Noorderlicht International Photo Festival 2018
IN VIVO | the nature of nature
23 June - 23 September * Museum Belvédère, Heerenveen
IN VIVO | extended
14 juli - 2 september
* Zaailand Shopping Centre, Leeuwarden
The 25th Noorderlicht International Photography Festival takes place from 23rd June until 23rd September in Museum Belvédère in Heerenveen and examines our ambiguous relationship with nature. IN VIVO takes its inspiration from a rich tradition of a love for nature and shows images of a confrontational beauty, which upon closer examination expose the extent to which our experience of nature is directed by economic, social and cultural shifts.
Thirty photographers from eleven different countries show us their view on the experience of nature, an essential part of our identity. Research has shown that nature has a positive influence on our health, lowers stress and stimulates creativity. Nature is therefore a significant contributing factor to our well-being, however cultivated it is. IN VIVO challenges the viewer to look in a different, layered way at the living experiment we call nature.
IN VIVO | extended
14 July - 2 September,
Zaailand Shopping Centre, Leeuwarden
The satellite exhibition IN VIVO | extended presents eleven Dutch photographers who look upon nature with an investigative and surveying gaze. We see the sense of beauty and drama that the Dutch landscape evokes in them, timeless textures in rocks and trees that refer to a nature greater than ourselves, as well as results ensuing from the hunt for pieces of found nature.
OASE ORANJEWOUD | nature and focus
23 June - 23 September, Museum Belvédère, Heerenveen
For this new edition of the annual international festival, Noorderlicht has opted for an experiment in form. The splendid Museum Belvédère, where we are exhibiting as guests with IN VIVO, is simultaneously showing OASE ORANJEWOUD | nature and focus, which enters into a dialogue with our festival. Two exhibitions become one, yet at the same time each tells its own story.
Opening on Saturday 23 June - guest speaker Caspar Janssen
On Saturday 23rd June at 16:00, the festival will be opened by Kees van der Meiden, director of Noorderlicht and Han Steenbruggen, director of Museum Belvédère. Accompanied by guest speaker Caspar Janssen, known for his Volkskrant column 'Caspar Loopt'.
IN VIVO also kicks off a new phenomenon: the Noorderlicht Summer, the common denominator for all projects taking place between 23rd June and 23rd September at Noorderlicht and on location. With an exhibition of Ruben Terlou, a visual prologue for Aida by Opera Spanga, the guest exhibition ‘De Markt’ by Rein Scholte, a project in Ghana and much more. Check our website.
