Noordkaap Tour – Closing Part
Het Hof, 3311XG Dordrecht
After a European tour to Munich, Istanbul, Cologne, Budapest, and Lisbon, Noordkaap is coming home with an extensive overview exhibition in October. A selection of artworks that was created during the tour, will be on view in Dordrecht for two weeks. Various locations in the city center set the stage for international exchange between the artists and you! With guided tours, performances, film screenings, and more.
For the exhibition the concept of REMOTEWORDS is being expanded into a virtual game: a large-scale, individually accessible satellite picture of the exhibition premises invites each visitor to cover one roof with a message. The statements are forthwith applied to the satellite picture. Visitors can contribute statements on issues such as urbanity, navigation, digitality, virtual simulation and city (urban) space.
At predetermined times, remote-controlled drones will fly over the 15 x 13 m walk-around satellite picture. The pilotless aircraft is equipped with a CCTV system that, during its flight, relays live images of the area below onto a projection wall. The live image is practically indistinguishable from a real flyover-video of Dordrecht.
