Isabel Marcos (Spain 1986, working in Rotterdam and Madrid) has been selected for Kunstfort Kasus 2020, an annual residency program that gives an artist or designer the opportunity to expand their studio work to (the surrounding area of) the Kunstfort for one year.
During Kunstfort Kasus 2020, she will research the architecture of the fort and consider objects that mediate our relation with large bodies of water, such as anchors, chains and buoys. With Liquid Anchors, Isabel will develop a series of site-specific sculptural installations that explore the notion of sinking from a hydrofeminist perspective.
Outside you can hear a sound work from May to August 2021. Isabel made the recordings in collaboration with Kunstfort volunteer Tjitske Baarda. The recordings were made in the fort’s watery canal. By presenting this “soundscape” on land, she brings the movements of underwater to the surface. This is connected to her Kunstfort Kasus research around hydrofeminism; thinking about water in bodies and the environment as related.
