06 March 2019 12:00 till 31 March 2019 12:00 - Location: education room Force and Resilience
From the 6th to 31th of March there will be the photo exposition: The Mangrove from Linnea Frandsen in the eductionroom Force and Resillience.
‘Up until 2004 25% of the Mangroves was cut down due to infrastructure and tourism in coastal areas.
The damage of the 2004 South East Asia tsunami was worsened because the Mangroves was not there to protect the coasts. Due to anthropogenic climate change, water levels will keep rising and the Mangroves are increasingly important. Now part of the Mangroves are in the protecting hands of the people who once cut them down.
My work is a visual exploration of the Mangroves, as well as an investigation of their resilience. By isolating and bending the Mangroves, I merge human intervention with the Mangroves’ natural force. This is an artistic interpretation of the complex relation between human and nature.’
Linnea is a photography student at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten Den Haag.
