Flintstone Fields (2017) 

performance, gathering

collaboration with artist Krista Smulders and historian Martin Poesen

   

On the old tennis court in the pit, a game has been organised for the first time since the closing of the old quarry. One of the ways in which the factory was able to attract employees in the past, was the wide range of social and sporting activities they were able to offer.  During an afternoon, visitors got the unique opportunity to play on these tennis courts in team tricots designed and made by artist Krista Smulders. To bring a humorous ode to history, the team tricots refer to dinosaurs, Neanderthals, Romans, and factory workers: all different groups who have been known to have lived here and which dominate the history of this place.
