The specific structure of the Art Land Thematics reflected the nature of the subject itself. The first part of the residency took place in the Belgian countryside, in a small village called Herzele, and the second part in Brussels. These two locations were chosen in order to generate contradiction and collision. Dividing the residency in space and time was a deliberate attempt to discover how the environment, life, and the community in the two different places are organized, and how a (temporary) art community among the residents could come into being.
