Vlassenbroek _________ Broekkant
Due to rising sea levels, the landscape between Vlassenbroek and Broekkant in Belgium is fast returning to its original ecology as a riverbed. Inspired by this elusive landscape, Tekenen in Vlassenbroek—a new artist’s project from Wapke Feenstra, co-founder of Myvillages—documents its shifting panorama in a collection of drawings by local workers, fishermen, engineers, architects, artists and visitors to the site. These varied and personal sketches, following in the plein air tradition of the area, render the fleeting landscape much as painters and sketch artists did in the last century. As this part of Belgium once again becomes mud flats and marshes, Feenstra gently records the process in this unique publication. Myvillages is an active international artist collective addressing the evolving relationship between rural and urban in a variety of forms of production.
