Futuristic and poetic, almost dreamlike images, provide insight into the enormous impact of technical innovation on the agricultural sector.
“When I was seven years old, I walked into an unfamiliar landscape for the first time. A greenhouse. All my senses were triggered by the moisture, heat and smell. I still remember this amazement. More than twenty years later, I capture these landscapes and depict the tension between man and machine. Futuristic and poetic, almost dreamlike images, provide insight into the enormous impact of technical innovation on the agricultural sector.” (Mirte van Duppen)
The video AgriValley is on show until October 29, 2023
Mirte van Duppen (1990, Tilburg) is a (video) artist with a graphic background. For her, filming is a way of thinking, a way of exploring unknown situations. In her films she analyzes the structures, functions and transformations of (urban) landscapes and the interaction of man with his environment. She uses reality (what we see) and fictional elements (what we imagine) as tools for analysis and composition. She studied at ArtEZ in Arnhem and Sandberg Institute (master) in Amsterdam.
