Zenne Atlas


For the exhibition A Particular Scenario I, Cat in Box at Corridor Project Space in Amsterdam, I presented the Zenne Atlas, a collection of photos, sounds and maps I made during my walk along the Zenne river.

Zenne Atlas is part of Transgression/Transition, an exploration of the Senne and its surroundings’, an ongoing research project on the Belgian Zenne river. In April 2015, the project started with a field research along the Senne by walking the 103 km course of the river. The
decades-long absence of a comprehensive and interregional planning policy, fueled by the ostrich politics of the three Belgian regions, has made the river into a ‘non-place’ or ‘fringe’. The Senne manifests itself as an area of transgression, meandering through city and countryside. At Corridor the project is presented in a new setup, focusing on the river as an archive of information and happenings.

‘A Particular Scenario’ was a three-series exhibition in which artists from Turkey and the Netherlands collaborated with a writer. The series focused on storytelling as practice in contemporary art and wandered through a different theme, respectively land, water and wind. The project intended to create a personal, aesthetic and political connection between the cities of Amsterdam and Istanbul.
