Hydromedia: Seeing with Water
The exhibition Hydromedia: Seeing with Water features new work by four artists, created as part of an international research project in which HKU participates. Mariko Hori (JP/NL), Alexandra Crouwers (NL/BE), Meng-Chan Yu (TW/DE) and Sanne Vaassen (NL) conducted research in the city and province of Utrecht in October 2023, under the guidance of curators Taco Hidde Bakker and Sjoerd Knibbeler (both working as lecturers at HKU Media), which included exchanges with ecologists, engineers and scientists who deal with water issues in very different fields.

Using water as a source of inspiration and as a medium, Hydromedia develops new artistic representations through which our relationship to the elements and the biosphere can be experienced from within. Sharing research processes and methods through accessible publications, exhibitions and workshops, allows the public to understand how the artist’s imagination can contribute to the profound ecological issues of our time.

A previous edition of Hydromedia took place in Antwerp (KASK), and after the Utrecht edition, Karlsruhe (HfG) will take over for the third chapter. A final exhibition by the end of 2024 at the Museum of Science and Technology in Dresden (DE) will collect the works of all twelve artists.

Opening: Friday 16 February 5:00 PM
The exhibition is open from 17 February/3 March.
Wednesday/Sunday: 1:00 – 6:00 PM
