The film and photographs of the exhibition “From Harvest to House” in TN16 document a cross-disciplinary workshop and seminar of the same name that took place in November 2022.
The project is a collaboration between Djernes & Bell architects, Local Works Studio, Agronomist Janne Dinesen (Høst Skole) and artist Nicholas Brooks, this workshop was the first step into a larger investigation of the relation between agriculture and the built environment. The project was underpinned by a desire for a much closer cross-disciplinary connection between those who work with the land, and those who build on the land and with materials from the land with hopes for a regenerative future. During the workshop farmers, materials specialists, geographers, architects and thatchers partook in an immersive weekend seeking to increase the connection between architecture and agriculture.
Based on this experience and examination, the agronomist Janne Dinesen and architect Justine Bell will give an informal talk about the project and the process with its learnings. The talk will be moderated by the researcher, author and activist Emmy Perez Fjalland. Additionally, a film by artist Nicholas Brooks will be screened as well as photographs by Hampus Berndtson.
The project Harvest to House was generously supported by Statens Kunstfond and hosted by Forening Orbi Vrå (Dinesen x KADK)
