Mirte van Duppen’s ‘AgriValley’ is a long-term poetic study of agriculture in the Netherlands. In her cinematographic representations, the video artist brings together various production landscapes as a social construct. Here, humans and machines live and work side by side. The futuristic, almost dreamlike images offer insight into the enormous impact of technological innovation in the nation’s agricultural sector. She reveals the contemporary landscape in associative analyses, using visual rhyme and essayistic camerawork. Besides a conversation with former Chief Government Architect Floris van Alkemade, there are contributions by Willem Claassen, Corinne Heyrman, and others.
