysmans & Hannes Dereere present the final part of their trilogy on mining. This time they focus on a completely new industry: deep sea mining. With resources on land becoming increasingly scarce and overexploited, mining companies turn towards the ocean. Through a series of interviews and conversations, an intimate portrait of this new industry emerges.
The exhibition is freely accessible, no ticket needed. For the performance a ticket (€9 (-26y) or €12) must be purchased here.
