In partnership with the Belgian NGO Vredeseilanden, this project sets up collaborations between farmers and artists to stress the important role that change, community and culture play in society. Throughout the summer these collaborations were seen in different venues across Flanders. In addition to Lucy + Jorge Orta, artists included Nathalie Hunter, Johan Creten, Koen Vanmechelen and Berlinde De Bruyckere.
Within this context Lucy + Jorge Orta present their collaboration with dairy farmers Luc and Krista Callemeyn, which portray their fascination for milk containers. Over the years the artists have observed how people all over the world deal with milk as an in principal essential daily nourishment. The new art works pay tribute to a seemingly insignificant but in fact rather essential utensil. Through this the artists symbolically also express what is at stake within the project.
