As the water said to the lake is a film made in collaboration with Frans-Willem Korsten and Sjoerd Westbroek during a residency at Kunsthuis SYB in Beetsterzwaag (NL).

Is it ever truly possible to be in the landscape that surrounds you, to be one with it, so to say? Landscape is, first of all, an image, it is an art-historical category, a thing that is shaped by cultural and political ideals, as much as it is real and living matter. Landscape is out there, it confronts you and you can encounter it in a physical way in relation to your bodily self, yet, at the same time it is a product of complex systems of values that work in a subtle, often unnoticed manner. Landscape is a complex idea, for, presumably, it exists in a dialectics of a concrete location and cultural ideals. However, it is exactly such a binary opposition that we seek to problematize in our film ‘As the lake said to the boat’. Kunsthuis SYB. Link to film
