Edible landscape (2009)
With Eetbaar Landschap Ester van de Wiel set about improving the accessibility of Tilburg’s former Moerenburg sewer pumping station, which the city government had identified as a potential arts incubator. In researching local materials and knowledge, she found that food could serve as an overarching principle for learning to read the landscape. She invited selected artists and designers to create “spatial prostheses” that would bring the area to life. Elements they devised included a field kitchen (Elmo Vermijs), a mobile brewery (Henriëtte Waal) and an archaeological kitchen garden (Maarten Kolk)
