Nuit Noire production and C12 present the DREMMWEL exhibition by Pierre Vanneste in Brussels. A transmedia documentary creation (photo, video and sound) on fishing and the exploitation of fishery resources.
Where the machine imposes its rhythm; where mechanically, every day man extracts what he never sows, DREMMWEL invites you into this marine universe where sea workers and fishermen bear witness to the exploitation of species; of seas rippled by human activity, cut by the furrow of boats and the nets that cross them. While in Europe, the latter see the sea emptying, endangering their activity, in West Africa, this same scarcity of the resource leads many fishermen on the paths of emigration.
By scanning all the images on display, the public accesses a chapter of the project’s video narrative. Headphones and smartphones are available to visitors. In addition, a more linear film of the project, lasting 24 minutes, is shown in one of the rooms of the Gallery.
In this project, we deal with both the challenges of industrial fishing and artisanal fishing, as well as the environmental, economic and social consequences. DREMMWEL highlights the systemic and global side of the overexploitation of resources such as that of the sea, the consequences on the countries that depend on them and the (mostly irregular) migrations that result from it.
The exhibition will be held from March 17 to April 17, 2022, Galerie Horta at C12, a stone’s throw from Brussels Central Station. With the team, a permanence and free collective visits on request.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Thursday March 17 from 7 p.m. to midnight. On the program: musical performance on cinematographic projection three screens.
