upcoming project, 2022 ongoing
For the Honey Landscape I am currently building an extensive collection and archive of honey from dutch bees & their beekeepers. The aim is to reveal a hidden world of immeasurable value.
Each honey is cataloged and presented on the basis of its original location in The Netherlands, so that a reflection of the specific places and plants becomes visible. The collected honey will be shown as an abstract landscape of color codes according to those locations as well as the different shades & color variations. Eventually there will be different versions, each bringing out a new layer and its own ‘landscape’. An overview of The Netherlands as a whole, as well as a breakdown per province or with a specific and local starting point. The Honey Landscape throughout The Netherlands will serve as a pioneer for future expansions and editions of Honey Landscapes within NL and other countries.
If you want to donate honey from your local beekeeper, please mention the following:
location of the hive (city/village + province), type of honey, year of honey, your name and beekeepers association (if applicable)
Pack the honey safely in newspaper, bubble wrap or other filling material in a box.
Send it to: Kim Gromoll, Papenstraat 7, 6211LG Maastricht.
