about ditches, dunes, Schouwen-Duiveland
The Municipal Museums of Zierikzee
organized the exhibition "over ditches, dunes, Schouwen-Duiveland"
from 21 June to 31 August in De Vierschaar of the City Hall Museum.
In March and April 2003 Marinus van Dijke (1952, Haamstede) started tin e dunes behind the lighthouse of Westerschouwen followed the ditch downstream to the polder. He followed wide canals and ditches until he could pass through a transition. He went with the aid of a wrist stick over not too wide ditches. Continuing eastward, eventually emerged behind the Dijkwater at the Grevelingenmeer.
The exhibition "about ditches, dunes, Schouwen-Duiveland"
is partly inspired by this trip and will further consist with works made
in response to a drift valley in the Meeuwenduinen near Haamstede.
